The new Silent 60 is a step forward from the range's bestselling Silent 55. This new model is improved where needed, longer, wider and more voluminous. She also has a new high performance hull form that is optimized with a comprehensive CFD study, with a longer waterline and reverse bows. Her exterior design's signature details are the long window stripe at the sidewall of the hull and more window surface overall resembling the flagship Silent 80.
The storage space of this new 60-footer is much larger, she has higher headroom everywhere (up to 230 cm in the saloon) and more powerful solar panels: 42 pieces for 17 kWp compared to 30 for 10.8 kWp of the Silent 55. The yacht uses Silent electric propulsion for unlimited range with no noise or fumes and minimal vibration, she is fully self-sufficient. Because of that, the operational costs of the vessels are substantially lower compared to power yachts using more traditional propulsion systems.
The new model is also capable of carrying a much larger tender - up to 4 meters length. "The Silent 55 is limited to 3.3-meter long tender, " noted Michael Köhler.
At the same time, the Silent 60 has a smaller draft, just under 1 meter, which allows her to reach shallower bays, which may be crucial for areas like the Caribbean and South East Asia.
The Silent 60 is available with several layouts ranging from three to six staterooms with a maximum of six bathrooms. All staterooms offer double or twin berths, and all heads include a separate shower. There is a vast saloon with wide windows on the main deck, a spacious flybridge with another helm station, sitting area and sunbeds. The yacht features large outside areas in the aft and bow to enjoy the nature and keep gusts in close contact with the sea.
"By adding extra five feet to the length of the hull, we were able to significantly expand the social space on board", comments Michael Köhler.
The Silent 60 is equipped with the company's aeration system, which provides cool and fresh air to all accommodations, heads, and in the saloon. The airflow in each space is individually adjustable and can be used when the weather conditions require the windows to be closed. In addition, a reverse-cycle heat-pump system heats the interior when necessary, ensuring all-season comfort. The insulated hull ensures efficient achievement of desired on board temperatures.
Just like the predecessor, the Silent 60 is designed to range everywhere as a true ocean-going cruising yacht. The Silent 60 can cruise efficiently for up to 100 miles a day for weeks. At the same time, the arrangement of the components enables the system to power all on board systems without need of fuel to power a generator.
In addition to the ergonomics of the living spaces, the Silent 60 - thanks to her advanced conveniences - offers a comfort level that sparks peace of mind. A water-maker powered by the solar-electric system, produces enough water to supply a full six-stateroom company with reasonable rate of consumption. All on board appliances operate on the 220/110-volt system. The galley has refrigerator and freezer space to sustain the crew and an efficient induction cooktop, precluding the need for carrying gas.
This is self sufficient living while exploring at its best.
