Luxury yacht builder Silver Yachts manufactures custom, high-performance aluminium superyachts ranging from 73 to 100 metres. Based in the Australian Marine Complex (AMC) in Fremantle, Western Australia, the shipyard works with internationally recognised naval architect Espen Øino, and provides its customers with a full range of construction and design services.
History of Silver Yachts
The company, officially known as Hanseatic Marine, was founded in 2005 by entrepreneur Guido Krass in order to begin construction on the superyacht builder’s first vessel, Silver (now Rabdan), which was launched in 2007. At 73 metres in length, Rabdan ranked as the largest all-aluminum vessel in the world.
Notable builds by Silver Yachts
In 2009, superyacht builder Silver Yachts introduced Silver Zwei (now Dragonfly), which at 78 metres took over the title of the world’s largest aluminum superyacht. This year, the shipyard launched the 77m superyacht Silverfast. Future builds include the 100m Espen Øino-designed Silver Global, which will be the first in a new series of larger volume, high-performance superyachts with global cruising range.

Australian superyacht builder Silver Yachts specialises in aluminium yacht construction and employs a dedicated metalworking team of masters in the use of this material on site, including paint and fairing specialists.
