Soel stands for conscious yachting

Soel Yachts unveils the 62-foot solar electric yacht, Soel Senses 62.

07 April 2022


The new 18.8-metre solar-powered yacht has been designed and engineered for a luxurious and environmentally conscious aquatic lifestyle.

The Soel Senses 62 allows you to discover the new sustainable way of yachting; zero emissions combined with the familiar style and comfort of luxury boating.

This state-of-the-art multihull yacht is equipped with cutting edge technologies that ensure extensive range and high efficiency, resulting in decreased maintenance and ownership costs. Limited noise distractions mean the Soel Senses 62 doesn’t disturb marine life either.


Bright and open

Located on the main deck, the open-plan saloon is the heart of the yacht, functioning as the central hub of Soel Senses 62 and housing the lounge and galley, which offer panoramic views of the ocean. The saloon connects to the exterior aft deck (cockpit) via a full-beam glass sliding door, creating a seamless finish.


Despite its multifunctional nature, the layout of the saloon ensures a natural separation between the forward-facing steering and manoeuvring areas and the aft-facing lounge and dining area.

The cockpit offers a shaded dining and lounge area complete with a barbecue setup and day head. Steps down to the swim platform provide easy access to the water as well as the toy locker. An optional hydraulic swim platform is offered to enhance sea access further.

In addition to her generous aft deck, the yacht presents a forward-facing deck with recessed lounge area, ideal for sunset cruises.

A private sunbathing area and covered fly-bridge can be found on the sun deck.

Soel Yachts introduces an alternative option with an enclosed flybridge for use as an owner’s cabin, living room or other customer-specific layouts.

The yacht can accommodate up to nine guests in two VIP guest cabins, a spacious owner’s cabin and a kids’ cabin. Up to three crew members can be accommodated in a crew cabin with private access.

Various lounges, two dining areas, an office desk area and an open galley with bar provide plenty of space for group and private activities.

Keep it cool with zero emissions

The yacht’s integrated solar roof generates 17.6 kWp of solar energy, equivalent to up to 50 kWh, allowing her owners to cruise off the grid. Soel Yachts’ proprietary active cooling system for solar panels increases energy harvest by 15 to 20 percent, a unique and industry-leading innovation.

The Soel Senses 62 is offered in two propulsion systems: Cruise and Power. The Cruise system offers two 100 kW electric motors, 282 kWh of lithium battery capacity and a 100 kW DC generator set.

This enables the yacht to reach cruising speeds of 8 knots and a top speed of 10 knots.

The Power system offers two 200 kW electric motors in combination with 424 kWh of lithium battery capacity and a 150 kW DC generator set. This allows the yacht to reach cruising speeds of 10 knots and a top speed of 14 knots.

Both options ensure efficient long-range cruising at an astounding fuel economy. They feature DC fast charging capabilities as well as normal AC single and three-phase shore power charging.

Over the air system update capabilities ensure that the yacht’s systems are well maintained and future proof. The solar electric drive train system was designed in-house in collaboration with longstanding partner Naval DC.

Soel Senses 62’s CFD-optimised hull shape was specifically designed for efficient electric propulsion and cruising comfort.

The result is a vessel that reaches the superyacht comfort norm, while keeping fuel consumption and cost of ownership at a tiny fraction compared to a traditionally powered catamaran.
