Hong Kong-based Asiamarine will now represent Silent-Yachts in Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand
All-electric catamaran builder Silent-Yachts has signed an agreement with Hong Kong-based Asiamarine, which will be Silent-Yachts’ exclusive dealer in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Thailand. Asiamarine will provide access and service to the company’s full range of solar-powered catamarans for clients in the region.
In a statement, Silent-Yachts and Asiamarine said they would exhibit at the upcoming Singapore Yachting Festival, set for April 27 to 30, at ONE15 Marina.
Silent-Yachts has expanded its range rapidly in the past few years, and some of the Austrian brand’s production takes place in Thailand at the PMG Shipyard. Silent-Yachts has 28 solar electric catamarans under construction in two production sites, including the flagship SILENT 120 Explorer, with the order book filled until 2024.

“Silent-Yachts has pioneered and championed this key segment of alternative powered catamarans for close to 20 years, gaining incomparable experience and developing reliable and performing solutions,” said Eric Noyel, founder and CEO of Asiamarine. “We expect the solar electric catamarans to be a huge success in Southeast Asia. Our clients are increasingly sensitive to the environmental challenges.”
Noyel says that he hopes to bring a Silent-Yachts model for show in Asia by early 2024.
With over 15 years of experience in the boating industry, Asiamarine is the dealer for Galeon luxury motoryachts, Bali sail catamarans, and Nautor’s Swan. Asiamarine also represents Fraser Yachts in the Asia region.
Silent-Yachts specialises in all-electric catamarans powered by large arrays of photovoltaic cells and large battery banks. The company also released a version of its SILENT 60 with kite-wing option.
“We are pleased to have such a reputable company as our partner in a very promising yachting region,” says Michael Köhler, CEO of Silent-Yachts. “We are excited to work together and bring sustainable yachting to Asia.”
