85.3m explorer superyacht BOLD, launched by Australian shipyard Silver Yachts in 2019 to international acclaim, returned home for maintenance works earlier this year. The Espen Øino-designed superyacht was relaunched in June 2021, and Silver Yachts has shared a video of her return to the water.
Returning to the Perth-based shipyard was a natural choice for Bold, with the superyacht touring South East Asia and the South Pacific before making her way back to Australia. The Captain and Owner entrusted Bold’s maintenance period to the hard-working teams at Silver Yachts, who originally brought this innovative superyacht to the waters in 2019.
In a recent interview with Superyachts.com, former Silver Yachts naval architect Nick Stark spoke of the Australian shipyard’s specialisation in aluminium builds and its history of cutting-edge projects, of which Bold has been the flagship.
The 85.3m and 1504 GT superyacht offers a jaw-dropping variety of indulgent social spaces for her guests. Perhaps one of the most unique features is the superyacht’s Wintergarden, with a table for 18 guests. The Wintergarden is surrounded by a glass panel system which can be fully opened to offer al fresco dining. The Wintergarden is accessed via an expansive Loft Saloon, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and the combined area spans 300-square-metres.
Her large exterior deck space includes a bar and teppanyaki with ample seating, while a 400m2 of multipurpose teak main deck carries an enticing arsenal of water toys and tenders.
Currently in construction at Silver Yachts is hull 6, Silver Loft II, based on the successful platform of BOLD. We look forward to following the progress of yet another outstanding superyacht to be built by the Western Australian shipyard.
