Super Yacht Silver

May 3, 2009 – one of the most mysterious mega-yachts of our time, Silver, was built in 2007 by the Australian Hanseatic Marine shipyards according to the design of Espen Oeyno, it is interesting not only for the mystery that has surrounded it since the beginning of construction, but also for its construction.From above, the yacht looks like a narrow flying arrow, but despite the narrowing of the hull with a length of 73.3 meters, inside the yacht itself is elegance combined with various twists and turns of the 21st century. In some ways, the hull of the yacht resembles the designs of the beginning of the 20th century, but in addition to the unusual graceful appearance and speed, the narrow hull allows her to go to places where standard Silver size yachts cannot enter.

In general, the customer of the yacht set the designer a very difficult task, to combine speed and long-term autonomy, large size and energy saving, and to crown all this aesthetically – both externally and internally.
The model of the yacht passed various tests at the Krylov Research Institute in St. Petersburg and at the SSPA in Sweden. The width of the yacht is only 10 meters, that is, the length / width ratio is unusually large.

The yacht is distinguished by its extremely light weight, only 540 tons, which was made possible thanks to the use of aluminum as the main building material for the hull and superstructure. The yacht is very fast, but the power plant is not ordinary in such cases, gas turbine, and the engines are 2 x 3.352 hp. MTU 16V 4000 M71.

At the transatlantic passage, the yacht showed a very high average of 22 knots. The construction of the yacht itself was an event that excited the world of mega-yacht lovers, it was wrapped in such a veil of secrecy and secrets that naturally, a huge number of rumors, gossip and speculation appeared. But when the yacht finally appeared to the world, it did not disappoint anyone, becoming a sensation and deservedly received the title of super-yacht.

Sail yacht Silver

The yacht was built according to the safety requirements for passenger ships and received the Lloyd’s class. Silver has one luxury cabin, five double luxury and two double cabins, it can take on board 18 passengers, a crew of 16 people.
The most modern light materials were used in the decoration of the yacht, decks lined with marble covered with white handmade carpets, giant LCD satellite TVs were installed everywhere, the wifi system provides access to the Internet.

About all kinds of luxury and special decors, the general style of the yacht (minimalist, if it tells you something, but I don’t hear anything, how do I understand and understand the least furniture?), I admit, it’s hard to write because I’m nothing I don’t understand. Imagine sofas and armchairs upholstered in white real leather, I can.
But what is a special style of walnut furniture, I have no idea. In short, a yacht has everything that your heart desires, for any fantasy.
There is a swimming pool and a gym, a sauna, a cinema, a helipad, a special hangar for a whole flotilla of small boats, from a water bike to pleasure boats and diving equipment. You don’t have to worry about the pitching either, the yacht is equipped with powerful stabilizers, and special contours of the bow protect the upper decks with precious bodies of passengers from splashes.

The yacht is currently for charter in Mediterranean cruises operated by Burgess, Edmiston & Co and YCO Yacht. But the owner of the yacht, whose name remains unknown, plans cruises in other parts of the world right up to the Arctic, the yacht turned out to be very seaworthy, and even severe storms are not afraid of her.
Unless, of course, there are fans of the winter North Atlantic or the no less ferocious southern forties – but there are few places in the World Ocean where you can whirl from the heart, to desire.

In the meantime, anyone can charter a yacht for a week of a graceful Mediterranean cruise for only 480,000 euros, even an average official in Russia can do it, according to media information about their income. We all the rest, not officials and not oligarchs, can only lick and dream. And admire the photograph – Silver is really good.
