The first in an innovative line of highly efficient superyachts, Rabdan (launched as Silver) led the way of SilverYachts’ ultra cool Silver Series of yachts. Built under the Hanseatic Marine brand, the shipyard today operates under its new name and has since 2007 delivered another three superyachts in the series including Dragonfly, Smeralda and Silver Fast.
One of Australia’s largest superyachts by volume, the 61.4-metre trimaran White Rabbit was built by North West Bay Yachts in Tasmania in 2005 to a design by local Aussie designer Sam Sorgiovanni. The aluminium specialists are currently working on a larger, 84-metre version of White Rabbit for the same owner. The yacht is often seen in Singapore where here home berth is located.Photo: Tom van Oossanen / SuperYacht Times
Oceana was launched in 1991 as Oceana C at Australian shipyard Oceanfast to a design by Jon Bannenberg. Her Aileen Rodriguez interior is a bright and comfortable affair with light woods, white lacquered surfaces and soothing veneers making these spaces feel very airy and spacious. She has changed hands several times over the years but after a recent refit under the command of her new owner, she is looking as good as new.Photo: Merijn de Waard / SuperYacht Times
Another superyahct by the Western Australia shipyard, Oceanfast is the 54-metre Fortunate Sun. Fortunate Sun is the only superyacht to feature a Tim Heywood interior, who also worked on the project’s exterior design. She was launched in 2003 as Perfect Prescription for an American owner.
One of the most colourful superyachts afloat today has got to be the 69-metre Saluzi. Built by Austal in 2003, this Australian yacht underwent a big refit in 2013 at Horizon where her interior was modified and cosmetic changes to the exterior were made, including the colourful artwork that makes her so recognisable today.Photo: Merijn de Waard / SuperYacht Times
