SILVER FAST - sporty and sleek designed 77m by Silver Yachts

Launch Pictures by Guillaume Plisson

Espen Oeino made a very sleek exterior design which is remarkable for Silver Yachts. The yard gave her a silver paint. Silver Fast will reach a top speed of 29 knots with her twin MTU engines with a power of 2720 KW each.

Silver Yachts describes her as

“the fastest long-range cruising yacht”

Of course, 4.500 nautical miles at 18 knots or 6.000 nautical miles at 14 knots are impressive. The tender garage is in the bow area and opens via gullwing doors. The yard equipped her with zero speed stabilizers by Quantum for the highest standard of comfort while at anchor.

Dragonfly Yacht Vanuatu

Motor Yacht "Dragonfly" helped in Vanuatu

The captain of the 73m motor yacht "Dragonfly" (built by Silver Yachts in 2009) published a video of their mission in Vanuatu.

In Vanuatu raged a cyclone in mid of March 2015 and many aid organization helped there. One of them is YachtAid Global with M/Y Dragonfly. A big, big, big thank you to the crew, YachtAid Global and all other people who helped there :)

Captain Mike Gregory comments:

“Whilst on board in the week leading up to the 14th March, the crew and I were watching a storm develop in the South Pacific with trepidation. Having spent the past few years cruising these beautiful areas we have made many friends and developed relationships with the local communities in these island groups. Unfortunately, our fears were realized when the storm became a Cat 5 Cyclone and on the 14th March, it ran straight over the top of the remote island chain of Vanuatu, 1,000 Miles East of Australia. It was a horrible feeling knowing that the people of Vanuatu were suffering and we felt compelled to assist in whatever way we could. After a discussion, the Owners fully supported the decision to head south and assist those same people that had been so hospitable to us in recent years

The team that we have on Dragonfly are exceptional, we have over recent years developed our medical training program and all crew are highly trained with 5 EMT’s & a Dr on board we were well positioned to act as first responders on the many islands that we visited”
