The Aegean is the ultimate place to start a round-the-world expedition. Some 6,000 islands crown the birthplace of civilisation. With a custom-built explorer like BOLD, ancient wonders of the world can be snorkeled, kayaked or - with her AW109 chopper - marvelled from the sky. Sailors who join this circumnavigation will rank among an exclusive club that includes Drake, Cook, Darwin and Dekker. Your once-in-a-lifetime voyage starts here.
Only yachts en route to the Indian Ocean enjoy the rare pleasure of Oman. The 3,000km coastline is virgin territory. Nesting turtles and spinner dolphins are more common than kite surfers or scuba crews. Here a luxury yacht like BOLD is required to provide even the barest essentials. Lawrence of Arabia may have crossed the ochre dunes of the Rub' al Khali by camel. We suggest a chopper tour in a Leonardo AW109 instead.
This may be the only opportunity to cruise the world’s most telegenic country - aboard the industry’s most awesome explorer yacht. BOLD was tailor-made for the Maldives. All seven cabins boast picture windows that gaze onto cerulean seas. That changing panorama takes in 1,000 tropical islands, guarded by 1,000 different species of fish. Just 16 guests can enjoy this incredible circumnavigation opportunity. Like much else in the Maldives, this experience is once-in-a-lifetime.
Only during a circumnavigation do superyachts venture into the Andaman Sea. The Indian flag will be hauled as BOLD’s twin 4,000hp engines drive through an aquamarine ocean that shelves to 3,000m deep. Such heady depths are the domain of humpbacks and blue whales. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow for ocean gazing, as drones track cetaceans from above.

Three colours tint the west coast of Thailand. Sapphire skies frame emerald islands, which crumble into topaz seas. BOLD’s gunmetal grey frame was custom-built to explore this aquatic paradise. Join her as she carves a 500km curve from Myanmar to Malaysia, while gorging on red chillies, banana beaches and psychedelic sunsets.
JANUARY 2021 continued...
BOLD’s futuristic Espen Øino design forms the perfect foil for Singapore. The 21st-century city-state is a global entrepot, where cloud-topping swimming pools meet timeless quartiers. Arrive hungry. In Singapore even street hawkers feature in the Michelin Guide. Tiger beer makes a fine pairing to most. Although we can reserve the prime table at 1-Altitude, Singapore’s highest bar.
Say goodbye to the boreal winter. And hello to the austral summer. BOLD was built in Australia in 2019: be on board as she sails home to the sun. Cruising a diverse 66,000km coastline requires serious muscle. Only a Lloyds of London certified vessel with 8,000hp under the hood can scour sandy Western Australia, tropical Northern Territory and the seldom-sailed Timor Sea.
This March, Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf will be a sea of sail. During the 36th America’s Cup, the world’s most luxurious yachts will chase the world’s fastest sailors. That’s because the four competing boats - representing New Zealand, Italy, Britain and the United States - are AC75s. They weren’t built to race: they were built to fly on hydrofoils at speeds of 50 knots. Rest assured, BOLD will rank as the newest and most innovative superyacht in the greatest sailing arena.
An Atlantic crossing was once a major boast. The Pacific is three times as wide. Using fuel efficient engines, BOLD will play dot-to-dot across 25,000 islands. When you’re sailing across a full third of planet earth, A-grade accommodation is a must. BOLD’s seven suites channel Nordic chic - with unrivalled Pacific Ocean views.
Few superyachts consider rounding Cape Horn. None will complete sailing’s biggest boast as stylishly as BOLD, who strides the Southern Ocean like a military cruiser. Better still, this Lloyds of London certified yacht is fitted with brand new fuel efficient engines. Her shipyard called her: “a fast world explorer vessel with a fully-fledged superyacht finish”. South of the 50th parallel, these attributes are absolutely essential.
The Caribbean is shared by over 20 nations. Some, like the British Virgin Islands or St Barths, host afternoon tea, French rosé and sailing’s global elite. Others, like Mexico and Cuba, share nearly 9,000km of coastline, where superyachts are as rare as winter jackets. One thing is guaranteed. As one of the largest, newest and most stylish yachts afloat, BOLD will turn heads in every nation.
This summer BOLD strides through the land of midnight sun. Better still, charter guests can decide her 24/7 exploration schedule. Fancy Iceland, Shetland and the Faroes, or Bergen, Bjornholm and the Baltic? Whatever her destination, this uniquely rugged superyacht has the capacity to launch choppers, track cetaceans or rev the military-grade Rupert tenders.
The Mediterranean is the world’s most popular maritime playground. Nowhere else couples the culture and cuisine of 22 disparate countries. But let’s be clear: you need a one-of-a-kind yacht to turn heads in Cannes. And if you want a Champagne picnic on a deserted island - or to host a party on 400m2 of open deck - you’d better bring BOLD. Make history as she completes her circumnavigation - after 24 months at sea.
BOLD is the fifth, largest and most recent Superyacht built by Australia’s premier luxury yacht builder SilverYachts. She harnesses the world leading fuel efficiency and technical supremacy defined by her predecessors. Working in collaboration with renowned yacht designer Espen Oeino, BOLD reveals aggressive styling, expansive interior and exterior spaces.
BOLD can accommodate up to 16 guests in 8 guest cabins, comprising the Owner’s suite, 3 VIP guest cabins and 4 double guest cabins. The Owner’s suite includes a master cabin, his and hers ensuite and a private salon with direct access to exterior decks. Her contemporary interiors include teak and oak paneling, metallic painted features combined with oak and marble floors. The interior is defined by the expansive 300m² Owner’s deck loft with floor to ceiling windows, handmade silk carpets by TaiPing, open plan arrangement and media wall. This leads onto the large wintergarden with wraparound sliding glass panels and powerful air conditioning, allowing indoor and outdoor dinner parties for the guests, or seated dinners with a large marble table for 14 guests.
