Silver Yachts just proved it’s not limited to just one metallic hue.
The Australian shipyard has teamed up with Tillberg Design of Sweden to create a bold, multi-colored interior for its new 72-foot SilverCat. The semi-custom power catamaran, which is currently under construction at Silver’s facility in Asia, features a simple white exterior by naval architect Espen Øino that belies the vibrancy within.

Taking cues from Scandinavian design, the decor pairs a palette of subtle neutrals with an array of natural materials. Tillberg says this helps to create a sense of calmness throughout. Swathes of oak and marble blend seamlessly with cream carpets and walls. The elegant Scandi-chic interior is punctuated by pops of orange, blue, and white.
“Our brief was for something a little bit outside the box, and when we talk outside the box, that means not putting beige on beige—a lot of yachts play very safe by just being white and beige with a little bit of wood for accent, but SilverYachts wanted to spice it up a bit,” Tillberg’s partner and yacht director Daniel Nerhagen said in a statement. “So we went for some really strong and vibrant colors to stand out from the crowd and to offer something a little bit different.”
The studio carefully selected the accent colors so that they would stand out in the areas where the cat is set to cruise. (As the Caribbean and Mediterranean are rich in sunlight, the colors needed to be much bolder.) Cleverly, the brighter hues are reserved for furniture, artwork, and so on, which means pieces can be swapped out if they’re too loud for the owner. Speaking of the furniture, Nerhagen says that some of Øino’s shapes from the exterior are reflected in the interior. The dining table and chairs, for instance, mirror the exterior lines. Using the same design language indoors and out helps to connect all the decks.
The open-plan interior includes accommodation for up to 10 guests, as well as a sprawling main salon with wraparound windows, a formal dining space, and a lounge. The exterior decks, meanwhile, are home to multiple alfresco dining areas, plush lounges, and a fire pit.
The SilverCat is no slouch, either. Equipped with two Volvo D13 engines, the vessel has a top speed of 20 knots.
