Written by Laura Nicholls

Built as an evolution of the popular Silent 80, of which five units have already been sold, the Silent 80 Tri-Deck from Silent-Yachts will offer more space. The 24.3-metre concept is designed with an additional 90-square-metre deck.Silent 80 yacht exterior designPhoto: Silent YachtsAble to be configured to accommodate a sky lounge or owner’s deck with large private suite and terrace, the additional deck accompanies the main-deck saloon, galley, lounge and dining area, plus up to six guest staterooms on the lower deck.   Silent 80 yacht exterior designPhoto: Silent YachtsThe Silent 80 Tri-Deck forms part of the range of the world’s first oceangoing solar-electric production catamarans designed by exterior designer Marco Casali. With prices starting at €4,920,000 depending on the layout, owners and their guests can enjoy the yacht’s silent electric propulsion, which is able to achieve unlimited range with no noise, fumes or vibration.

The Silent 80 Tri-Deck uses maximum power point tracking (MPPT) solar charge regulators and the same lithium batteries as used by Tesla, which provide capacity for all-night cruising, while a 20-kVA inverter provides power for all household appliances.  Silent 80 yacht interior designPhoto: Silent YachtsSilent 80 yacht exterior designPhoto: Silent Yachts“We are happy that our clients like the flagship 80-footer, but we thought we can make another step forward with the new model,” said Michael Köhler, Founder and CEO of Silent-Yachts. “The additional sky lounge is a very convenient space and helps stretch out the period of using the boat. The extra space on top extends social areas onboard while offering new opportunities in terms of layout.”  Silent 80 yacht exterior designPhoto: Silent YachtsBy eliminating the need for an engine room, the yacht benefits from the largest garage in the category which can house a 4.5-metre tender, an amphibious car and a gyrocopter on floats. Built using vacuum-bagged resin infusion and with lightweight interior décor made from recyclable materials, the Silent 80 Tri-Deck boasts a light displacement of 60 tons.Silent 80 yacht exterior designPhoto: Silent Yachts
