"Cruiser" - this means noiseless cruising without any emissions - with unlimited range. The sound of the waves is like music in your ears and there is nothing disturbing this feeling. No struggle with the sails, no tacking, no diesel-engine if there is no wind.
The wind-force and the wind-direction loose any significance for you, because your Solarwave and Silent is independent. You are independent. It is not anymore the wind telling you how fast you can go. On a Solaryacht it is you, who is determining the speed! You do not have to wait for the wind to come - you decide when to leave the harbour. The power of the sun is stored in powerful batteries and you can use it whenever and however you like. Isn´t this better than sailing with the wind?
A Silent can sail 24h/7d - non stop. Noiseless!
Purely solar-powered up to 10 knots!
Contrary to conventional Hybrid-Yachts, the components of a Silent are configurated for long-range solar-cruising. Only powered by solar, without need to start the diesel-engine, as the battery-capacity is calculated for more than one night of permanent cruising.
In the rare case, that the sun is not shining for several days, the range-extender is a safe and reliable power-source, that guarantees fully charged batteries. Thus a Silent is always entirely independent from the weather. As soon as the sun is shining again, the batteries will be filled up noiselessly and for free.
This saves large amounts of fuel and money, it also grants more comfort - silent cruising and unprecedented energy-supply on anchor.
Compared to a conventionally powered Motor- or Sailing-Catamaran, a Silent-Yacht has following advantages:
You have the choice!
With a Solarwave- and Silent-Power you have all the advantages of the "Cruiser" - this is silent, completely emission-free sweep along over longer distances with the E-motors. Pure solar-electric up to 10 knots fast.
Either with the "e-Power version" (the same as the "Cruiser version"), but with stronger engines (2 x 135kW) and more powerful batteries (2 x 100kWh) and therefore pure solar-electric. This allows much higher speeds, as with the "cruiser version".
Or with the "hybrid-Power version" as a parallel hybrid via powerful diesel engines with a power of 2 x 150 to 2 x 300 hp, which together with the electric motors provide for the drive. This means that top speeds of more than 20 knots can be achieved.
Depending on your mood, you can drive the E-motors at an extremely low speed or with the diesel engines in rapid driving.
"Sailor" - additionally to the advantages of the "Cruiser" the "Sailor" comes with sails.
This is noiseless cruising without any emissions - and with unlimited range.
The sound of the waves is like music in your ears and there is nothing disturbing this feeling.
Silent-Yachts are very light, much lighter than any comparable yacht. By using Epoxy-Cabon-Composite, we could reduce the weight about 50 %! This is, why a Silent is that fast!
In fair winds you are using the sails and at the same time you are charging the batteries - recuperation by the electric motors, which are working in "generating-mode". If the wind stops, or if you want to go against headwind, you continue noiseless driving by using silent electric propulsion.
A Silent does not care for the wind-direction. At day and at night - 24h/7d - non stop - always noiseless and free of emissions with the power of the wind and the sun.
In the rare case, that there is neither sun or wind for several days, the range-extender is a safe and reliable power-source, that guarantees fully charged batteries. Thus a Silent-Yacht is always entirely independent from the weather. As soon as the sun is shining again, the batteries will be filled up noiselessly and for free.
This saves large amounts of fuel and money. It also grants more comfort - silent cruising and unprecedented energy supply on anchor.
We can offer you these yachts also as a fractional ownership. For the price of a much smaller yacht you will have the comfort of a very luxury yacht. Depending on your share, you can use the yacht for 2, 4, 6 or more weeks a year.

Detailed informations about the standard equipment you find here
We offer individuality - regarding the materials (real wood veneers and high quality fabrics and leathers). And also regarding the layout. The general arrangement of each yacht can be adapted according to your needs. 5- and 6-cabin- layouts are also possible as "galley-down" - kitchen in one of the hulls and a more than 30 m² Saloon. Everything is possible!
Our Solaryachts are available in 55, 64 and 75 feet. Other sizes and commercial solarboats on request.
