World debut of production oceangoing yacht with self-sufficient solar-powered propulsion

The SILENT 55 made her world debut at the 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival.

TheSILENT 55is the first and only ocean going solar-electric production catamaran in the world. The yacht uses silent electric propulsion for unlimited range with no noise or fumes and minimal vibration, she is self-sufficient and virtually maintenance-free. The catamaran is available in several power configurations to suit a variety of cruising applications.

Michael Köhler, SILENT-YACHTS CEO, said: “What this represents to the yachtsman, among other features, is the ability to cruise for many hours at normal speed and throughout the entire day and evening at reduced speed. SILENT-YACHTS sets the standard for an entirely new dynamic in yachting: No fuel. No maintenance. Pure solar-powered luxury.”

The SILENT 55 is available in five different layouts ranging from three to six staterooms with three or four heads.
