Speed and style

Virtuozity - - Boating -

THERE WAS NO SHORT­AGE of ex­tremely lux­u­ri­ous yachts dis­played at the Dubai In­ter­na­tional Boat Show, but there was one that stood out among all oth­ers. The Sil­ver Fast fea­tures lav­ish in­te­ri­ors, enough room for 18 guests and is not just one of the most stylish su­pery­achts in the world – but also one of the fastest.

De­signed by Espen Oeino, one of world’s fa­mous yacht de­sign­ers, the Sil­ver Fast fea­tures the same su­per-sleep con­tour and unique hull lines of its much-prized pre­de­ces­sors, but with a strik­ing new all dark sil­ver paint. It is one of the most ad­vanced, eco-fuel ef­fi­cient ves­sel in the ground-break­ing sil­ver se­ries.

Built by Aus­tralia’s pre­mier lux­ury yacht builder, Sil­very­achts, the 77 me­tre ves­sel is ca­pa­ble of over 27 knots in op­ti­mal con­di­tions, mak­ing it he world’s largest and fastest alu­minium mo­tor yacht with con­ven­tional propul­sion in terms of length to speed ra­tio.

It is also the the fastest long range cruis­ing yacht, ca­pa­ble of 4,500 nau­ti­cal miles at 18 knots and 6,000 nau­ti­cal miles at 14 knots. This means it is ca­pa­ble of cross­ing the At­lantic at ap­prox­i­mately 22 knots cruis­ing speed, which per­for­mance is record-break­ing.

Driven by two MTU En­gines with 2720kw @ 2100 rpm, Sil­ver Fast is fur­ther­more equipped with 3 North­ern Lights Gen­er­a­tors, 4x4 Quan­tum Zero Speed sta­bilis­ers and a unique in­no­va­tive ten­der garage via dis­tinc­tive gull wing doors.

The very mod­ern and cool in­te­rior styling is com­ple­mented by a range of beau­ti­ful fur­nish­ings and art, cre­at­ing spa­ces that are both wel­com­ing and con­tem­po­rary. Guest ac­com­mo­da­tions are spread across three decks, in seven en suite cab­ins, en­sur­ing pri­vacy and sump­tu­ous spa­ces.

At 18 - 20 knots the yacht is quiet and vi­bra­tion-free mak­ing it per­fect for fast and fuel-ef­fi­cient long overnight pas­sages with low noise lev­els around 40/45 deci­bels.

Of par­tic­u­lar note is the owner’s liv­ing space, which is spread across a full deck and boasts a spa­cious lounge lead­ing to a pri­vate deck, as well as a lux­u­ri­ous cabin with 180-de­gree views, his and hers en suites and a study area.

There are also seven suites which can
