Sialia Yachts has unveiled its latest eco-friendly vessel, the Sialia 59 Loft, a ground-breaking electric chase boat.
Designed as a multi-functional electric superyacht chase vessel, the new Sialia 59 Loft is not only sustainable but also offers superb onboard comfort and silent operation while doubling as an alternative power source.
At night, the Loft’s various technologically advanced systems enable the vessel to operate silently and emission-free, providing electric power overnight for peaceful stays at anchor
“Not only does the Sialia 59 Loft replace the need for yacht owners to have multiple single-purpose tenders, but it also enables any yacht to improve its operations and carbon footprint,” explains Ivo Hagemans, sales and marketing director at Sialia. “This is achieved through the Loft’s cutting-edge design, which elegantly combines three distinct functions into a single yacht: a tender, a chase boat, and a generator.”
From a design perspective, one of the most intriguing spaces aboard the 18.1-metre yacht is “The Nest,” which represents the heart of the boat. The Nest offers panoramic views and immerses passengers in the Loft’s serene performance. The bow area smoothly blends with the main cockpit, unveiling a radiant lounge, a generously appointed day head, and a guest-serving bar while maintaining a seamless connection with the surrounding environment.
The Sialia 59 Loft’s aft deck transforms into a versatile beach club, making for an ideal setting for watersports, leisurely relaxation, or provisioning trips for the crew.
On the technical front, the Sialia Loft features cutting-edge technology, showcasing Sialia’s proprietary battery solutions and a sophisticated Ship Management System (SMS). Complementing this is the powerful Ampros electric propulsion system, a staple in every Sialia unit. In addition, owners have the capability to monitor and command the yacht’s operations from any corner of the globe.
With a capacity for 12 passengers, the boat can recharge its batteries using sustainable sources, and this power can be utilized to supply the mothership with energy when required.
“The Loft is versatile in using a diverse range of sustainable fuels for propulsion and generating power for the mothership,” says Hagemans. “Thanks to the onboard hydrogen storage and fuel cell, the Loft can silently produce power and generate significant amounts of H2O. Moreover, the onboard range extender is HVO diesel-ready, enabling the Loft to complete long-distance passages at cruising speeds, recharge its batteries, and provide the mothership with electricity, all while maintaining low emissions.”
