SilverYachts Releases New Renderings of 35 Metre SpaceCat
Australian superyacht builder SilverYachts has revealed new renderings of its 35 metre SpaceCat model.
Designed by long term SilverYachts collaborator Espen Øino, the first in-build SpaceCat has faced minimal disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic and remains on schedule for delivery next year.
Construction continues on the first model at SilverYachts’ Chinese facility in the Guangdong Province.
The model is designed to reduce the environmental impact of yachting and features a light-weight, low-resistance aluminium hull. With a 13.3 metre beam, the SpaceCat will have generous living spaces, with 575 square metres of external space and 300 square metres of living area inside.
Accommodation will be for a total of 12 guests in one master cabin, two doubles and two twin cabins, one with two Pullman beds. The crew quarters, meanwhile, will accommodate eight staff in one double captain’s cabin, two twins and one triple cabin. All cabins on board are ensuite.
Exterior features include a swimming pool aft and plentiful deck space for storing tenders and toys. Power will come from four Volvo IPS 1050 engines for a top speed of 21 knots and cruising speed of 16 knots.
SilverYacht's China based yard is the main facility for the construction of the new series, with highly specialised aluminium fabricators working with SilverYachts’ Australian management team.
Other projects underway at the Western Australian yard include the 85 metre Silver Loft II.
