‘SILVIA M’ is without doubt one of the most talked about Yachts we have built in recent years. She clearly shows our commitment to customisation within a production format and she has featured in the last Circumnavigator Magazine as a truly wonderful example of bespoke craftsmanship. She has been owned and cruised by her owner who has a full time crew aboard her. One of her excellent features is that she can accommodate crew without infringing on the guest areas, but at the same time her systems and design lend her to shorthanded cruising.
The overall interior style was to blend the look of a traditional Gentleman’s cruiser but with a modern contemporary feel. Her main deck and lower deck use Satin Mahogany, Italian marble and intricate paneling to achieve this feel. On the upper pilot house level, this has been left very much as ‘standard’ finish. Satin teak and a simple styling give this ‘workplace’ a professional feel.
The galley is unique to the 76’s in that it has been separated from the main saloon area, making it into a fully professional galley, clean and very appealing for both professional chef and owner.
Sylvia M was coded for charter and last year had a very successful summer of chartering, when the owner was not cruising her.
Accommodation consisted of Master cabin and two double guest cabins, whilst there are 2 crew cabins in the pilothouse for 3-4 crew.
Sylvia M was build to full CE standards and is a 240V 50HZ vessel. She is MCA coded for charter.
Step aboard Sylvia M via her ‘letterbox’ hydraulic passerelle that retracts into the laserette, you are meet by a undercover stainless steel and canvas frames bimini over a beautiful teak deck cockpit area with fixed high gloss varnished table and occasional chairs. This boat is built to pamper, so as you would expect there are sinks fridges and a BBQ cleverly built in to cockpit area by the door. The boat is a full walk around with side decks on both starboard and port.
Enter the salon via the door and one is immediately coseted by the thick carpets the beautiful interior moldings and Mahogany interior detail. There is a dining table for six and owner supplied sofas and easy chairs.
Beautifully painted walls, intricate ceiling beams, rich mahogany paneling. Brass fixtures, such as the investment cast light fixtures were sourced in Italy. Built in bookcase and curved ceiling molding give the stairway to the pilothouse
The galley has been fully separated from the salon and given a very professional feel to its layout. White paneling and teak trim on the cupboards add to this and the countertops are Corian. All galley equipment is Miele with Sub Zero refrigeration. There is a fixed table in the galley with bench seating and chairs.
Continuing through the main deck you come to the owner’s stateroom again finished in the Mahogany theme. This stateroom is full hull width and gives much space and light to the cabin, forward of this cabin and approaching the bow, we have the Mater stateroom heads. Finished in ceiling high Italian marble, brass fittings and bespoke layout, this gives a high luxury feel without compromise.
LOWER DECK STATEROOMS
From the Salon area, curved stairs take you down to the guest staterooms. On this level you also have a utility area and the main engine room access. The staterooms consist of a very large double cabin and an impressive twin cabin. Both have large dedicated heads and again the style fit and finish replicates the Master cabin and Salon.
Utility Area leading to Engine room
Here we have Miele washer and drier, ironing facilities and linen storage as well as the main ships electrical panel. Fitted in white Formica it replicates the galley style. Here you have the impressive engine room door and access.
Engine room and systems
As with all Nordhavns, the engine room is, for some, the highlight of the vessel! Sylvia M has a single engine MTU Detroit Series with dry stack keel cooling and a twin disc gear box. She has an auxiliary wing engine, Lugger 668D which produces 105hp, and also has a hydraulic PTO to power up the TRAC Hydraulics that power the upgraded stabilizers TRAC 370’s and integrated Thrusters bow and stern, windlasses, anchor wash and auxiliary bilge pump. As well as the standard genset, Silvia M has a 20KW Northern Lights genset for lighter load running. The TRAC system also has the STAR feature. Stabilization at rest. To back this up she also has twin ‘Flopper Stoppers’ for stability at anchor. (Full system details on request)
From a stairwell in the Salon we go up to the business end of Sylvia M, The Pilothouse. She is fitted out in this area as the standard Nordhavn finish, using Satin Teak woods, teak and spruce floors and a simple yet classic cabinetry design. Unique to this hull we have two cabins on this level. Each with its own heads and shower. So captain and crew can be accommodated as needed, or used as overspill when more friends and family want to visit!
There are twin Stidd helm chairs finished in Green Ultra-leather and bench seating behind these chairs. Navigation lacks for nothing with as one would expect dual systems and redundancy on the Furuno NAV NET II black box systems. (full details on request)
Exit the pilothouse using the split Dutch doors port or stbd and you are lead safely via the Portuguese bridge to the bow area. On the foredeck we have twin RIBS:
1 Tender Novamarine, 5.20 Meters with 70 Hp, equipped for high water fishing.
1 Tender Arimar, 3.60 Meters with 15 Hp
These are launched using the Marquipt 2500 crane. There is a fuel tank and pump dedicated for filling the tenders as well as excellent stowage for ‘the toys’.
Move back up onto the Portuguese bridge via its cantilevered door and walk to the stern via the Portuguese bridge control stations port and stbd, you come to the upper deck level dining area. Here under cover of the flybridge deck extension you can relax or dine with a raised view of your surroundings.
Via the Pilothouse you can take the staircase up to the flybridge. Here you have the outside helm position with related controls and electronics as well as comfortable bench seating around a gloss varnished Teak table. There is a BBQ sink, refrigerator here and added to the back of the flybridge is a brilliant sun deck.
