The Award-Winning Traveler
In November of 2019, the SILENT 55 won the “Best of Boats Award” in the category “Best for Travel”. This specific category is defined as “suitable for long distance travels with all amenities to live on board permanently, adapted for both inland waters and the tough conditions at sea”. Generally, she can easily be handled by two people, making the SILENT 55 ideal for families cruising with or without additional crew.
CRUISER - 2×30 kW
The ideal entry into the world of solar powered noiseless cruising. 2 electric motors allow you to seamlessly glide towards the horizon providing high levels of comfort, making this option suitable for long term economic cruising. Furthermore, the solar-electric drivetrain features unprecedented levels of reliability and security with almost zero maintenance work needed.
E-POWER - 2×250 kW
It offers more powerful electric motors, a more powerful generator and a battery bank with increased capacity. These upgrades result in an increased top speed which can be sustained for a certain period of time. As a result, “E-Power” is a perfect blend of sustaining economic solar-powered cruising capabilities with higher performance reserves whenever needed.
HYBRID-POWER - 2×220 HP + 2×14 kW
With the “Hybrid Power” version, a hybrid of powerful diesel engines together with the electric motors achieve top speeds of 20+ knots.
SILENT-YACHTS offers the option of a fully automatic towing kite. It flies at altitudes between 100m and 150m where winds are far stronger than at the level of the vessel. At those altitudes it has a dynamic flight pattern, which resembles the shape of a figure 8. For this reason, the kite generates up to 20 times more power per square meter compared to a conventional sail.
The added convenience of a sail perfectly complements the noiseless cruising experience. It gives you the ability to alternatively swap between using the sails in fair winds or switching to electric propulsion whenever there is no wind or you are facing headwinds. This further increases your independence from external circumstances while working hand in hand with nature towards your advantage.
