SILENT YACHTS Australia – SILENT 80 The Tesla of boats

Fun fact before we charge straight into the weekend:
Depending on the configuration, the SILENT 80 can store the energy equivalence of up to more than 5 Tesla Model S!

Silent Yachts, which has been described as the “Tesla of the seas”, is ramping up production of its electric catamarans.

The company now has 10 boats under construction and they are increasing production capacity to be able to produce dozens of electric boats a year.

That may not sound like a lot, but boat production can be a slow process and is difficult to deploy at scale for larger vessels like the Silent Yachts electric catamarans.

They have been delivering electric catamarans for years and now have a full line up of three boats: 55-ft, 60-ft, and 80-ft.

These boats are all powered by solar power and batteries.

Depending on the size, they can produce between 10 and 26 kW of solar power and be equipped with 150 to 532 kWh of battery capacity.

The latter is the equivalent in energy capacity of more than 5 Tesla Model S sedans.

Silent Yachts can be solely powered by clean energy with the solar panels and batteries feeding electric motors or use a generator depending on your type of use.

Here the company produced a video showing a typical use case of a Silent Yacht:

Silent Yachts has now delivered 11 electric yachts that are currently on the water, but they are seeing strong demand and ramping up production.

Plugboats reports:

“To meet demand, Silent-Yachts has new shipyards in Thailand and Italy. The Asian yard, about 220 km from Bangkok, is led by Swiss entrepreneur Philippe Guénat and is the largest privately-owned shipyard in South East Asia. In Fano, Italy, a series of Silent 60s are now under construction and a second line is being set up to provide capacity for building 15 Silent 60s a year.”

On top of those 15 Silent 60s, the company is currently building one Silent 55, its entry-level boat, and 4 Silent 80s, its biggest vessel.

SILENT YACHTS Australia – Elegant Minimalism

The SILENT 60 will be our first model to introduce our updated exterior design language, which we titled as “elegant minimalism”.
Along the side of the CFD optimized hull you can see our signature stripe.
It creates a distinctive appearance and will make a lasting impression, making sure nextgen yachting keeps turning heads along the way.
