SILENT Yachts X Porsche, Port Adriano
During the end of September, SILENT YACHTS partnered with Porsche, one of the most iconic global brands. Together with Porsche Baleares, they set up an exclusive event in Mallorca where the guests were able to experience the best of electric mobility, both in the water and on land. Labelled as the "Electric Experience", this fantastic event consisted of two main parts.

The first part was all about thrill and acceleration. This meant getting into the driver's seat of the Porsche Taycan and experiencing the power of its two electric motors with a combined output of more than 500 kW. With so much adrenaline available under the right foot, it was time to carve some of Mallorca´s beautiful coastal roads, before having lunch in Port de Andratx.

The second part of the "Electric Experience" consisted of getting on board of our SILENT 55 for sea trials in the afternoon. Contrary to the morning, the ambience on board of our yachts is all about deceleration and tranquility. Cruising along the coastline of Mallorca in silence enabled our guests to connect to the beauty of the Mediterranean and enjoy the gifts of nature in a sustainable manner.

The ICE 70 landed on the 5th position of the "Best boats at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021. Here is what they say about it:

"Among the sailboats, don't miss Ice 70 from Ice Yachts in the Port Canto of Cannes. Designed by Felci Yacht Design — founded by engineer Lorenzo Giovannozzi together with architect and expert sailor (he even participated in the America's Cup Challenge with "il Moro di Venezia" in 1991) Umberto Felci — Ice 70 is an elegant sailing yacht that fuses classic and modern styles. The main wood used to furnish the first Ice 70 is natural teak — an excellent combination between nautical tradition and contemporaneity.

The red thread of interiors is natural leather, covering the vertical walls and creating a visual continuity. The two living areas are diversified by tones of beige in both the seats and sofas, making the environment brighter and lighter, while the space with a TV was conceived a bit darker to create a relaxing intimacy."

ICE 33 Black Arrow Team with the trophy

The morning's early rise, the beautiful Pelér at 8.30 and a perfect and punctual start did not help, because the real antagonist of the second day of racing was the weather, or rather "the wind", which after a fleeting appearance, deserved the nickname of "great absentee" and has strongly influenced the conduct of the race with the long bonacce encountered by the fleet along the way.
In spite of the adversities, a complete race was held which saw 28 of the 49 registered boats arrive at the finish line in Portese.
Light wind, changes of direction, bonacce and then sudden gusts...it was not easy for anyone to orient themselves on this race course: also Black Arrow found itself in difficulty, overwhelmed by the opponents due to a different interpretation of the wind, but thanks to a lucky intuition (perhaps dictated also by the experience of the crew), it reached the Veronese shore and began first the recovery and then the stretch, reaching the Portese finish line alone.

Elssa ICE 67 World Tour

From March till June
On March 31st and after a helicopter flight through the most active volcanoes of Costa Rica, the ELSSA departed from the port of Quepos across the Pacific Ocean to Isla Coco, a 5 day stop before continuing the navigation to the Galapagos Islands.


In Isla Coco a total of 13 dives were made in different strategic points of the island, where the quantity and diversity of marine fauna composed mainly of rays and hammerhead sharks surprised Stefano and the team very pleasantly. On the 5th day and before leaving, they found a beautiful equatorial island, where they enjoyed their last hours in that area.


The continuation of the route to the Galapagos lasted 6 more days, from April 5th to the 11th. When they arrived, they stayed 3 days in Puerto Baquerizo Moreno until April 13, as they wanted to wait until the next day to visit the park. Although in this impasse they found many activities to do, a lot of photographic material was lost because Stefano's GoPro fell into the water without him noticing it on the last day. However, a curious anecdote also from that day is that when they arrived at the boat after dinner at a restaurant, they found a sea lion sleeping on the stern of the ship.

Turtle
The spectacular Galapagos Islands were toured in a total of 25 stops in the most beautiful and spectacular places. Costa Rica is characterized by its unique sunsets, native fauna and areas of dry lava drawing unique patterns in nature. During all the excursions and dives in Galapagos they encountered sea lions, native turtles, reptiles of all kinds and the most unusual colorful fish in the world! A real spectacle.


