German bathroom manufacturer Kaldewei has revealed it is equipping the solar-powered catamarans of Silent-Yachts with Miena washbowls. The collaboration between the German bathroom manufacturer and the shipbuilding company is said to be 'sustainable in the truest sense of the word', as both brands share high standards when it comes to ecologically responsible products. The vessels from Silent-Yachts are solar powered and electric, which gives them the ability to cruise and operate with zero emissions. The latest generation of yachts, which includes the first electric vessels, will set sail in October 2022.
“We believe that when it comes to yachting, sustainability goes beyond the solar-electric powertrain. We know that it takes a comprehensive approach in all areas for our passion really to work hand in hand with nature. For this reason, we base our approach on three pillars: Design, material and operations,” said designer Juliana Miguel, who is the creative lead at Silent-Yachts.
Kaldewei's Miena washbowls are made from recyclable and durable steel enamel, making them durable, able to withstand constant use and salty air.
