It wasn’t the largest vessel at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show – that honor went to the 278-ft. Solandge built by Germany’s Lurssen – but the judges echoed our own sentiments in honoring the 252-ft. Super Fast, designed by the incomparable Espen Oeino, with the coveted Finest New Yacht Award. The incredible superyacht, which was recently listed for sale at about $89 million with Burgess Yachts, is the world’s largest and fastest aluminum motor yacht with conventional propulsion, capable of speeds in excess of 27 knots and a cruising speed of up to 20 knots.
According to Jared Paul Stern and Pursuitist the yacht can boast a long range cruising capability of 20-22 knots while her shallow draft of just 2.6m allows her to cruise in areas that are off limits to many vessels of comparable size. Silver Fast is finished in striking dark silver paint which emphasizes her sleek lines and gives a hint of the speeds she is capable of. Launched earlier this year by Australia’s Silver Yachts, she is also designed for exceptional fuel consumption thanks to lightweight construction, allowing her to make the three-week journey from the shipyard in Australia to Monaco with only one fuel stop.