On Thursday the 13th to everyone's surprise Franco was bitten by a shark during his morning swim, which required 50 stitches in his foot. A totally unusual event. The next day the Elssa departed on a voyage across the Pacific to French Polynesia. A voyage that lasted until June 1st. On the second day there, in the middle of the night, the southern cross appeared in the sky, a constellation of stars that embellished the night in a very beautiful way. The crystal clear waters of French Polynesia made it possible to take particularly clear pictures of all the marine animals encountered. On June 9th the Elssa set course for Papeete, the capital of Polynesia, a 230 mile stretch to reach the destination.Front matter, or preliminaries, is the first section of a book and is usually the smallest section in terms of the number of pages.

    Silent Resorts the world's first integrated land/sea, 100% solar-powered, adventure destinations

    Imagine, instead of a beachside villa on a private island, having a floating catamaran as your abode. Not only can you sleep peacefully with the water lapping against the hulls—cats are known for their stability—but you can take the yacht off the dock during the day to visit empty coves or nearby islands.
    That fantasy could soon become reality if the concept proposed by Silent-Yachts comes to fruition. The Austrian builder of solar-powered luxury catamarans has a plan to position its 60- and 80-footers on different ends of a floating dock, with a hospitality center as its axis point. The setup would provide a measure of privacy (ideal in these Covid-19 times) but also access to the water and any landside facilities. The conceit is to use the catamarans—with their large staterooms, chef's kitchen, terrace and sundeck—as mobile villas. Because the interiors are high end and solar-powered, the villas are sustainable, but guests will enjoy paradise without compromising on luxury or the environment.

    "The new project is aligned with our strategy to deliver a sustainable, completely silent, fossil-free leisure experience to clients," said Michael Köhler, founder and CEO of Silent-Yachts. "We provide a floating luxury adventure resort, an experience like no other."

    As with the yachts, the "land and sea" resorts will run on solar power, with amenities such as a restaurant, pool, clubhouse, gym and spa, as well as hardwood timber suites on the beach. The resorts can be operational in 18 months anywhere in the world.

    ICE 62 Targa: The high-performance sailboat designed for single-handed sailing

    The Islander Magazine article about ICE 62 Targa. By Yacht Consulting Barcelona
    ICE YACHTS is about to launch a new state-of-the-art model, the ICE 62 Targa. Currently under construction at the facilities of this innovative Italian shipyard, this is a sailing yacht of excellent performance and great comfort, designed for those owners who value solo sailing. On board this technologically advanced model, everything has been designed to facilitate maneuvering, both during navigation and in port. In fact, the sails can be trimmed at the touch of a button and all have an electric furling system. Moreover, thanks to the retractable keel with hydraulic system, the draft of the boat varies from 3.80m to 2.30m, thus guaranteeing the best sailing performance while facilitating access to most marinas. In addition, to make mooring as effortless as possible, Targa has been equipped with bow and stern thrusters, as well as a retractable bow winch. Designed to provide maximum performance and total comfort and safety, the hull of the ICE 62 is made of a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass - which guarantees great structural rigidity while considerably reducing noise and vibrations - while the deck is made entirely of carbon, thus providing maximum lightness. All the structures are laminated together using a vacuum infusion process, thus eliminating all noise and giving the boat the solidity and rigidity necessary to withstand the pressures and considerable loads that can be exerted in extreme sailing conditions. Another element of technical excellence is the T-hardtop, designed to support the weight of the solar panels as well as the tension of the electrically operated mainsail carriage.
    To ensure maximum freedom of movement and to avoid having to land in port, the ICE 62 Targa is equipped with a set of 24V 1000Ah lithium batteries, 1600W solar panels and a 100l/h watermaker, which allow for long cruises in the deep blue.

    ICE 62 Targa carbon fiber details
    ICE YACHTS is about to launch an impressive new yacht. Currently under construction at the Italian yard's facilities, the ICE 62 Targa is an utterly unique high-performance, superior comfort boat, designed for anyone who cherishes solo sailing.

