Australian shipyard SilverYachts has been moving from strength to strength over the last year. The company's eye-catching explorer yachts feature the distinctly military-style lines of Espen Øino that are instantly recognisable, and with the recent launch of Silver Edge, it has pushed it to the forefront of the superyacht industry. SilverYachts unveils Globalfast, its sixth hull, with SilverYachts' characteristic sharp bow and powerful lines.
The 85.3-metre Globalfast will offer her owner a yachting experience like no other. The all-aluminium superyacht has an 11-metre beam and 1,561 GT interior, more than enough space to accommodate her 12 guests. SilverYachts has packed the vessel full of innovations to improve the quality of life onboard. The upgrades done to the superyacht Bold during her last service have been transferred to Globalfast, including an improved stabilisation system to reduce roll at anchor and underway, a more efficient propeller, and increased fuel capacity to increase her range to 5,800 nautical miles.
Globalfast features a four deck arrangement and each level has been designed to maximise the space for her guests to enjoy. Unlike many superyachts that offer prime positioning for the master suite on the main deck, while the additional staterooms are relegated to the lower deck, Globalfast offers all guests suites on the main deck, while the owner has a deck of their own.
On this deck, the owner can enjoy ultimate privacy across the full-beam. The 60 square-metre suite has twin ensuites, an office, and a generous private lounge called the “Owner’s Loft” with floor-to-ceiling windows. To the aft of the Owner’s Loft is the Winter Garden, a large lounge and dining room with direct access from the main deck making it available for all guests without intrusion on the owner’s private space. This area is filled with light from the wrap-around tinted glazed windows and is perfect for exploring any destination in any climate whilst being sheltered from elements.
The additional seven staterooms have the run of the main deck, meaning direct access to the aft deck, the ocean, and sea views. The living space on the main deck spans 120 square-metres which include three VIP double cabins and four queens.
The main deck is where all the action happens aboard Globalfast. With its certified helideck, toy storage and helicopter hangar that can be converted into a cinema or disco, this deck is the true heart of the yacht. Globalfast makes good use of an eight tonne telescopic crane to port and deck can accommodate a 5 metre RIB, a centre console RIB, and a hard top RIB alongside any extra toys the owner can dream of.
The bulwarks on either side of the aft deck hydraulically fold down, so that when the tenders and toys are launched or stowed in the garages, the space opens out into a giant entertainment area, ideal for parties or activities. To the aft of this impressive deck, stairs lead down to the swim platform and lazarette, where smaller toys can be stowed for quick access to the water.
For guests looking to escape the crowds and enjoy some privacy while moored, the upper deck with its alfresco dining area and full comprehensive bar may be ideal. The deck also houses the captain's cabin and wheelhouse. Unlike previous hulls, this deck's overhang has been raised, creating a voluminous outdoor area suitable for larger outdoor gatherings.
Finally, tiered above this is the sundeck, with sun lounges and a Jacuzzi to the fore, and private dining and lounges to the aft.
As well as her 12 guests, Globalfast can accommodate a full crew of up to nine and a staff of 11, accommodated on the lower deck where they have easy access to the galley, laundry, garbage disposal, storage, and engine rooms.
