In April 2017 we changed our brand-name to "Silent-Yachts"
as it describes the uniqueness of our yachts in a better way.
Conventional Motoryachts are powered by diesel- or gas-engines. Additionally they use to have a Generator on board to supply all household appliances.
Depending on the size of the yacht, in sum 3 or 4 diesel-engines are working for propulsion and household.
Also Sailing-Yachts need a diesel-engine. Depending on the operational area and the wind- and weather conditions, additionally to the sails a diesel-engine is needed for the propulsion of the boat. When anchored in a quiet bay, the diesel-engine ensures the energy-supply of the consumers.
Most yachts are using gas for cooking. Its open flame heats up the interior of the yacht and gas is dangerous. On many yachts the "consumables" like water and energy are configurated in a way, that enforces the skipper to visit a marina every two or three days to charge the batteries and to buy water for shower as well as for drinking.
Larger Yachts offering more luxury have watermaker, air-conditioning and generators. They do not need to got to a marina - but...
The use of a combustion-engine is inevitably combined with noise, exhausts and vibrations and oily films in the water. Is it that, what you are looking for in an otherwise quiet bay?
A conventionally powered boat has a range of 300 to 500 nautical miles under diesel-engine. With a sail the range can be extended - but only when the wind is coming from the right direction and in matching force.
Silent offers you a completely new experience of nature and watersports, silent and without exhausts.
The only footprints you are leaving are those in the sand...
Silent-Yachts has developed a system that reduces the operation-hours of diesel-engines and thus the consumption to close to zero. This system is modular and scalable. It is more simple, needs less maintenance and costs less than any conventional fuel-depending propulsion and energy-supply. It grants more luxury, comfort, independence relyability and safety.
Do you want to have a "gas-free" kitchen and more comfort while on anchor? Or do you want to go for solar-electric propulsion? Or are you the owner of a Megayacht who wants to sleep without the noise and the vibrations of permanently running generators?
Whatever you want - we have the solution for you.
