Silver Fast is the luxurious aluminum yacht with the largest and fastest conventional engine in the industry. The vessel was awarded the top prize at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.
This gigantic 252-feet vessel is powered by two MTU 16V 4000 M90 diesel engines , capable of a maximum speed of 27 knots with a cruising speed of 17 knots. Its spectacular performance allows for an autonomy of 4,500 nautical miles at 18 knots and 6,200 nautical miles at a cruising speed of 14 knots. This means the yacht can go from Australia to Europe in just 21 days.
These amazing ranges are complemented by state of the art stability and soundproofing systems, ensuring calm and pleasant conditions for all passengers. The yacht has a draft of only 2.6 meters, allowing access to places where many other yachts of this size cannot reach.
With capacity for 18 passengers and 18 crew members, the interior was designed by the renowned German company Vain Interiors. The third level accommodates an exclusive cabin for the owner with dressing room, en suite bathroom, desk, panoramic views and a private terrace. For the other passengers, the Silver Fast features cabins designed with a clear oriental style. These include three VIP cabins, one double luxury cabin and three more cabins with two single beds each.
The upper terrace has an outdoor theater and an impressive glass-paneled Jacuzzi—large enough for 8 guests. The super yacht has a beach club with a dry sauna, steam room, gym, massage room and entertainment room. There is also a large dining room for 20 guests —which can be protected by retractable glass panels. Next to the dinning area, we find an exquisitely decorated living room with sofas and coffee tables.
The yacht’s furnishings remind us of the 1970s but in a very contemporary way, with rooms lined with polished woods, leather chairs and bulky sofas, modern lighting, carpeted floors and wicker chairs for outdoor environments.
Towards the bow—at the bridge level—there is a generous heliport, which can be used as a beach lounge when not in use for its original purpose. Below there is a tender garage for water vehicles with lateral gull-wing doors.
For her amazing performance, slim beam, sleek appearance and sexy exterior lines, the Silver Fast has a market price will be around $88 million. ■
