Silent-Yachts has confirmed the sale of the first three units of the shipyard's most spacious solar electric catamaran to date. The Silent 80 Tri-Deck is an advanced version of the company's flagship, with a sky lounge on the top deck (closed version) or a huge 90 m² fly deck (open version), which can be designed as an “owner´s deck” with a vast private suite and 360-degree view and a terrace.Silent 80 Tri-Deck (open version)"We are happy that interest in fully sustainable yachting keeps growing," said Michael Köhler, founder and CEO of Silent-Yachts. "Our latest orders are another confirmation of this trend for a much greener future. The first Silent 80 Tri-Deck closed version will have a master cabin in the top deck, but a lounge or studio could possibly also be placed here on future units."Silent 80 Tri-Deck (closed version)Among the three Silent 80 Tri-Deck models sold, there are both closed and open versions.A max speed of up to 20 knots is possible with 2x340 kW electric motors.The interior of the Silent 80 Tri-Deck is just as customizable as on superyachts. Since Silent-Yachts’ heritage is about being green and eco-friendly, the yacht is principally decorated with lightweight and recyclable materials that respect the environment.The new Silent 80 Tri-Deck is an oceangoing solar electric catamaran that uses silent electric propulsion for unlimited range without noise or fumes and minimal vibration. It is self-sufficient and virtually maintenance-free. The catamaran is fitted with a pair of electric engines (150 kW each in a standard version and up to 340 kW each combined with highly efficient carbon propellers in the most advanced version). The new model will be able to reach up to 20 knots with the most powerful e-motor combination and reach up to 100 nautical miles a day at cruising speed without consuming any fuel.The base price of the new Silent 80 Tri-Deck is 5.51 million euro. Silent-Yachts is producing the world’s first fully solar-sustainable oceangoing production catamaran yachts. They are powered exclusively by solar energy and capable of cruising up to 100 miles per day. In 2009, founders Heike and Michael Köhler, who have spent 6,000 days cruising more than 75,000 miles all around the world, launched the Solarwave 46, the first fully self-sufficient blue-water catamaran after years of testing solar-powered propulsion, and they have been building boats ever since.

After the recent success of its TT460 flagship, the Italian shipyard is continuing to expand its ranges.The new collection includes all the models of the X range from 19 to 28 feet. The new SX200, ready to be launched in March, will join the Capoforte collection. Its traditionally elegant aesthetics and carefully designed ergonomics makes these boats particularly suitable for family relaxation, but also for recreational fishing. The collection’s name, Capoforte, brings to mind the image of a timeless, fascinating location, a solid fortress, a guiding beacon and landmark; a headland that stands against the waves; and, lastly, a sunny Mediterranean location, evoking an exclusive and truly authentic Italian elegance. The Capoforte models will feature new stylistic elements – a new logo; the cockpit will still be available in ivory/cognac color; new fabrics characterized by a braided leather effect; and four popular colors are available for the exteriors: Blue Whale, Personal White, Dark Shadow and Attack Grey. In the CX, SX and FX models, the consoles will be Sunset Gold (matt pink gold), combined with cognac-tinted details. The CX series will be available only in the high handrail version.Credits: Invictus

Benetti is launching its twenty-first Yachtmaster in a phygital version. This long-running event dedicated to captains and professionals in the superyacht industry will be held this year on February 18 and 19, offering a packed programme of opportunities to meet and exchange views, interspersed with entertainment initiatives. The common thread running through this edition will be the technology and product innovations featured on new-generation yachts, which increasingly focus on the environment. Unable to organise the usual cycle of meetings or a touring event with physical attendance, this year Benetti has developed another solution and, as a result, the 2021 edition of Yachtmaster on February 18 and 19 will be phygital (a hybrid physical and digital event). All participants, including the Benetti management team, will connect remotely to a specially created virtual platform offering unlimited access to content, videos and live streams. Benetti, RebecaThe theme running through this edition, moderated by well-known influencer David Seal, will be Next-Generation Yachts, characterised by advanced technology and design excellence. All these distinctive features of Benetti’s history and tradition take on even more importance today, encouraging the careful consideration of sustainability issues. The opening speech by Group vice president Giovanna Vitelli will start on the morning of February 18, with the Benetti management team playing host and taking guests on a virtual guided tour to visit some of the lesser known areas of the shipyard, including the Benetti Heritage Museum, as well as presenting the fleet's novelties. To examine the issues tackled by this year’s edition, plenary sessions and workshops have been organised with partners Akzonobel, Asea Power Systems, Boero, CGT, CMC Marine, Dockwise/Sevenstar, Hug Engineering, Jotun, Lusben, Radinn, Rina, Seastema, Simrad, Slam and Viraver, alternating with entertainment, team building and recreational initiatives for crews designed by Benetti to demonstrate how onboard hospitality and a caring attitude to customers and their needs and well-being are central to the Shipyard’s approach, even after the completion of construction and delivery.Benetti, MetisIn addition to the classic and eagerly awaited Owner’s Team Perspective meeting, which this year welcomes captains Frank Hesse (M/Y Metis) and Clinton White, for the first time the 2021 Yachtmaster is proposing a virtual trade show organised specifically for partners. As they would at a trade fair, guests will be able to visit virtual stands; communicate with companies in real time through chat channels, one-to-one video calls or virtual meeting rooms; and book a private appointment with all participants in the days after the event up until February 23.Founded in 1873, Benetti is the oldest Italian shipyard specializing in luxury yachts.

H2 Yacht Design and Turquoise Yachts are collaborating on Project Bora, a new 81m yacht. Turquoise has enjoyed a rich and prolific relationship with H2 Design – their most recent collaboration was the 77m Go. Bora’s interior layout will bear some similarities to Go, but her exterior styling is decidedly different. Bora has a more masculine profile with a tighter and sportier appearance.Bora features an impressive glass-surrounded swimming pool on the main deck aft and two jacuzzi’s: one in the owner’s deck for private use and on the sundeck for all guests to enjoy.The aft deck lounge area flows nearly seamlessly into the interior main saloon and formal dining areas, and five guest cabins and two VIP staterooms can be found forward of the central lobby that houses the main staircase and lift.The upper deck is the owners’ domain, with an inside lounge and al fresco dining with a bar, buffet and built in aft seating. Also included in the owners’ quarters is their own private treatment/massage room. Turquoise was established in 1997 by two leaders of the Turkish boat building industry: Proteksan Yachts Inc. and Turquoise Yacht Construction. After launching the 50m M/Y Turquoise (now called Double Trouble), 20 other megayachts ranging from 40m to 77m in length have since been delivered to an international roster of clients from the United States, United Kingdom, Europe and Russia.
