Globalfast is the second hull of the Silver World Explorer Series and the sixth hull overall from Australian-based builder SILVERYACHTS.
She will now share the title of the world’s longest and fastest aluminium explorer yacht.
Her unmistakable exterior design and unique layout has been designed by Espen Øino and features a raised saloon, also known as the Loft, that provides spectacular views.
The in-house team at SILVERYACHTS have once again delivered an interior that is sophisticated and spacious, accommodating guests over eight staterooms including the master suite.
The raised sun deck aboard Globalfast allows room for a voluminous alfresco dining area.
Globalfast continues is highly efficient, a continuous theme from SILVERYACHTS, with a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising speed of 18 knots.
Globalfast is equipped with a 24/7 commercial helipad and helicopter hangar, as well as a seriously capable aft deck crane to take any toy anywhere.

Built in 2005, SILVERYACHTS’ state-of-the-art shipyard facilities cover over 6,000 square metres and are home to two building halls, a fit-out hall, an interiors division, design offices and workshop spaces.
The yard benefits from the advanced infrastructure of the AMC site, which includes an 8065-tonne lift that is able to lift yachts of up to 140 metres in length.
Building only in aluminium, the yard has a specialist team of metalworkers on site who are masters of this notoriously tricky material.
With a yacht’s paintwork and finish such an important aspect of the build, the team also includes paint and fairing specialists.
