After making a major splash in the marine world earlier this year, Silent Yachts has revealed a tri-deck version of its 24 metre flagship Silent 80 series. The new yacht uses silent electric propulsion for unlimited range with no noise, fumes or vibration, she is self-sufficient and virtually maintenance-free.
The advanced model of the flagship is the builder’s “most spacious model to date” the triple-decker boasts an epic panoramic air-conditioned saloon on the flybridge—a feature which sets it apart from its predecessor. The layout can be arranged with either a sweeping skylounge on the top deck or an expansive 295-square-foot fly deck—whatever the owner desires.
“The additional sky lounge is a very convenient space and helps stretch out the period of using the boat. The extra space on top extends social areas on board, while offering new opportunities in terms of layout,” said Michael Köhler, Founder and CEO of Silent Yachts.
The versatile vessel can accommodate three different propulsion systems: cruiser, hybrid-power and e-power. If you opt for the e-power version, the catamaran is fitted with a pair of electric engines (80 kW each in a standard version, and up to 250 kW each in the most advanced version). It is capable of travelling at 6-7 knots in complete silence with unlimited range passing 100 nautical miles a day. A hybrid power version is also available, which includes the combination of a pair of 220 HP motors with two 14 kW diesel engines.
The Silent 80 was designed inside and out by Marco Casali of Too Design. Naval architecture meanwhile has been undertaken by MICAD. The concept was created by Köhler.
Designer Marco Casali said: “Solar power is about square metres, so we need to dedicate as much surface to the solar panels as possible, while keeping the overall balance in shape. What I tried to achieve is an interesting Italian design, sophisticated and refined.” The stealth cruiser has a flybridge that is fitted with 70 solar panels which generate 26kWp of power. The green energy is then stored in lithium batteries, which allow for all-night, dead quiet, cruising.
Silent 80 (starting from $6.53 million) is available in a number of layout versions and can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests across five cabins. Silent 80 is currently under construction in Ancona, Italy, and five models have already been snapped up by prospective buyers. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
