SILENT-YACHTS has strengthened the team. Jochen Rudat joined SILENT-YACHTS advisory board. He has over 10 years’ experience at Tesla, the most valuable car company in the world and was also a direct report to Elon Musk. Recently, Jochen Rudat was Central Europe Director at Tesla.
“We are very happy to welcome Jochen in the team,” said Michael Köhler, founder and CEO of SILENT-YACHTS. “Next to the fact that Jochen shares the same passion and enthusiasm for the electric future as we do, the knowledge and experience he brings to the table will be valuable for Silent-yachts to successfully master Silent-Yachts future plans and challenges.”
SILENT-YACHTS is one of the most active players on the solar electric luxury catamarans market in the world. The company currently has 10 yachts under construction at shipyards in Thailand and Italy.
“I see the same transition happening in the yachting industry as in the automotive industry,” commented Jochen Rudat. “Since Silent-Yachts clearly is the leading pioneer of this change, I am eager to provide my support and advise on their further path. As the initiating catalyst for a more sustainable future in luxury yachting, we want to continue drive innovation towards the right direction. I see a lot of parallels between Tesla and Silent-Yachts such as their commitment of creating a solar powered catamaran from scratch by starting off with a white canvas and a bold vision. With this in mind, I understand and agree why Silent-Yachts has being labelled by media as the Tesla of the Seas”.
