The 49.8-metre sailing yacht Silencio, listed for sale with Jonathan Barbe at Edmiston & Company, has been sold with Aquamarine introducing the buyer.
She was delivered in 2001 as the third yacht in the yard’s successful 50-metre series. Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Perini Navi, her generous accommodation sleeps up to 12 guests across five cabins, including a full-beam master suite which can be converted into two individual suites if required, with all cabins equipped with television screens and full en-suite facilities.
Up on the main deck, an open and spacious saloon is surrounded by large windows affording terrific views and has an entertainment centre with a large television screen and Kaleidescape server with over 300 movies on demand. Further forward, there is a formal dining room.
Refitted extensively in 2012, Silencio features a sleek custom interior by the award-winning designer Christian Liaigre. She boasts a light, modern on-board atmosphere thanks to the contemporary design. The refit, undertaken at Perini Navi’s Viareggio yard, created larger outdoor spaces, more al-fresco dining areas and plenty of sunbathing areas.
Under power, twin 979hp Deutz engines give Silencio a range of 3,100 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 13 knots.
As a successful charter yacht, Silencio has also made an impression across several regattas, winning the 2013 Perini Cup and the 2015 Millennium Cup.
