SilverYachts and BIC Marine are proud to announce the launch of their joint partnership that commenced on 28 January 2021, bringing together a pioneer of advanced, eco-fuel efficient, and award-winning vessels in SilverYachts and a high-growth, entrepreneurial strategic and finance partner in BIC Marine. BIC Marine as the newest venture of the BIC Group, a Southeast-Asia and abased conglomerate active in financial services, real estate, and new energy economy is excited for the opportunity in becoming a strategic partner with SilverYachts.
Mr. Yim Leak, BIC Group’s chairman, and an enthusiastic yachtsman, announced that “BIC is looking forward to our strategic partnership with SilverYachts and are confident that this is but the first step of a prosperous and exciting relationship going forward”. For SilverYachts, the partnership means first and foremost building on the success of its Silver Loft Hull 005 (BOLD), with an exciting yet subtle evolution to the original Silver Loft taking shape in the form of Hull 006 (the 85 metre Project Silver World Explorer), due for delivery in the near future.
Jointly, SilverYachts and BIC Marine will work together to expand SilverYachts’ ever-increasing global brand recognition to focus on Southeast-Asia in particular, BIC Marine’s home market. As a new marketing partner for the ASEAN region, focusing on Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, and Vietnam, BIC Marine is well primed to bring the SilverYacht proposition to an exciting, high-growth region to the yachting world. Of particular interest is the new SpaceCat, an advanced, high-capability
and flexibility 35 metre vessel currently under build and which is slated to be built as a series vessel ideally suited to the region. With its various business hubs spread across the region, whether in Bangkok, Phuket, Phnom Penh, or Sihanoukville, BIC Marine will add significant regional coverage and local representation to SilverYachts’ expanding portfolio of cutting-edge, high performance and efficient vessels.
