The Silhouette 760 aim is to create a modern stylish production sailing mega catamaran with exceptionally attractive lines. It is intended to lavish 10 guests in sheer luxury and entertain them with a host of fun water toys. Spaciousness was given priority over maximizing the number of cabins. The catamaran platform was chosen because of its inherent stability.
The level of luxury provided by the Silhouette compares to the best hotel. Its spacious master suite is truly spectacular and is positioned at bridge deck level to give it a commanding view. It boasts a knee height king size bed, full bath room (with bath and enclosed shower), electronic blinds, walk in clothes closet, settee and office.
The four sizable guest cabins too are very enviable; any one of them out strips the master suite on many far larger sized vessels. The beds in the guest cabins are Queen sized and are at knee level. For versatility the bed in one of the cabins is able to convert into two single beds.
The yacht has fine finishes throughout and its windows have remote controlled electronic blinds. Every cabin has a flat LCD TV and a large one in the saloon that is on a TV lift to hide it from view whilst it is not in use. Throughout the yacht the head room is generous 6’ 8” minimum.
The shaded cockpit is able to be enclosed with awnings during inclement weather. As an added attraction the yacht has a large fly bridge that presents panoramic views of its surroundings. All sailing operations are conducted from this area and it provides the crew with a good vantage point. The fly bridge has a mini bar and ample padded seating for guest comfort. The aft end of the bridge deck has hoisting tackle to raise the tender out of the water and eliminate the need for davits.
The steps in the wide transoms are attractively fanned to provide free movement between the water and cockpit. To make disembarking from a tender easy the inboard sides of the transoms are sculptured to form a tender dock. The lowest step is large enough to accommodate a number of people standing and it is contoured to receive the swim ladder when it is not in use.
Aft of the cockpit is a shaded swim platform with storage lockers for the life raft and small water toys. For SCUBA divers the area will be convenient o which to assemble their equipment and enter the water. Immediately forward of the transoms are storage lockers that are able to house 12 SCUBA tanks per side.
In the starboard bow there is a separate laundry with a commercial washing machine and clothes drier. It is also a good space in which to house a dive compressor.
To attract good staff the crew quarters are enviable and private. The captain’s cabin has a lofted bed and finishes in keeping with the rest of the yacht. It also has an office space for him to do his paper work in privacy. The facilities at the crew’s disposal have been given importance to enable them to maintain the yacht in the good order, to prepare top class cuisine, and to offer the level of service that is expected of them.
The Silhouette 760 is an enviable prestige private luxury yacht with a master suite that stands out against those found on mega power boats. In the Caribbean the yacht has proved to be one of the most successful and popular charter vessels in the region without having to rearrange its interior.
