The 77-metre Silver Fast – which launched this year at Hanseatic Marine in Western Australia – has been listed for sale by Burgess for €79.5 million
The all-aluminium yacht boasts a streamlined hull and metallic silver livery designed by Espen Øino. The 77-metre Silver Fast is the fourth yacht in the Silver series, and the largest and fastest aluminium vessel in the world with conventional propulsion. Weight reduction has been achieved by the use of lightweight aircraft honeycomb construction.
With a top speed of 27 knots from her twin MTUs she is certainly an athletic beast, but she has also been configured for efficient long-range cruising. Her 3,200-nautical-mile maiden voyage from Perth to Sri Lanka was completed at an average speed of 17 knots with fuel consumption of only 400 litres per hour. The slender hull cuts through the waves while her draught of 2.6 metres adds to the flexible cruising package, making her perfect for cruising the shoal waters of the Gulf, the Maldives, the South Pacific and the Bahamas.
Her contemporary interior was created by Andreas Holnburger of Vain Interiors in Germany, with teak panelling and grey glass mirrors as keynote materials. The entire upper deck has been conceived as an owner’s apartment, including an office, a salon and a secluded private deck area.
On the main deck, aft of the salon, is the yacht’s ‘theatre room’ with a plasma cinema screen. From there, you can head to the ‘winter garden’ – a glass-screened, air-conditioned space that allows for flexible indoor/outdoor dining. The beach club boasts a gym and a comprehensive spa facility with sauna, steam room, massage room and beauty salon, while on the sundeck the mirrored bar front converts into a TV to allow movies to be viewed from the glass-fronted eight-person hot-tub. The foredeck’s touch-and-go helipad is suitable for an AgustaWestland AW109 or a Eurocopter EC135.
It is expected that the yacht will make her public bow at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
