Silent-Yachts has sold three units of yacht Silent 80 Tri-Deck, a 24.3-metre solar electric catamaran. The sale of Silent Yachts’ flagship model demonstrates the “confirmation of this trend for a much greener future” in the yachting industry, according to the founder and CEO of Silent-Yachts, Michael Köhler.Photo: Silent YachtsThe Silent 80 Tri-deck expands on the previous flagship model the Silent 80. The new flagship is designed and engineered by Marco Casali and MICAD and is the company’s most spacious solar catamaran thus far, though the yard has indicated design plans are in progress for a new, bigger Silent model.Photo: Silent YachtsPhoto: Silent YachtsOne of the flagship’s most notable features is the option for either a closed sky lounge or an open 90 square-metre fly deck on the yacht’s top deck. Of the three sold units, both open and closed options have been commissioned. Inside, her main deck features a large saloon equipped with a 10.95-metre beam.
