Yacht Charter Silver

Silver

There are large yachts for charter, there are contemporary styled yachts for charter and there are fast yachts for charter. A select few are a combination of two categories, but only Silver can honestly lay claim to being at the cutting edge of all three. Quite simply - she is in a league of her own.

Over 73 metres (240') of aluminium, laser cut into Espen Oeino's radical design that slices through the water at 30 knots. Solas certified, she can sleep 18 guests, has an entire deck dedicated to the principal guest and no less than six major entertainment areas. Consider yet another awesome attribute: her stablisation system is so sophisticated that, with only 2.3 metres of draft, Silver can anchor in sublime turquoise water or equally well sail transatlantic at 22 knots. Energy efficiency is a priority and, at 18 knots, she only uses 500 litres of fuel per hour. So much for the logic - how about her emotional appeal?

Silver is awesome. Long, lean, it is an understatement to label her as the 'silver streak'. Her lines are so precise that, for once, the phrase "no compromise" is justified. The latest 'must-have' yacht feature - the beach club - is created by a clever piece of engineering forethought. With her two, eight-metre tenders held in forward garages, the enormous sub transom area has space for a sunken bar, gymnasium, cinema, built-in sofas and large sunbeds. Steps lead to the teaked swimming platform with a pivoting diving board.

The aft main deck is an all-day affair with a massive, square, sunbed that converts into a dance floor with music supplied from a mobile console. The sunbed that becomes a dance floor can also become a helipad.

More ideas? Try the innovative forward main deck terrace, where 24 guests can sit around four tables. After dining, the tables are hydraulically lowered to create a vast cushioned sunbed. Of course, there is also a sun deck. Sunbeds forward and aft are separated by a dining table and a double-sided bar.

The Japanese/Italian interior design style is beautifully executed. Gloss, richly grained panelling, oversized sofas and simple, clean lines are the overall theme. While the styling is contemporary, it avoids the austerity of many minimalistic interiors.
