Solar Powered Silent Yachts Join The NZ Boat Sales Family

Solar powered Silent Yachts join the NZ Boat Sales family

SILENT YACHTS, presenting the first and only ocean-going production catamarans in the world that are fully solar sustainable and powered by solar energy. Pure solar-powered luxury.

Conventional motor yachts are powered by diesel or gas engines. Additionally they have a generator on board to supply all household appliances. Depending on the size of the yacht, two or three diesel engines are working for propulsion and household. On sailing yachts, 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 noisy diesel engine is operated to provide the energy needed on the boat.

Most yachts are using gas for cooking, the open flame heats up the interior of the yacht and cause an imminent threat. On many yachts the consumables like water and energy are managed 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 and drinking. Larger yachts operate water makers, air conditioning and generators. They do not need to go to a marina, but the use of a combustion engine is inevitably combined with noise, exhausts and vibrations as well as oily films in the water: not the nicest experience in an otherwise quiet bay

A conventionally powered boat with diesel engine propulsion has a range of 300 to 500 nautical miles. With a sail the range can be extended, but only when the wind is coming from the right direction and in matching force.

SILENT YACHTS offers you a completely new experience of nature and water sports, without noise or exhausts.

We have developed a modular and scalable system that reduces the operation hours of diesel engines and thus the fuel consumption to close to zero. The SILENT System is simpler, needs less maintenance and costs less than any conventional fuel depending propulsion and energy supply. At the same time it grants more luxury, comfort, independence, reliability and safety.

Do you want to have a “propane-free” kitchen and more comfort while on anchor? Do you want to go for solar electric propulsion? Are you the owner of a Megayacht who wants to sleep without the noise and the vibrations of permanently running generators:

We have the solution for you. A new class of yachting is on the rise.
