To be debuted at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, the SS18 is the first in a series of luxury craft, ranging from 18m to 80 metres by the UK-based company Glider Yachts. The project is designed to be a high performance day craft set to deliver a new level of experience to the industry’s high-speed luxury market.
Following eight years of design and planning, the SS18 is ready to be hand crafted in the UK by Burgess Marine. The yacht features a cabin with custom interior by Corbeau with match cockpit that has been outfitted with a bespoke dashboard housing integrated system controls by Garmin. This enables users to effortlessly control all of the vessel’s handling and system functions.
Created of high-grade aluminium, the SS18 is fitted with four 270hp supercharged engines allowing clients to make a trip from Monaco to St Tropez in 45 minutes, reaching a speed of 56 knots. The SS18 is to be followed by the faster Hyper Sports 18, with Glider Yachts planning a range of superyachts of up to 80 metres in the near future.
