The collaboration between the German bathroom manufacturer and the shipbuilding company is sustainable in the truest sense of the word, as both 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 emission. With Kaldewei and SILENT-YACHTS, you have two partners who both consistently place sustainability and CO2 savings at the focus of their actions.

For Kaldewei, luxstainability means nothing less than the combination of individual luxury and sustainability. The production of products using C02-reduced bluemint Steel, marks a forward-looking strategy within the entire Kaldewei production. From the company’s point of view, both aspects are decisive factors for contemporary bathroom design, and which is now being used for the first time in modern shipbuilding.

“We believe that when it comes to yachting, sustainability goes beyond the solar-electric powertrain,” said designer Juliana Miguel, Creative Lead at SILENT-YACHTS. “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”.

The design team is enthusiastic about steel enamel and the modern lines of the Kaldewei washbasins. With its slender design, Miena skilfully adds accents to every bathroom, even on the high seas, and turns the bathroom into a place of retreat and an area of wellbeing. The recyclable and durable steel enamel material makes the washbowls an easy-care, durable jewel that can withstand constant use or particularly salty air.
