Silver Yachts launches first 36m SpaceCat catamaran
Silver Yachts has successfully launched the first hull in its SilverCat series of luxury catamarans. The 36-metre Spacecat was constructed at the shipbuilder’s facilities on the Pearl River Delta in Guangdong Province, China.
Silver Yachts, a builder of custom, high-performance aluminum vessels, is working with leading naval architect and designer Espen Øino as a strategic partner on the SilverCat range.
The superyacht launched last month, with pictures of the launch being released this week for the first time. The yard says SpaceCat is currently undergoing sea trials, and will be delivered in August 2022. It has reportedly reached max speeds of 22 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.
The success of the market-driven 36m — which sold swiftly to an Asian client earlier this year — has prompted Silver Yachts to develop 22m and 24m SilverCat hulls.
Earlier this year, Silver Yachts appointed Denison Yachting as its dealer for the SilverCat range of luxury catamarans in the Americas and the Caribbean.
