Silver Yachts has announced that Silver Fast, its new 77m motoryacht, was launched on Sunday 29th March 2015.

Based in Henderson, Western Australia, Silver Yachts says Silver Fast is the fourth and the most advanced, eco-fuel efficient vessel in its Silver series. At 77m (252.6ft), she will have a top speed of close to 29 knots in optimal conditions.

Designed by Espen Oeino, Silver Fast retains the super-sleek contour and unique hull lines of her predecessors, but with a striking new all silver paint, the colour that Oeino always had in mind from the beginning of the project.

In addition, the builder also claims Silver Fast is the world’s largest and fastest aluminium motoryacht with conventional propulsion in terms of length to speed ratio. She is also the fastest long range cruising yacht – 4,500 nautical miles at 18 knots and 6,000 nautical miles at 14 knots with an already proven capability to effortlessly complete long passages in every sea state.

Silver Fast is capable of crossing the Atlantic at approximately 22 knots cruising speed. Driven by two MTU Engines with 2720kW @ 2100 rpm, Silver Fast is also equipped with three Northern Lights generators, Quantum Zero Speed stabilisers and an innovative tender garage via distinctive gull wing doors.

The yacht will be undergoing sea trials and her delivery is planned mid May 2015 as she will be ready to sail away for a buyer.

Silver Yachts (formerly Hanseatic Marine) commenced operations in 2005. The company is a member of Superyacht Builders Association (SYBAss), and works hand-in-hand with naval architect and designer Espen Oeino.

The shipyard operates out of purpose built facilities occupying over 8,000sq m within the Australian Marine Complex. The site comprises two major ship building halls, a fit-out hall, workshop spaces and design offices.
