Silenseas, the ship of the future designed by Chantiers de l’Atlantique


Silenseas is a combination of a yacht and a liner. Its dimensions allow it to sail in the most exclusive areas of the world.

Sailing with an actual sail will be an extraordinary life experience for the passengers: no engine noise, no vibration and, most importantly, the satisfaction brought by a near “zero-emission” cruise.


  • Solid Sail is a significant technological step forward. It allows for an easy manipulation of the sail all the while remaining safe and reliable. It promises to endure the test of time and presents unprecedented aerodynamical performances. This patented system is made of composite articulated panels able to fold automatically.
  • The sails, combined with dual-fuel engines will represent a significant step forward in the respect of future regulations related to greenhouse gaz emission (European Green Deal).
