Create a notification for "Power catamaran"

The hulls feature inverted bows and an imposing freeboard - there is no lack of volume on board, especially since the nacelle occupies a good part of the deck. The recently launched hull #1 was able to validate its specifications, i.e. sailing without burning any fuel, thereby not emitting any pollutants, at up to 4/5 knots. The Silent 60, like all the other models from the brand, is of course powered by twin electric motors. The manufacturer offers three formulas - 2 x 30 kW, 2 x 250 kW, and 2 x 220 HP coupled with two small 14 kW electric motors. Extended forward at the front of the coachroof by a cap, and aft by a large bimini, the superstructures are designed to support a maximum surface area of solar panels (450 sq ft/42 m², compared with 325/30 for the Silent 55). There are various layout plans offering up to 6 cabins and as many bathrooms. The hydraulic platform can support a tender up to 13’9” (4.20 m) in length.
