Australian yard Silver Yachts launched MY Bold in May in Fremantle, WA and then exhibited her in Monaco to much acclaim.
The all-aluminium cruiser is described by the yard as “a fast world explorer vessel with a genuine, fully-fledged superyacht finish”.
The Espen Øino-penned design is centred around a spectacular skylounge, which measures 300-square-metres and features 3.75-metre high floor-to-ceiling windows.
The interior was designed by Andreas Hölnburger of Vain Interiors using teak and oak panelling, metallic painted features and oak and marble flooring.
Alfresco spaces abound on the superyacht sundeck, with its sunbeds and sun lounges, while the upper deck aft features a jacuzzi and more sunbeds.
Bold’s main deck aft has been designed as the superyacht helipad, with folding handrails and bulwarks so that a helicopter with a D value of 13 can be accommodated, for example an AW109.
A 3,000 Litre heli-fuel storage tank further enhances Bold’s explorer yacht credentials.
Accommodation is for up to 18 guests split between eight cabins, including an owner’s suite, three VIPs and four guest cabins, while 13 further cabins allow for a staff of up to 24 people.
Bold’s top speed is 24 knots and she boasts a maximum cruising range of 4500.0nm at 18 knots with power coming from two 3860.0hp MTU 16V4000M73L diesel engines.
Silver Yachts’ future builds include the 100-metre Espen Øino-designed Silver Global, which will be the first in a new series of larger volume, high-performance superyachts with global cruising range.
