What was the purpose of the silent yacht?

  • SILENT-YACHTS was founded on the dream of eliminating the major downfalls of yachting as well as the disastrous effects on your wallet and the environment without sacrificing the slightest bit of luxury. The future of luxury yachting is individualistic, noiseless, self-sufficient and honouring nature and environment.

What is silent-yachts?

  • Gernot Apfelstedt from Boote magazine, Germany “SILENT-YACHTS is an unique, wonderful project that illustrates the opportunities and perspectives of solar and energy-independent mobility. Full batteries instead of empty fuel tank at the end of a journey – with all the fun and comfort for free!”

Generally speaking though, it's not supposed to be silent. It's from the Dutch, and the ch is silent only in English. It's a Dutch word as are many other nautical words in English.
