The accommodation sleeps up to 12 guests and there is a crew of 13 for professional service.The AMELS 180 series features sizeable main and upper aft decks, both of which benefit from the shade of the above overhang to create a space usable throughout the day and in a variety of weather conditions. The lower deck is designed for a casual lounge where guests can begin the day with coffee and breakfast outside, then ending the day with drinks and conversation with spotlights in the ceiling for illumination after dark.

The self-sufficient motor catamaran SILENT 55 has unlimited range without burning any fuel and produces no vibrations, fumes or noise due to its electric propulsion. Minimal maintenance is required for the drive-train and household power supply, and while at anchor the air conditioning and cooling systems can run without the use of the generator: The only time the generator is used is to recharge the batteries in long-term bad weather or for extended cruising at higher speeds. At a reduced speed, the SILENT 55 can cruise non-stop throughout the day and night.

The 40m2/430ft2 combined salon, galley and helm station will be a hub of activity and allows for plenty of sunlight from all angles, and glass sliding doors to the main deck aft will create a more ambient living experience. Broadside decks will connect around to the foredeck, where there are sunbeds and two trampolines that can be used for exercise as well as sunbathing.
