The prices of the Kite-Boat and the SkySails systems are almost similar to a complete performance rigg (including sails, all winches, rails, blocks, ropes, mast, boom, stays and all other parts and reinforcements required for a standard rigg) but Kite-Boat and SkySails systems come with the big advantages of a kite:

  • does not create any shade on the solar panels, which doubles the energy production per day.
  • has a much higher performance than a sail on courses from 90 – 180 °.
  • significantly less and lower cost maintenance than sails
  • safer, quieter, up-to-date technology

An article about the cooperation between SkySails and SILENT-YACHTS you can find here. More details about the SkySails system you can find in this document.

The KiteBoat system is available for the SILENT55, which has the sail option too. The Kite-Boat and SkySails systems are both available for SILENT 60 and SILENT 80.