    Satisfying the wants and needs of the most demanding customers has always been paramount at ICE YACHTS, where they believe that being able to set sail in complete safety without having to rely on a crew is becoming the common trend among sailing yacht owners. Today, thanks to modern technology, this challenge can be easily met even on yachts of great lengths, as the new ICE 62 Targa, a performing, extremely stiff, seaworthy yacht designed for the most discerning boat owners who wish to sail single-handed.

    In fact, ICE 62 Targa was commissioned by an experienced solo sailor, who previously owned a Hanse 585 and knew exactly what he wanted when he relied on ICE YACHTS to build him his ideal single-handed sailing machine. Shipyard CEO Marco Malgara, who in his youth participated in the Paris-Dakar rally in cars he had designed himself, thus fully aware of the meaning of "reliability", and yacht designer Umberto Felci, who years ago designed and built the first Italian boat for the Mini Transat as well as numerous MiniMaxi yachts, were both personally involved in the design of this truly unique project.

    It is undoubtful that once again a true masterpiece is being crafted at ICE YACHT's facilities, where designers, engineers, laminators, and master builders combine large doses of innovation and tons of tradition to shape the dreams of the most demanding customers, like the owner of the new ICE 62 Targa, who will soon be able to sail his dream yacht.

    The ICE YACHT 54

    The ICE YACHT 54 sailing
    Tie new cruiser racer is inspired by the Ice 52, ten of which have been built. Umberto Felci's design uses a similar "scimitar-style" bow and maintains the sharp family look but improves on living space, principally by increasing freeboard by 6cm.
    Plenty of space is given to the cockpit seating and table area. The bathing platform both extends the cockpit and provides access to the tender garage, which can accommodate an inflated dinghy up to 2,8m

    A nice touch with the layout is the option to position the heads either forward or aft of the berth in the owner's forward cabin. And the island in the gallery provides a bracing point, plus extra stowage and work surface area.
    A carbon rig (available with taller mast option) sets 160m2 of upwind sail area. This, for a displacement under 13 tonnes, 5 tonnes of which is in the bulb, all points to keen performance.
    Multiple keel variations are offered including a lifting version, which can reduce draught to 2.3m. Having visited the yard and sailed the 52 and 60, I can vouch that the sandwich composite hull and decks, vacuum-infused with epoxy, makes for stiff structures.

    ICE 60 GRAN COMFORT: COMFORT, SPEED AND HIGH TECHNOLOGY

    Ice Yachts, fast cruiser, Ice 60, premium yacht, winning boat, fast sailing, carbon made, carbon hull, regatta boat, cruiser performance.
    ICE 60 Grand Comfort
    The Ice Yachts shipyard presents on the market a new product, the Ice 60 Gran Comfort, cruising and even more easy to sail version of the already fast ICE 60, which winks to owners looking for an important boat, suitable for fast cruising and especially comfortable.
    The Ice 60 Gran Comfort, developed directly by Umberto Felci's studio together with the shipyard's technical staff, promises to be a true fast cruiser of the highest quality with incredible use of space, beautiful lines and innovative interiors that put guests at the forefront.

    Derived from the powerful lines of the standard Ice 60, with a mix of contents taken from the 62′ and 70′ of the Lombard shipyard, it manages to exalt the characteristics of robustness, seaworthiness and performance that distinguish the brand and have led to its success.
    In terms of hydrodynamics, the water lines and appendages, this time with a draft of 2.90 meters, have been designed for high performance, with very respectable results that highlight the Ice 60's ability to climb into the wind at very tight angles and to plane quickly at load speeds: with the engine, it can cruise at over 10 knots.

    To guarantee this performance are added the high technologies used in the construction and the quality of a high quality craftsmanship carried out by technicians who make use of the experience acquired in many years of activity dedicated to the construction of boats that have written the history of sailing.
    The hull and deck are infusion-laminated from a female mold with carbon fiber; the structures, also in carbon, are laminated in situ and also made in infusion, becoming one with the hull and deck, which eliminates creaking and noise. The deck, in addition to the classic gluing process, is bonded to the hull, as are all the bulkheads, creating a monolithic and extremely rigid structure.

