New advanced explorer yacht from Sialia Yachts

Sialia Yachts is expanding its range of electric craft with its advanced Sialia 80 Explorer yacht.

The yacht follows on from the launch of the Sialia 59 range in 2023.

The Sialia 80 is Sialia’s most advanced vessel to date, promising electric cruising with all the autonomy needed to travel the world in ultimate tranquillity and safety.

The vessel features an efficient AMPROS-developed propulsion system scalable up to 6MW.

The yacht has been developed in collaboration with designer and naval architect Vripack for functional innovation and aesthetics.

“We strongly believe that a holistic approach to yacht design leads to a satisfying experience,” said Joost Mertens, fleet and sales manager at Vripack. “Proper naval architecture accommodates the exciting exterior aesthetics and playful layout and ensures efficient and safe cruising. Utterly important in the case of electric propulsion.

“It is this holistic approach to yacht design, that makes it the best investment you can make. An efficient and safe hull carries through the lifetime of the yacht without any maintenance.”

Direct access

Features of the Sialia 80 Explorer include a master cabin that offers direct access to the water and beach club, a characteristic attributed to the proximity of the electric drive.

Exterior glazing with a diamond pattern, along with expansive mullion-less windows, have been incorporated for an airy atmosphere and to connect passengers to their natural surroundings.

The yacht is built in high-grade marine-type aluminium and has a length of almost 26.6m and a width of 8.5m. She can accommodate up to 12 passengers in four guest cabins and two crew berths.

Powered by twin 400kW electric motors, the yacht can achieve speeds of over 11 knots and a range of 3,000+ nm, facilitated by an 800-kWh battery capacity and two variable RPM range extenders.

“While eco-friendly yachting is still a niche, progress toward cleaner technologies is inevitable,” explained Stanislav Szadkowski, co-founder and CEO of Sialia Yachts.

“The speed of this change depends on our daily efforts and commitment to a greener future. Sialia 80 Explorer is designed to redefine exploration and sustainability; to thrive in a variety of environmental conditions, travelling to some of the world’s most remote locations in silence and with minimal environmental impact.”
