Silent 62 3-Deck to debut at Cannes
An extended, full-flybridge version of the Silent 60, the 62 3-deck will have its official premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 7-12.
Silent-Yachts will debut its 62 3-Deck solar-electric catamaran at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival along with the Front Deck version of the model it’s based on, the Silent 60, first launched in 2021. The 62 3-Deck has a high-performance hull shape featuring a reverse bow and longer waterline, while the long window stripe are among signature exterior details.
The Silent 62 3-Deck is based on the same platform as the 60, but is extended 2ft aft and is the builder’s first model to feature a full flybridge, offering 50sqm on the top deck instead of the 21sqm retractable flybridge on the standard 60. The 62 3-Deck flybridge is available in Open or Closed versions, with the former showing at Cannes and the latter available as a master suite.
The flybridge includes a helm, bar, galley, dining table and seating for 10-12 people. The main deck includes a 50sqm saloon, while the hulls feature four en-suite guest cabins and a crew cabin. The optional hydraulic stern platform doubles up as a swim platform and can accommodate the electric Silent Tender 400 or another tender up to 4.2m. Additional water toys, kayaks, SUPs and e-bikes can be stowed in the bridge deck.
Offering unlimited range with no noise, fumes or vibrations, the self-sufficient yacht is fitted with 42 solar panels achieving up to 17kWp and features the same powertrain as the 60, including two 340kW e-motors, a 150 kW diesel generator and 286kWh water-cooled lithium battery.
Powered by the sun, the 62 3-deck can cruise up to about 100 miles per day, while its operational costs are significantly lower compared to conventional motor yachts. All systems can be powered without the generator, which acts as a back-up to recharge batteries if higher speeds are required for prolonged periods or when weather conditions are unfavourable for several days.
High-tech carbon fibre is used to reduce the yacht’s overall weight, while its draft of just slightly above 1m allows it to access shallow bays with ease, making her the ideal for cruising in the Caribbean and Southeast Asia. Asiamarine represents Silent-Yachts in Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.