    These choices, in addition to containing the weights, give the boat a solidity and robustness capable of withstanding the repeated stresses and heavy loads it faces even in the most demanding navigation.
    The Ice 60 Gran Comfort is equipped with a double Weldox steel fin with high mechanical characteristics and a numerically controlled milled lead torpedo that offer the advantage of reducing the weight of the ballast in percentage terms and, therefore, the total displacement of the boat with the same righting moment.
    The first example of the Ice 60 Gran Comfort is currently under construction at the Ice Yachts shipyard in Salvirola, near Crema, and the first boat, for a discerning owner, will be in the water in May.

    The ICE CAT 64, a new functional and fast catamaran

    Ice Yachts, fast cruiser, Ice Cat 64, premium yacht, winning boat, fast sailing, carbon made, carbon hull, regatta boat, cruiser performance.
    ICE CAT 64, exterior view
    ICE CAT 64 represents a great step forward in the multihull design with inspirations from the automotive world. The project is the fruit of the successful collaboration between: Ice Yachts, manufacturer of the largest sailing catamarans ever built in Italy; Lucio Michelletti, in charge of interior and exterior design; Felci Yacht Design, who took care of the waterlines; and Giovanni Belgrano of Pure Design & Engineering, author of the composite structures. This great team of renowned experts took great care in delivering a yacht capable of achieving high performance whilst ensuring adequate internal volumes.
    Additionally, thanks to a clever optimization of interior and exterior spaces, the new ICE CAT 64 delivers 12% more usable space compared to her also successful big sister, the ICE CAT 67. Great study also went into the appendages, featuring thin, long rudders, which offer extreme manoeuvrability even at low speeds while minimizing drag, and long, retractile C foil daggerboards. The sail plan is significantly shifted aft, with an elongated and narrow full-battened mainsail with square top and a series of three bow sails to optimize the sail plan at different wind speed and angles. To ensure superior comfort during manoeuvring, the deck is exceptionally uncluttered and essential, with instruments and controls fitted where they are needed and plenty of space for guests and crew to move about freely. Creating a seamless connection between interiors and exteriors spaces, the cockpit is at the same level as the interior dinette and can be used in any condition in maximum safety.
    As for construction, the ICE CAT 64, like all ICE models, is made through sophisticated construction techniques of epoxy composites and vacuum infusion. Additionally, she can be fully customized, as the owner can choose between a 4 or 5 cabin layout, with the possibility of placing the galley on the lower deck, thus providing an extremely spacious lounge / dining area on the main deck that enjoys abundance of natural light courtesy of the large glazing of the coach roof.

    Delivering a cruising speed of around 15 knots and a top speed of 30, the ICE CAT 64 is a guarantee of great thrills under sail and superior comfort at anchor.

    Giorgio, a family friend, dodging the downpour on the Atlantic crossing.
    It all started in 1992 when, on the return from his first ARC (Atlantic Rally for cruisers) Stefano Buono began to pull strings to make his dream come. He even found a sponsor
    a sponsor, in 1993, to participate in the second edition of the Round the World Rally organized by Jimmy Cornell, but then the opportunity arose for him to work on a high-impact project, linked to a Nobel Prize, which led him to postpone his plans.
    This intrepid family has been sailing for ten months now aboard their new floating home. In the summer, they sailed through the Balearic and Canary archipelago to Cape Verde, from where, in November, they set off across the Atlantic and then sailed through the Caribbean until, in March, they crossed the Panama Canal on their way to the Pacific. When Stefano was asked if the reality was living up to the expectations he had surely been that creating over the years, his answer was immediate and forceful: "Everything's going great, but the most important truth is that I didn't expect anything else, as I have been sailing intensively for more than 20 years. I have already owned two boats, completed four Atlantic crossings and have spent many holidays sailing around the world, so there couldn't be any big surprises."

