US-based, Norwegian designer Kurt Strand Design has collaborated with Swedish interior designer Acoya Design House on a 77-metre concept called Silence.
Inspired by "the essence of Scandinavian minimalism", Silence's exterior is characterised by a low profile and gently curved sheerline. The superyacht is named after its electric mode feature, which allows it to run up to eight hours in silence.
Silence spans four decks with floor-to-ceiling glazing and an open, airy floor plan. Accommodation is across seven cabins, including an owner's cabin with a private Jacuzzi and sunbathing area. The main saloon opens up to the beach club pool and lounge area, while the upper deck is mainly occupied by the owner's cabin. Silence also offers a formal, 14-person dining area, arranged beside oversized panoramic windows to create "a strong connection to the environment".
Acoya Design House's interiors are "anchored in nature" and feature Nordic-style minimalism, including a subtle, light colour palette and "organic shapes" such as real greenery. "Going forward we will see more of the pared-back yacht interiors to counterbalance today’s busy lifestyles and cluttered environment," explained founder Anja Carlsson.
The sun deck is designed as the main entertainment area with another Jacuzzi, ample sofa seating, a firepit and an outdoor cinema. Installed with a helipad, the foredeck is also envisioned as a wellness area that can be transformed into a place to "party or sun lounge". The lower level would have storage for two 10-metre custom tenders, six Jet Skis and a variety of other water toys.
Silence can reach a maximum speed of 26 knots.Read More/The latest standout new superyacht concepts
