Tillberg Design of Sweden has unveiled new renderings of the 22-metre SilverCat project currently in-build at the Australian shipyard Silver Yachts Asian facility. Work has begun on construction after the initial project discussions in late 2021.
The semi-custom power catamaran penned by Espen Øino has a 10.8-metre beam and “interior volume equivalent to that of a 35 to 45m monohull with a volume of 180 GT," according to the design team.
Now part of the Viken Group, Tillberg Design of Sweden has appointed Daniel Nerhagen, partner and director of Tillberg Design of Sweden to oversee the build project. Nerhagen explained that “the exterior design and the basic elements of the vessel were already complete when we were brought on board, but we had complete freedom when it came to the layout of the interior and open deck spaces and the design and style".
The Scandinavian-influenced interior design combines oak wood with vibrant colours of oranges and blues within the soft furnishings, complemented by a natural palette that lets the colours shine through.
“The brief was for a lot of loose furniture so the yacht could be changed according to an owner’s taste, but overall, the brief was to create something different,” explained Nerhagen.
The 22-metre power catamaran offers accommodation configurations for up to ten guests and communal areas benefit from a 65.5-square-metre main saloon with wraparound windows, a formal dining space and a lounge.
Once completed, SilverCat will reach speeds of up to 20 knots, thanks to power from twin Volvo D13 engines. Alongside this entry-level 22-metre model of the SilverCat series, Silver Yachts also offers a 23.9-metre SC24.
Antonio Romano, commercial director of the Viken Group said the project was "a showcase of the diversity of the company and the talents that lie within our team".Read More/SilverYachts expands SilverCat series with two new models
