A new European office of Silent Yachts is now open in Port Adriano, Mallorca, one of the leading yacht harbours in the West Med.

A Silent 55 and Silent 64 are docked in front of the office, ready to take clients to the sea for a test drive. Later this summer the new Silent 60 with a kitewing will also arrive to Port Adriano.

“Our new base is like our second home,” said Michael Köhler, Founder and CEO of Silent Yachts.

“Mallorca and the Balearics in general are popular yachting destinations, sunny, warm, with clean azure seas and many amazing places that have to be visited on board a yacht. The new office helps us keeping our solar electric catamarans close to our clients and partners – we’re always open for a chat, visit or sea trial.”

Silent Yachts has experienced great interest from clients in the US. In order to get closer to customers, the shipyard’s exclusive US distributor Edward Sacks sets up a branch in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the yachting capital of the Western Hemisphere.

“Florida is the hot spot for the US yachting enthusiasts and we’re happy to take a seat in the region,” said Michael Köhler.

“The location is close to the site of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, it has a direct water access and a comfortable conference room for product demonstrations.”

The shipyard never stops developing and looking for innovative interesting solutions to satisfy clients’ needs.

Recently, a new version of the Silent 55 solar electric catamaran was delivered to a client from Switzerland. It is the seventh unit of the model built by Silent Yachts since 2018.

This new unit has a standard configuration but with a twist: the front exit version has an extra door in the main saloon that allows direct access to a concealed open lounge in the bow with a panoramic view, therefore, the lower deck plan is different.

Four guest cabins with private bathrooms are equally allocated between port and starboard sides of the boat, while the standard version features a full-width master suite in the front.

As for the propulsion, the new catamaran reached 18 knots during sea trials. It’s equipped with a pair of 250 kW e-motors, a 100kW diesel generator and 210 kWh lithium batteries.

Like other Silent Yachts’ models, this one can sail up to 100 nautical miles per day relying solely on the solar electric power without vibration, noise or exhausts.
