Silent-Yachts has restructured to emerge stronger under new ownership. With a new management team in place and access to fresh funding, there is a robust and solid growth strategy in place that covers the next five years.

New majority owner Michael Said is an American-German investor who is also a client of Silent-Yachts, with a Silent 62 3-Deck in build now. Through his acquisition vehicle Helios Yacht Investments GmbH, he has taken control of all the assets formerly belonging to Silent-Yachts, including the intellectual property behind the yachts’ innovative design, and the shipyard Silent Italia in Fano.

New Silent Drivetrain

Our latest Silent 62 launches are equipped with the next generation of what was already the most advanced and reliable solar-electric drivetrain available on the market. In this chapter we will introduce you to the upgrades and advantages.

The fundamental basics of our Silent Drivetrain date back to the Solarwave 46 prototype in 2009. Ever since then, our team has been making consistent changes towards the system to further improve performance and efficiency. Our latest generation Silent Drivetrain makes significant changes towards the core components in order to bring it to the next level, while maintaining the high levels of safety already provided by previous Silent Drivetrains.
