Having enjoyed a voyage in the SY Gondola (she of the clipper bow) earlier today I can confirm that at least one steam yacht is astonishingly, if not absolutely, silent. And surprisingly fast. If AR had intended to the Beckfoot launch to be steam powered he would have told us so and mentioned the rather obvious plume of steam.
PS well worth a trip
