Michael & Heike Köhler are the solar-pioneers behind SILENT-YACHTS.
Upon completing his University studies, Michael practiced law for several years until the decision was made by himself & Heike to follow their life-long interest in the marine industry.
As both their hearts were longing for the open blue, they travelled the oceans for over 23 years on conventionally powered sailboats and motorboats. They both spent over 5.000 days on board of their yachts and sailed over 75.000 NM around the world. The experiences they gathered during more than two decades at sea lead them to the conclusion that there had to be a more efficient way to supply yachts with energy.
