Yacht maker Silent-Yachts has unveiled the Silent-Resorts, a concept luxury resort that uses solar powered catamarans and sustainably constructed buildings to create an environmentally friendly tourist destination.
Like any tropical vacation destination, the resort will have a land-based restaurant, clubhouse, gym, spa, and pool, as well as beachfront suites with tent tops.
But unlike the typical luxury hotel, Silent-Resorts relies on the catamarans — built by Silent-Yachts — to serve as “floating villas” for the vacationers, taking away the need for additional land-based hotel buildings that could otherwise increase its carbon footprint, land use, and construction costs. And because the catamarans are solar and battery powered, the floating suites can in turn supply energy to the land-based amenities and structures.
