SILENTWORLD is a flawless example of craftsmanship and elegance from world-class motor yacht manufacturer, Oassive. With accommodation for up to 12 guests in 6 cabins and 8 crew, the yacht offers an ideal combination of relaxation, entertainment and adventure. Built in 2006, SILENTWORLD is a platform that enables the crew to bring the guests dreams past expectations
In 2018 we won the inaugural Australian Voyage of the year award for a charter on the Great Barrier Reef and then in 2019 we were a finalist in the Boat International Voyage of the Year for a subsequent charter around the top end of Australia. Safe to say we like to make the experiences onboard memorable.

We focus on bringing a sense of team spirit on board. The crew we have are a vital component to provide guests with an experience that exceeds expectations. One of our favourite memories was around Vanuatu: diving in remote locations, and sailing past volcanic islands with Lava flowing into the water (a genuinely humbling experience).

Currently in French Polynesia which has stolen our sailor’s hearts, with its combination of welcoming embrace, natural beauty and mana (spirit). Such incredible locations offer the capacity to create an emotional connection between the guest’s vacation and the cultural and physical identity of the region.
We love creating itineraries for guests, taking them to areas that will leave memories for a lifetime, and we encourage our crew to do the same. “Providing experiences beyond expectations in a marine environment is what we have found as a calling and bringing that to fruition is the reward”

From some of our Previous charter guests on board SILENTWORLD:

“Thank you for the passion, knowledge and guidance throughout this wonderful Australian adventure – you are truly a gift of the sea.”

“Where do we begin? – spectacular anchorages & experiences BUT this crew is off the charts when it came to taking such great care of us all. Captain Michael’s respect, love & care for his crew, vessel & the ocean itself was incredible to be a part of & witness. He has made sure that his crew will be the oceans best friend.”
