All-aluminium concept is designed by naval architect Espen Øino and follows 85m explorer Bold
Australian yard Silver Yachts has revealed designs for a 79.5-metre all-aluminium yacht concept.
The design, which has been named Project Silver Edge, was designed by acclaimed naval architect and long-term Silver Yachts collaborator Espen Øino. The concept features a dive centre, beach club, glass-bottomed swimming pool, helipad and winter garden.
Silver Edge follows in the footsteps of of 77m Silver Fast, and acclaimed 85m explorer Bold, which was delivered in 2019 and is the yard’s largest yacht to date.
With an all-aluminium hull and superstructure, Silver Edge has accommodation for 18 guests across eight cabins (owner’s suite, three VIP and four guest rooms) as well as space for 17 crew.
A nine-metre tender can be stowed on the aft deck, which is deployed via a concealed crane, while a forward garage can store smaller tenders, as well as a rescue boat, water toys and jet skis.
The beach club aft includes a swim deck with a gym and dive centre.
The main deck has a 2.8m x 5m swimming pool with a glass bottom, as well as a bar, lounge and winter garden suitable for entertaining.
Founded in 2005, Silver Yachts builds high-performance, custom aluminium superyachts ranging from 73m-100m. Silver Edge will have a beam of 10m and a draft of 2.8m, as well as a generous interior of 1,030 GT, which will be customised to the owner.
