Not much news comes from Australian yacht builder SilverYachts, but when word reaches us from down under, it usually is good news. This is once again the case with the shipyard’s latest build update on its largest project to date which is reportedly on-track for a late 2018 delivery.

Silver LoftThe vessel is once again a collaboration between shipyard owner Guido Krass and designer Espen Oeino who created a fast world-cruising explorer yacht that is finished to superyacht standard. The efficient beam to length ratio that the yard’s Silver Series has become known for forms once again the foundation of this unique project and is also why she will be able to reach a top speed of 24 knots and a range of 5,000 nm so effortlessly.Silver Loft under constructionSilver LoftThe yard is currently busy with the outfitting of the main and upper decks of German designer Andreas Hölnburger’s interior from Vain Interiors.

The plant room incorporates self-contained 3,000 litres heli-fuel storage and transfer systems. The 12-ton aft deck crane with 15m reach allows the launch and retrieval of the vast array of tenders and toys that can be accommodated on this 34-meter long deck.
