SILENT 55 review – Jack Haines from Motor Boat & Yachting

Jack Haines from Motor Boat & Yachting headed to Mallorca to find out if our Silent 55 gives a glimpse into the future of the motorboat.



Den R. P. says:

Nice Boat. Notice was crushing in overcast day. Leavening it to draw only 40% to 25% effective on those days. Does say how much fuel it holds but seems to me would need 28 more batteries & solar panels in front where seats are as well.would need same panels they put in their 80 foot yacht. Does say anything about heat displacement of batteries& fire issues which be a big concern.automatic fire retardant system would be nice. Have to have enough fuel as well to run generator for 10 or more days non stop on-count of sever weather conditions along time at sea. I have a friend that’s electrical engineer & have to see this interesting. It certainly have to be beefed up to even attempt an around the World crossing. Safety a number one concern of course. Beautiful Boat & some custom things like refrigerator needs to be done. This would drive cost up dramatically. 55 foot is enough & running it long range non stop be interesting. For range looks like about 6 knots be it without draining power to quickly. Still much cheaper over full time conventional.

Richard Getz says:

Great vessel. Solid State Batteries will greatly improve this in the next 5 years.

Joe Malovich says:

They will need to do a transatlantic crossing to silence the inevitable naysayers.
