Silent Yachts, a manufacturer of solar powered yachts, has announced the launch of a new business division, Silent Resorts, which looks to combine its vessels with dedicated, carbon-neutral resort facilities.
The concept is formed around facilities with pre-installed docking areas for the company’s vessels, which take the place of the traditional villas found on island resorts, providing a fast to construct, low-impact, low-cost option for resort developers.
“The new project is aligned with our strategy to deliver sustainable, completely silent, fossil-free leisure experience to clients”, said Michael Köhler, Silent-Yachts founder and CEO. “And it is beneficial for the building process. No costly remote site construction, lengthy approvals, complex engineering, or land-based invasive infrastructure development needed anymore. We provide a floating luxury adventure resort, an experience like no other.”
According to the company, it would take responsibility for the installation of all resort infrastructure, which would naturally harness solar power, as well as supply the required number of solar vessels for customer use.
“We are in talks with investors interested in Caribbean private island development,” added Köhler. “Resort owners will love the reduced capital investment, and the ongoing operational costs will be a fraction of a traditional property. Rooms are no longer fixed to the land or any specific location because they’re on board our floating villas. All resort assets are personal property, eliminating the need for expensive and complex foreign lands ownership and tax structures.”
