8 solar electric catamarans under construction at Silent-Yachts

 The company reported 4 new sales during the last few weeks

– One Silent 55, four Silent 60 and three Silent 80 are currently under construction

– 25 solar-electric catamarans ranging from 55 to 80 feet in length sold to date, 11 already delivered, 8 under construction 

Silent-Yachts released the latest update on the order book reporting new sales to clients. The Austrian company has eight solar-electric catamarans under construction at shipyards, including one Silent 55, four Silent 60 and three Silent 80, the 24-meter flagship model of the entire range.

“We sold 4 boats during the peak of the crisis. We believe that now people are more than ever aware of the fact, that we live in a fragile ecological system. There is a high dependency on fossil fuels, which will not be available at any time in any place” said Michael Köhler, Silent-Yachts Founder and CEO. “People are looking out for yachts that are even more independent from fossil fuels than sailing boats. Silent-Yachts hereby offer the solution, as they are being powered by the sun. The solar energy harnessed is not only used for propulsion, but also supplies energy to all household appliances on board.

All together Silent-Yachts has sold 25 solar-electric catamarans to date ranging from 55 to 80 feet in length, including eight units of the new Silent 60, which had become the bestselling model of the shipyard.

“Our shipyards are streamlined and coordinated in a highly efficient manner. This made sure they were able to deal with any unexpected challenges and continued to make significant progress regarding the production process of all our models. As a result, will deliver the first two Silent 60 to their owners before the end of the year,” added Michael Köhler.

Silent-Yachts range includes four models: Silent 55, Silent 60, Silent 80 and Silent 80 Tri-Deck. The company is developing new lines as well.
