Silveryachts Sell Their First SpaceCat Superyacht

Australian shipyard Silveryachts has sold its first SpaceCat superyacht. The first hull from the series, SpaceCat is an Espen Oeino designed 36-metre catamaran with 400 square metres of outdoor space and a lightweight, low-resistance hull.

In development for over two years, the spacious catamaran was constructed to the highest standard at Silveryacht’s Chinese facility and with a 13.3-metre beam, it can comfortably sleep up to 10 guests, five crew members and the captain.

Delivery of the completed vessel is slated for next month and the identity of the Asian buyer has been kept under wraps. What we do know is that SpaceCat’s eco-credentials are top-notch, with the catamaran making use of a Volvo Penta IPS propulsion system, which boasts benefits like increased maneuverability, fewer emissions and better fuel efficiency than traditional diesel.

The 300 square metres of interior space is utilised well, and a large swimming pool on the aft deck extends out from the cavernous salon. This deck is huge; approximately 202 square metres of space is more than enough for socialising and relaxing. Despite being comparatively small for a superyacht measuring in at 36-metre in length, the benefits of two hulls are evident in these wide-open spaces. The vessel’s volume is comparable to that of a traditional 164-foot (50-metre) monohull motor yacht.

There are other benefits to the SpaceCat’s catamaran design, as well as increased stability and manoeuvrability, Silveryachts has developed low resistance hull technology that not only allows for a smooth ride but uses less fuel and emits fewer pollutants.

Now let’s talk about that exterior. Renowned designer and naval architect Espen Oenio has outdone himself in creating functional and practical, yet elegant and stylish outdoor areas where guests and the owner are sure to feel comfortable and at ease.

Alfresco dining and sun loungers are located on the aft upper deck, while the sundeck features a tender storage space aft with sun loungers and bow loungers. The two hulls can be connected by a hydraulic platform creating a spacious beach club at the stern.

The SpaceCat Superyacht will be able to cruise to shallow waters thanks to its tiny 1.82-metre draft and vistas from the couches in the salon will be world-class, thanks to the large windows along either side of the yacht. The interior colour palette is a relaxing, contemporary nautical pale wood and marine white, while the onboard furniture is sumptuous and modern. Italian firm, Pulina Exclusive Interiors, has created beautiful spaces that are fresh and vibrant.