    SILENT 80 & LAGOON Seventy 8
    I hear a lot that electric boating is our future, but not practical yet. To check it out I compared a revolutionary Silent 80 catamaran of a new, "silent" class of yachts with a most popular power catamaran of the similar size in the market Lagoon Seventy 8.
    Buying price with "ready to sail" options is around
    4.200.000 EUR ex VAT for Lagoon Seventy 8
    4.600.000 EUR ex VAT for Silent 80
    Yearly maintenance. Normal usage for the most owners of motor yachts is about 100 hours a year.
    ⁃ Lagoon as a standard has two 510hp engines. Consumption of these engines is 100l/hour each one, or 20.000l for both engines, 100hours. What is about 35.000 EUR.
    ⁃ Silent will spend about 2000 kWt of a free solar energy. About 13 days of SunPower solar panels work.
    ⁃ Lagoon engine maintenance is about 1500 EUR for each one, 3000 EUR in total
    ⁃ Silent 80 motors will need first small maintenance after 50.000 hour
    ⁃ Water expanses depends a lot on the region. But not for Silent 80, it will produce his water itself using a free sun energy.
    Summing this, Lagoon will spend about 40.000 EUR more then Silent 80 yearly and in ten years all the difference in selling price will disappear.
    Don't forget the difference in the construction quality. Silent 80 is 15% lighter, it's vacuum infused carbon reinforced fiberglass, so stiff and light again. All Hull is thermal insulated to avoid waisting energy on cooling or heating. There are important development costs and again, this is new class of boats.
    We should of course calculate also a lifecycle of solar panels and batteries. Warranty for solar panels is 25 years, during this time they will not loose more then 7% of efficiency. For batteries warranty is 8 years. During this period they still shall have their 92 % of capacity. Lagoon engines by this time will need an expansive refit, with taking engines off the catamaran and so on.
    Silent catamarans are in production from 2009, they are passed already 100.000nm altogether, crossed an Ocean and is proved by time and nautical miles.
    And now this is a good question , are "silent" boats a future? Or this future has already happened?

    The Real Autonomy of a SILENT YACHT
    Silent Yachts, solar electric, solar catamaran, electric catamaran, electric yacht, solar yacht, zero emission, power catamaran, power yacht, motor yacht, motor catamaran
    Extraterrestrial Irradiation per day in Wh/m^2
    When you google "Disadvantages of Electric Vehicle" one of the firsts will be The Distance Range. But the great advantage of electric catamarans over cars is a huge area available for solar panels. So I decided to find out, what is the real autonomy of Silent Yachts. I know of course that before starting a production Michael Köhler sailed 15.000nm on a test version in 3 years with just 50 hours of generator usage, but how does it fit with numbers?
    I started with my favorite spot, Baleares Island, Mallorca, Ibiza, Menorca, and lovely Formentera.
    Incident Radiation Flux (the average amount of solar energy per square meter per day) for this region is 5kWh/m2 (http://www.adrase.com/en/).
    Sun Power panels (all Silent Yachts are equipped with #SunPower 370 #monocrystalline panels with 25 years warranty) efficiency is 22,7%, which gives us 1135Wh/m2 a day, or:
    - 53kWh a day (annual average) for Silent 55 + up to 210kWh battery pack
    - 75kWh for Silent 60 + up to 210kWh battery pack or
    - 115-130kWh for Silent 80 + up to 530kWh battery pack.
    Which in its turn gives us about 24 hours of sailing at 6 knots speed, or, if you make usual for cruises 4-6 hours under engine a day, you don't use your battery pack AT ALL. This means UNLIMITED RANGE, which is really impressive!
    And looking at a graph from "THE EUROPEAN SOLAR RADIATION ATLAS" we can count on 60-80% more energy than average annual for the summer holidays.
    Making this calculations I can say, YES, anyone can do it again with Silent Yachts

