After the successful launch of the two catamaran-superyachts over 100 feet, CHE and IPHARRA, in 2010, Sunreef Yachts keeps developing large projects with and for its clients. Within the next two weeks the shipyard will launch the new model, the Sunreef 82 Double Deck starting a series of 80ft composite superyachts.
The next one to be launched is the Sunreef 80 Single Deck scheduled for March 2013. And finally, the new project of an 85ft motoryacht catamaran, the 85 Sunreef Power, has just been developed by the Sunreefs in-house design office and should be completed by the end of 2013.
The everlasting stylish look of the Sunreef 82 Double Deck is the result of Sunreef’s advanced design technologies and ongoing research into new solutions and inspirations. In the double deck concept there is one spacious owner cabin in the front, and a large and bright salon with an internal helm station with sea views. That is why this model is a perfect alternative to a traditional motoryacht which consumes tremendous amounts of fuel. The Double Deck catamarans have a chance to become superyachts of the future with their comfort on board and low fuel consumption resulting from its low draft and the possibility of cruising on sails in keeping with the maximum stability at all times.
This private yacht accommodates up to 7 guests in one beam-wide owner suite, one VIP queen cabin and one guest twin cabin convertible to a double cabin with an additional Pullman bed, attended by two crew to assist the owner, a sailor himself.
An innovative element aboard the Sunreef 82 DD is the smart mezzanine floor housing a coffee table within a lounge area located on the starboard side of the main deck within the dining area. There is also a purpose-built storage area for painting equipment, as the owners enjoy this activity while sailing. The owner suite, arranged over two floors, is set to occupy the entire forward section of the yacht with a master cabin, Jacuzzi and vanity on the main deck, and wardrobe and floor-to-ceiling storage and bathroom located below decks in port and starboard hulls respectively.
Sunreef 80 Single Deck
Comes as a dramatically different concept than S82DD, based on light displacement, performance and speed. The Sunreef 80 is intended for owners who wish to enjoy fast sailing adventures without giving up the comfort and fully customized interiors. Commissioned by a European owner, the Sunreef 80 will be made of an advanced composite sandwich combining epoxy-vinylester resin, PVC foam, glass fibre with carbon reinforcement for the hulls and carbon fibre for the deck and the superstructure, with a carbon mast and boom, standing rigging with Kevlar and total sail area of 340 m2, weighing just 45T lightship and 60T fully loaded. Sunreef’s engineering office produced a special weighing platform that will register all additional weight of the boat. All systems will also be optimized to minimize their weight. The sleek and sporty exterior line was designed carefully to reduce windage and water resistance.
The yacht is designed to comfortably accommodate 9 guests and 4 crew. The portside hull will comprise one guest cabin with a bathroom, a fully equipped galley and 4 crew cabins. The starboard hull will feature one guest and one children’s cabin, both with private en-suite bathrooms, and the owner’s dressing room and bathroom directly accessible from the master suite on the main deck. For the first time on a Sunreef single deck catamaran, the owner suite (17m2) will be located on the main deck. This means that the internal cockpit will include the navigation station, dining area, lounge zone and the owner suite on the front starboard. The interior design will represent a modern and minimalist style based on white and grey with touches of a fresh blend of strong, modern colours.
85 Sunreef Power
After having introduced the very successful 70 Sunreef Power in 2008, the company is now introducing a Brand New concept of a power superyacht with the 85 Sunreef Power, being another milestone in the luxury catamaran design. The main idea of the concept is to stress the superb space that catamarans offer thanks to their large beam and to arrange this space in the similar way as on motoryachts. This means one huge main deck spanning the entire beam and housing dining and lounging areas, in both exterior aft deck and inside the saloon that all together create a seamless, open space.
The generously sized master cabin is located in the front on the same level. The flybridge will include helm station and two lounging areas (inside and outside) while the frontal intimate terrace on the main deck will comprise Jacuzzi and sun pads. Guest cabins with private bathrooms and crew quarters with direct access to the galley and storage will be located within the hulls. This space arrangement will certainly please the very demanding motoryacht clientele that can now enjoy their favorite motoryacht design and layout combined with catamaran advantages such as stability, extended living and storage space, comfort of cruising, low draft, low fuel consumption and oceanic range Design wise, the 85 Sunreef Power is a modern looking, streamlined vessel with a curvy line that makes it look like a truly sporty motoryacht.
Interior design is meant to be light and minimalist with modular furniture on the main deck and on the flybridge allowing many configurations whereas the built-in furniture one will be installed only within the hulls. On the aft, an interesting solution was found to create a beach club platform, typical for motoryachts. This platform will allow guests to stay down by the sea level at anchor and at lower speeds and will make easy accessing all water toys and tender stored in the aft dinghy garage.
