The Austrian shipyard
Silent Yachts
has launched its first three-deck catamaran with all-electric propulsion, the Silent 62 Trideck. This is nothing new for the brand, which has been focusing heavily on this type of technology for several years already. The new model, after all, is nothing more than the evolution of the Silent 60, a hull already broken in the market, and is preparing to make her debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023. Let’s see a brief preview of the new Silent 62 Trideck.

Silent 62 Trideck

What’s new about the Silent 62 Trideck? First, it is based on three decks, as the name suggests, and is in fact a flybridge. Compared with the 60, therefore, we have additional enjoyable outdoor space above the superstructure. In terms of design, we are at a taller boat in comparison with the other, featuring inverted bows in the hulls. The waterline is elongated to give as much stability as possible to this 19-meter catamaran that reaches a remarkable height.

This catamaran offers a 50 sq. m. open fly deck with a bar, galley, dining table and seating for 10-12 people, sofas and lounge areas, as well as a command post on the fly. In practice, the flybridge is also extended aftward, almost entirely covering the cockpit below, but leaving two XL sundecks above.

Interior and cabins

On board we find a four-cabin configuration, twin and double cabins each with its own bathroom with separate shower stall.

Silent 62 Trideck – Propulsion

A very important feature of the Silent 62 is its 100% electric propulsion, which uses the 42 solar panels with peak power of 17 kWp covering the hard tops to power the two motors of 340 kW each and the 286 kWh water-cooled lithium battery. In fact, as the shipyard states, the range of the Silent 62 is essentially unlimited (again depending on sailing speed). Numbers in hand, the Silent 62 3-Deck can efficiently sail up to 100 miles a day powered by the sun, that is, at a cruising speed of about 4 knots, but without using a drop of gasoline.
