MY Silver Wind Superyacht Stories 1200x800

The 43.6 metre Silver Wind is the perfect choice for an action-packed superyacht charter in the Mediterranean. With a top speed of 26 knots, a fantastic array of water toys and a shallow draught allowing for seamless access to secluded bays and world-class swimming spots, the yacht’s charter guests are treated to the ultimate experience from the east to the western Mediterranean.

Built in 2014 by the Italian shipyard ISA, Silver Wind combines the very best of Italian yacht building and design. Her luxurious interior welcomes each guest to a relaxed yet sophisticated environment designed by Nuvolari Lenard-one of the hottest superyacht design studios rising in the past decade. Turning heads in every port, her sleek exterior lines come from the drawing boards of Andrea Vallicelli and that delicious dose of Italian style is combined with a need for speed. Silver Wind certainly lives up to her reputation as one of the fastest 40+ metre yachts on the charter market.

For those looking for a charter experience cruising from port to port and jumping to and from the best lunch spots, she most definitely delivers. But it's not just the impressive speeds and stylish design that makes her an ideal yacht for Mediterranean cruising, it’s also the expert service of the experienced superyacht crew. The dedicated crew of eight is led by Captain Tora Ehrlich who together provide one-of-a-kind charter experiences that are tailor-made to suit every itinerary.

From the Corden Bleu-trained chef serving up guests favourite dishes to the experienced sportsmen and women that ensure guests get out on the water and take advantage of Silver Wind’s massive array of water toys, each and every crew member ensures an exemplary experience on board. We talk to Captain Tora Ehrlich to find out what makes a superyacht charter experience on board Silver Wind an unforgettable one.

What makes Silver Wind the perfect charter yacht?

We are a very happy, passionate crew who take pride in our jobs, and this really shows in each of our charters. With fabulous food and flawless service, we create a relaxed atmosphere onboard that’s tailored to the client's preferences. As an experienced crew, we also understand that summer holidays are one of the few precious moments of downtime for every guest. Charter clients never have to waste a moment of their holiday. She's a very fast yacht and, combined with the entire crew's unparalleled knowledge of our cruising grounds, our guests can go from a hidden cove outside Saint Tropez to lunch in Monaco's glamorous Port Hercules quickly and in style. Every moment is one that is cherished, and the shallow draught of the boat also allows us to anchor at the best locations and swim spots, so our guests have an extra advantage!

What kind of charter experience can clients expect?

With the sleek, white interiors of Silver Wind, guests can enjoy a relaxed and elegant environment. We welcome a wide range of clients on board throughout winter and summer, but our usual clientele is a more relaxed, fun group or a family. Due to her fast design and performance, a charter holiday on board is better suited to clients who enjoy heading to beautiful lunch spots and then heading back into port in the evenings to enjoy a night exploring a new town.

How are the boat and the crew prepared to accommodate young guests?

Our deck crew are very talented and passionate about watersports - our younger guests always appreciate being able to get out on the water and have some fun during their charter holiday. Understanding the ocean and having the top watersports techniques and tips, the crew can make it a fun, active holiday for teenagers and younger children alike. We've also got a lot of great living spaces that can accommodate relaxed family lunches, like the large oval seating area on the fly bridge.

What are some of the main issues clients can experience when chartering a superyacht?

We go above and beyond to ensure that our guests don't experience issues on their charter vacation! The only challenge that we do not have control over is weather-related, which can sometimes lead to a change in the desired itinerary. We continuously monitor the weather and keep clients informed as we progress, but we've always got an excellent plan B. Another worry some clients may have is with any language barriers. We have a strong, multi-national team, so if a client’s English isn't strong, usually it's no problem. Our chief stewardess spends time translating each menu, bar label and note to appropriate languages, so everyone is catered for. 

Tell us more about the toys and tenders on board Silver Wind.

She’s a fantastic charter yacht for those who are looking to make the most of days out on the water. We have a five-metre Castoldi Jet Tender which is perfect for runs from those fantastic little lunch spots. We also have a towable inflatable four-seater sofa, waterskis and wakeboards. Two of our crew members are experienced waterski and wakeboard instructors, which offers the convenience of learning a new sport in complete safety right from the yacht. Our two jet skis are the versatile SeaDoo sparks, very lightweight and nimble, and a cool addition to our toy inventory! Other watersports equipment available on board include SeaBobs, kayaks, paddle boards and kneeboards so from young children to grandparents, we have a toy that suits

How do the crew provide something different for each guest?

We are a really close team and we love going the extra mile for our guests. Small things make a difference: we like to make takeaway jars and boxes of their favourite treats they enjoyed while on board, with tailored notes accompanying. Depending on the client's preferences, we also offer an individually-tailored turn down each evening, which can include anything from notes to flowers to elaborate petal arrangements! I like to be involved with the guests and I love to offer personalised sunset lookout tours followed by picnic basket and champagne.

We have clients who have been chartering superyachts for over 20 years, and there's no greater feeling for us than these guests coming to us at the end of their charter to tell us how wonderful their experience has been. Working on board a superyacht isn't just a job, it's a lifestyle, and that's why Silver Wind’s crew are dedicated to making each and every charter a fantastic experience.
