Silent-Yachts has confirmed the sale of the first three hulls of its new flagship, the Silent 80 trideck.

The Silent 80′s design and engineering are by Marco Casali and Micad. Key features include a maximum speed up to 20 knots, and nearly 970-square-foot fly deck that can be open or enclosed as a skylounge.

“We are happy that the interest in fully sustainable yachting keeps growing,” Michael Köhler, founder and CEO of Silent-Yachts, stated in a press release. “Our latest orders are another confirmation of this trend for a much greener future.”


Hull No. 1 of the Silent 80 will be an enclosed version with a master stateroom on the top deck.

Additional ensuite guest staterooms are on the lower deck, and can be outfitted with twin or double berths.

And because there’s no engine room thanks to the yacht’s solar power, additional aft space can be used for a garage. To port, the builder says, there’s enough space for a 17-foot tender with a launch system, or for an amphibious vehicle.


How is the Silent 80 built? Using vacuum-bagged resin infusion to create a lightweight carbon sandwich composite. According to the builder, this construction helps with sound and temperature insulation.
