Not long after the completion of the 85-metre Bold at SilverYachts’ shipyard in Henderson, Western Australia, the builder has now welcomed the hull of what will become a sistership to the already famous fast world explorer yacht. Hull number 006 in the yard’s construction book was transported from Jiangmen, China earlier this month and will now undergo outfitting.
This second project will feature many of the same elements as her sistership, Bold. “It is not just the same platform, it is the same identical boat,” commented shipyard Founder, Guido Krass in a recent interview with SuperYacht Times. This no-nonsense world cruiser is designed to take on transoceanic passages with the utmost confidence while able to carry a host of impressive tenders, toys and exploration craft including two 10.5-metre tenders and a helicopter that is stowed in a semi-enclosed hangar on deck.Photo: Guillaume Plisson
One of the highlights of the yacht’s interior is its distinctive loft-style sky lounge that covers over 300 square metres. This indoor-outdoor space opens up via wrap-around glass sliding doors to allow fresh air and natural light to create an apartment-like feel not commonly experienced at sea. Elsewhere, up to eight guest staterooms are spread across the upper and main decks for a total of 16 overnight guests, as Silver Loft is built according to SOLAS PYC regulations.

The project remains for sale and is expected to be ready for delivery by 2021.
