About Silhouette 800 Design


SILHOUETTE 800

Upon boarding the Silhouette the innovative use of space will become immediately evident. Its unrivaled master cabin has earned its designers the distinction of being builders of some of the most desirable mega yachts in their category. The Silhouette 760 has won the South African Boating award for the best sailing craft over 10 meters. The yachts are well known in the charter market and have been extremely successful and have won numerous prestigious charter awards annually. Wherever the Silhouette goes it turns heads and is showered with accolades.

As a policy, the manufacturer only supplies vessels that are very comprehensively equipped with the latest and best equipment. This maintains the good name of the Silhouette design and protects the owner’s investment. Most of our competitors charge extra for much of what we supply as standard. Options such as a carbon fiber mast and boom, Aramid (Carbon) side stays, powered self-tailing winches, quality grade sails, motorized blinds, frameless glass shower cubicles, laminated glass window panes, a large LED TV in the saloon, lightweight carbon fiber gang planks, etc. are standard on the Silhouette. I believe the Silhouette 800 offers the best value no matter how measured; be it in price, performance, space, ease of sail handling, useful deck area, headroom, and other features such as separate laundry, workshop, machine rooms, crew quarters, and aesthetics, etc. Nevertheless to give our customers maximum flexibility we invite their input.

Much attention has been given to minimizing the weight of the vessel. Many of the walls have synthetic finishes rather than the traditional veneer-cladded walls. This reduction in weight significantly contributes to the already spectacular performance of the vessel.

The intelligent use of space has enabled the yacht to accommodate 10 guests and 6 crew in generous on-suite cabins where the luxury of space will be felt.

With the large number of guests that are able to be accommodated on the vessel and with the level of service expected on a yacht of this size and stature, the design boasts a large well-equipped galley on bridge deck level. The galley is complimented with ample refrigeration, plenty of work space, large storage cupboards, and allowing for the crew to cater to the guest's every need.

The yacht is also been laid out with the crew requirements in mind. It has been provided with generously appointed crew quarters located in the starboard forward section of the hulls with an on-suite bathroom and ample storage.  The Captain and partner have a private cabin immediately forward of the galley.

The laundry and workshop are accessed through the Captain’s cabin. The laundry is fitted with genuine commercial-grade laundry equipment. This reduces the dependency of the yacht on shoreside laundry facilities and increases the level of service available to the guests onboard.

In keeping with the designer's minimalistic and simplicity in design, a large open flybridge has been incorporated into the design where all sailing operations are performed from a central point. This allows for a reduction in the crew needed to sail the yacht and increases the safety of both the crew and guests onboard. A large electronically operated dive platform has been added off the aft dive deck to the yacht which is able to be used for lifting the tender, lounging on a deck chair with your feet in the water, or as a swimming platform. The lifting platform is raised and lowered by a simple push button switch.

The first Silhouette 800 is complete and is ready to be launched at the purchaser’s choice. Presently it is being stored in enclosed under-cover premises waiting for its new owner to sail it to exotic locations with his guests and crew accommodated in comfort and luxury.

The build time for a Silhouette 800 is normally about 18 months after the confirmed order.
