Sail-World.com : Sunreef expands to superyacht market with three new luxury catamarans
Sunreef expands to superyacht market with three new luxury catamarans

'Sunreef Yachts has announced the new Sunreef 82 Double Deck.'    Multihull Solutions    Click Here to view large photo

After the successful launch of the two catamarans over 100 feet in 2010, Sunreef Yachts has announced that three new superyacht projects are well underway.

In August 2012, the prestigious European shipyard will launch the new Sunreef 82 Double Deck catamaran that marks the start of a series of 80ft composite superyachts.

In March 2013, the Sunreef 80 Single Deck is scheduled for launch, followed by the highly anticipated 85 Sunreef Power motoryacht catamaran due for completion later that year.

The perennial style of the new 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 saloon with an internal helm station featuring expansive sea views. The Sunreef 82 Double Deck is the perfect alternative to a traditional motoryacht that has high fuel consumption levels.

The Double Deck catamarans are expected to become superyachts of the future due to their exceptional onboard comfort, low fuel consumption resulting from their low draft, and optimal stability.

The Sunreef 82 Double Deck due for launch in August 2012 is privately owned accommodates up to seven 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 Double Deck 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, occupies 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.

Guest cabins are generously sized with three-way access to a queen-size bed with spectacular sea views through 6-part large windows, and have a separate bathroom and shower, spacious wardrobe, several lockers, a comprehensive entertainment system and air conditioning.

Interior design has been customised following the owners’ suggestions, and combines light and natural colours and materials finished in a classic style. The impressive 64m2 cockpit holds a large dining table for up to eight guests, sunbathing mats, wicker arm- chairs, a flower area, and storage for diving equipment. The spacious flybridge is fitted with the main helm station, bar with barbecue and icemaker, large dining table and comfortable deckchairs, as well as a coffee table.

The Sunreef 80 Single Deck, due for launch early next year, is a dramatically different concept than Sunreef 82 Double Deck.

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 customised 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 optimised to minimise their weight. The sleek and sporty exterior line was designed carefully to reduce windage and water resistance. The yacht is designed to comfortably accommodate nine guests and four crew. The portside hull will comprise one guest cabin with a bathroom, a fully equipped galley and four 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, so 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.

Sunreef Yachts is also set to launch a brand new concept in luxury superyacht power catamarans in late 2013 with the 85 Sunreef Power.

The driving concept behind the new 85 Sunreef Power is maximising the exceptional space afforded by catamarans courtesy of their large beam, and to manage this space in the similar way as on motoryachts. Subsequently, the Sunreef 85 Power will feature 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 delight the most discerning motoryacht clientele who can now enjoy their favourite 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 contemporary, streamlined vessel with a curvy line that makes it look like a truly sporty motoryacht. Interior design is light and minimalist with modular furniture on the main deck and on the flybridge allowing many configurations.

On the aft, an interesting design creates 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.
