The World Oceans Day originates from the Earth Summit held by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), which took place from the 3rd until the 14th of June in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

According to the United Nations, the goal of the World Oceans Day is to “remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life. They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe”. In continuation, “the purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans”

As sailors, we could not agree more with this fantastic mission. We love the ocean just as much as you do!

When tracing back the roots of SILENT-YACHTS, you will learn that our company was founded on the vision to establish a new era of sustainable yachting by creating the most innovative and self-sufficient yachts.

Therefore, we are aware that it is our responsibility to preserve what we love, not just for one day, but 365 days all year round.
