Burgess recently announced that its brand new, 77-metre Silver Fast is now available for sale.
The company claims that the Silver Fast is the world’s largest and fastest aluminium motor yacht that uses conventional propulsion. Its styling, with a sleek, streamlined hull and metallic silver livery, was designed by Espen Øino. She is the fourth and most advanced vessel in the multiple award-winning Silver Series, whose DNA is based on high calibre all-aluminium superyachts with fast, fuel-efficient credentials and long range cruising capabilities, Burgess says.
The yacht’s performance was demonstrated on her recent 3,200 nautical mile maiden voyage from Perth, Western Australia to Sri Lanka, which she completed at an average speed of 17 knots with fuel consumption of 400 litres per hour. Delivering a range of 4,500 nautical miles at 18 knots, Silver Fast’s MTU engines can carry her to a top speed of 27 knots in optimum conditions, and her long-range cruising speed is 20 to 22 knots. Proven for long ocean passages in all sea states, her hull cuts through the waves with ease and she is quiet and vibration-free for night-time passages at 18 to 20 knots. Quantum zero-speed stabilisers keep her equally comfortable at anchor. Her shallow draft (2.6m) makes her perfect for cruising the shoal waters of the Gulf, the Maldives, the South Pacific and the Bahamas, according to Burgess.
Silver Fast’s airy, contemporary interior was conceived by Andreas Holnburger of Vain Interiors to be both fresh and luxurious, the company says. Teak panelling and grey glass mirrors are complemented by innumerable custom finishes such as metallic painted walls with leather steps on the central stairwell.
The main deck features panoramic views from large picture windows and leads aft to the ‘theatre room’ with a huge plasma cinema screen. From there you can head out into the ‘winter garden’—a glass-screened, air-conditioned space that allows for flexible indoor/outdoor dining whatever the weather. Wraparound sliding glass doors shield wind and rain without detracting from the view,
while the mirrored ceiling adds light to the dining area below, which can seat up to 20 guests.
The entire upper deck is reserved for the owner’s apartment, which features the master suite with centreline double bed, his and her bathrooms and walk-in wardrobe forward. Further aft there is an office and large saloon, leading to the owner’s ‘outdoor retreat’—a secluded private deck area. Guest accommodation is configured across seven further cabins: three VIP suites are located forward on the main deck, and four guest cabins are amidships on the lower deck.
The spacious sea-level area, known as the ‘beach club’, on the Silver Fast has been expanded to allow for more gym equipment in the spa facility with customised sauna, hot steam room, massage room and beauty salon. On the sun deck, the mirrored bar front converts into a TV to allow movies to be viewed from the glass-fronted, eightperson jacuzzi.
The tender stowage area is accessed via forward gull wing doors and houses two 7.4-metre all-weather customtenders. On the foredeck, the “touch and go” helipad is suitable for an Agustawestland AW109 or a Eurocopter EC135.
As well as being fully decked out, this superyacht is a real head-turner and offers speed, efficiency and stylish luxury in equal measure, Burgess says. The Silver Fast is available for sale from Burgess as Central Agents with an asking price of 79.5 million euros.
