Charter Focus: Step Onboard 85m Silver Yachts' BOLD
Silver Yachts’ 85m flagship BOLD is an emblem of modern-day yachting. Adventurous enough to inspire wanderlust amongst the most seasoned of charter guests, we caught up with BOLD on her world tour as travel restrictions continue to ease, bringing readers a tantalising taste of the charter experience onboard one of this century’s most iconic superyachts...
With a naval-inspired exterior, penned by industry great Espen Oeino, BOLD’s formidable looks cast an equally striking impression in the shallows of the Bahamas as against the rugged cliffs of the Med. Paired with Silver Yachts’ signature technical prowess, BOLD’s remarkably low draft of 2.8m and long range of 7000 nautical miles make her a true go-anywhere explorer.
Yet BOLD’s rugged exterior belies a light, modern and luxurious space within. Appointed by Sabrina Monte Carlo, the yacht’s interiors are clean and crisp; large windows and wide, open spaces give a feeling of even more volume throughout. Teak and oak panelling is seamlessly coupled with metallic painted features and oak and marble floors. BOLD’s expansive upper deck loft with floor-to-ceiling windows and open-plan arrangement is a highlight of her various socialising spaces, leading out into a large winter garden with wrap-around sliding glass panels and air conditioning to embrace all weather conditions.The entertaining deck, immediately above, continues the theme of expansion and openness with glass-backed serveries and sliding glass doors to enclose the marble dining table to seat 16.
Although her open-plan layout is undoubtedly a key element of BOLD’s design ethos, the yacht is not without her intimate relaxation spaces. The sun deck retreat offers guests an eight-person Jacuzzi and lounges, split in half to offer a large settee aft behind windbreak glass and protected by the overhead mast deck. Aft of the settee is another open deck with more outdoor seating and a feature centrepiece.
There are no bounds to the possibilities for adventure during a charter onboard the aptly-named BOLD. Her certified helideck on the vast aft main deck lends itself perfectly to activities such as heli-skiing, while an 8 ton aft deck crane allows the swift launch and retrieval of her vast array of tenders and toys. This highly adaptable space can then be reconfigured into a party deck by night, with added shelter options from a large shade supported by the crane.
Comprising eight guest cabins including a dedicated Owner’s suite, three VIP and four guest cabins, BOLD’s layout is versatile and well-suited to all types of charter groups. Her luxurious Owner’s suite is fully equipped with a his and hers ensuite and private salon with direct access to the exterior decks. Set to headline as one of the largest and most critically acclaimed superyachts of this year’s Monaco Yacht Show, BOLD’s remaining summer itinerary will see her grace the shores of Provence Coast, amongst other West Mediterranean hotspots. She will then make her way to the warmer waters of the Bahamas and Caribbean for the winter season.