    SILENT YACHTS Batteries
    All SILENT YACHTS are powered by two Torqeedo electric 30-250kW engines which are powered by battery bank which, in its turn, can be charged by solar panels. So it's worse to talk about batteries.
    Going ahead, SILENT YACHTS catamarans are equipped with 120-240 kWh (28-56 module) MG Li-Ion HE battery bank with lithium rich NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) cathodes, but let´s see why.
    There are several types of batteries in the market today: Lead Acid (including GEL, AGM), Nickel Cadmium, Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni MH) and Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion).
    The first two types have very low Specific Energy (kWh/kg), 2-3 times less then Li-Ion, in other words, battery bank will be too heavy to give you some reasonable sailing autonomy, although AGM batteries are very popular in conventional sailing and powerboats where electricity consumption is relatively small.
    Nickel Metal Hydride batteries were really used in a famous GM EV1 electric car in 1996, and it gave a car significant autonomy of 280km. These batteries had a lot of advantages, they were more stable, a battery management system is simple, they also had a very high specific power (W/kg) what should give acceleration and engine pull-down, but battery bank was still heavy and today Li-Ion batteries are used in a large majority of electric vehicles.
    So Li-Ion batteries were chosen to have a light battery bank with a lot of energy, specifically, SILENT 55 has a 120kWh battery bank which weighs just 800kg.
    There are also several types of Li-ion batteries, depending mostly on a cathode material and electrolyte (Li-Polymer). Li-Ion NMC batteries together with NCA (Nicol Cobalt Aluminium) have the best Specific Energy, but NMC even more stable and thus safe. This is why SILENT YACHTS power its catamarans with Li-Ion NMC bank.
    Silent Yachts battery supplier MG ENERGY SYSTEMS is officially one of the most innovative companies in the Netherland which also won a month ago the Gamechangers Innovation Award, ex Northern Innovation Award. Congratulations guys, good job!
    So, to sum up, the formula is simple
    More Energy + Less weight + Safety = SILENT YACHTS

    We are in the Ice Yachts shipyard again and this visit promises to be especially dense and interesting. The idea is to know better a boat line from the strategy point of view, but also to know better a manufacturing process.
    The first day we made a walk around shipyards, Ice Yachts has two of them. In one Ice Yachts produces now a HULL №1 of ICE 70 and ICECAT 67 catamaran. In another, ICE 52rs, ICE 54, ICE 60 and the deck for 70ft. As I already know quite well Ice Yachts monohulls, I was more curious about ICECAT 67. The boat is in the last phase and should hit the water already in January.
    From the first look, you understand that this beast is unstoppable. It is really big, the biggest sailing cat built in Italy, and it looks very fast. The weight of the hull is just 8.5 Tonnes! (real weight, checked after lamination) But, as this boat is going around the world, it has a lot of equipment, including two 600l/h water makers, diving compressor, 3kw windlass, two Watt and Sea hydro generators, ten solar panels and a good pack of Li-Ion batteries. Although catamaran is smaller than 24m, it is certificated by RINO class society, what the client wish. And with all these upgrades it still will be below 23 Tonns, full equipped.

    New office of Yacht Consulting Barcelona opened it doors in Port Balis (Sant Andreu de Llavaneres). Here is what press tell about us:

    " Yacht Consulting Barcelona - official distributor in Spain of ICE Yachts and Silent Yachts

    · ICE Yachts produces elegant high-performance cruiser/racing sailing yachts up to 82 feet in Italy.
    · Silent Yachts is an Austrian shipyard, a pioneer in the construction of electric-powered catamarans.

    In the Port Balis, in the province of Barcelona, a new nautical company has just opened its doors, Yacht Consulting Barcelona, official distributor in Spain of two shipyards that are reaping international success: the Austrian Silent Yachts, manufacturer of the nautical "Telsa" - ocean-going catamarans that have highly efficient solar panels for their propulsion - and the Italian ICE Yachts, producer of cruiser-performance sailboats from 52 to 82 feets, combining high performance and maximum comfort.

    In December 2019 the first ICE 62 was sold in Spain to sail the waters of Barcelona, while another model in the range, the ICE 52rs, is currently under construction and will be delivered in Valencia for summer 2020. Among the many successes obtained by the yachts of this Italian shipyard, we highlight three first places of the ICE 52rs Prima Vista in the last Rolex Middle Sea Race, in the Coastal, ORC 2 and IRC 3 categories.

    Winners again!

    The 15th Palermo-Montecarlo was a particularly challenging edition due to the conditions and exceptional heat that kept tacticians on their toes from start to finish.
    Primavista Lauria, the Circolo Canottieri Roggero di Lauria boat, was overall winner in corrected time, despite finishing 7th in real time. It is the fifth time the ICE 52 has won this contest, a world class team that included Sandro Montefusco, Matteo Ivaldi, Andrea Caracci, Sicilian Giuseppe Leonardi and Mario Noto pulling off a tactically perfect race.
