With its lavish living quarters and striking aluminum hull, the 77-meter Silver Fast superyacht is not only one of the most gorgeous yachts in the water, it also is one of the fastest. With speeds up to 27 knots (31mph), the Silver Fast can make the run from Australia to Europe in three short weeks without stopping to refuel.
The Silver Fast is the epitome of luxury with an extravagant owner’s suite and room for up to 18 overnight guests who have access to a sun deck with an outdoor cinema, a mirrored bar, and an eight-person hot tub. There’s also a beach club with a gym for an at-sea workout, a massage room for relaxation, and a beauty salon for those last minute trims. Guests who need a little extra assistance can seek out one of the yacht’s 18 attentive crew members. And in the rare case an emergency arises, the boat can even accommodate a twin-engine helicopter on its landing pad.
One of the biggest selling points for the Silver Fast is its sleek and efficient design. The narrow beam hull and the twin 3,630hp MTU engines provide both fast 22 knots cruising speeds and fuel efficiency. The slender hull also provides vibration-free passage at speeds up to 20 knots, a great combination for those last-minute, late-night excursions. Silver Fast also has a shallow draft of only 2.6m, which allows it to travel in areas other similarly sized yachts cannot access.
Designed by naval architect Espen Oeino and Vain Interiors, the yacht was built by Silver Yachts in Australia and is being sold by superyacht brokerage firm Burgess Yachts. “This ground-breaking superyacht is a real head-turner and offers speed, efficiency and stylish luxury in equal measure,” said Burgess about its flagship superyacht.
To showcase the boat’s performance, Burgess recently sailed the Silver Fast from Perth to Sri Lanka as part of the yacht’s 3,200 nautical mile maiden voyage. During the trip, the boat traveled at an average speed of 17 knots and consumed 400 liters of fuel per hour. If you are interested in the Silver Fast, Burgess is selling the yacht for €79.5 million ($85 million).
