Australian shipyard SilverYachts has revealed details of two new models set to join the SilverCat series, an entry-level 22-metre SC22 and a 23.9-metre SC24.
The new additions are based on the original 36-metre SilverCat design by Espen Øino billed as a true "villa-on-water". Construction is already underway on the smallest in the fleet, the SC22, with the aluminium hull and superstructure completed, while the first SC24 will begin construction next month.
Unlike the series flagship, the SC22's interior has been envisioned by Tillberg Design of Sweden, while the SC24's interiors are designed in-house. Each model offers accommodation configurations for 8-10 guests and initial renderings showcase a vivid orange and cobalt blue colour scheme throughout, toned down by natural teak decking.
The SC22 will benefit from a 65.5-square-metre main saloon with wraparound windows, a formal dining space and a lounge, while an additional 162 square metres of deck space can be enjoyed at leisure across the main deck and flybridge above. Sliding doors offering access to the side decks and foredeck are optional, as is a recessed firepit at the bow. Meanwhile, the SC24 offers over 180 square metres of deck space with an optional fold-down balcony in the owner's suite.
Other features across both models include al fresco dining on the sundeck beneath a hardtop with an integrated sunroof and an optional awning.
The 22-metre model will reach top speeds of 20 knots, with a range of 685 nautical miles at 15 knots, and power will derive from twin Volvo D13 engines of 1,000 hp. Meanwhile, SC24 can be powered by twin Volvo Penta D13 engines for a top speed of 18 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots, or quad Volvo IPS1050 engines for a top speed of 28 knots.Read More/Inside SilverYachts' first 36m SpaceCat
