The long and lovely 253-foot Silveryachts Silver Fast distinguished itself as the “Finest New Yacht” at the show’s awards on opening night of the Monaco Yacht Show. The silver-painted beauty, from Australia’s Silveryachts, sports an exterior by Espen Øino and a contemporary interior by Vain Interiors from Germany.
Vain made excellent use of the abundant interior space: Three VIP suites are situated on the main deck, and three other staterooms on the deck below. A deck entirely devoted to the owner sits above, with a large suite offering 180-degree sea views, his and her bathrooms, a private salon, and a secluded outdoor terrace. In the beach club below, guests can enjoy a beauty salon, a massage room, showers, a sauna, and a full gymnasium. Silver Fast’s hull really lives up to the ship’s name, delivering a top speed of 27 knots and, while cruising at 18 knots, has a range of 4,500 nautical miles. (silveryachts.com)
