Represented in Australia by Multihull Solutions, Sunreef Yachts has just confirmed the sale of a cutting-edge 80-foot superyacht.

Following two superyacht launches in 2010, Sunreef Yachts continues to lead the field in luxury large yacht design.

This new Sunreef 80 is significantly different from previous models made by the company, with its design emphasising light displacement, performance and speed.

Commissioned by a European owner, the Sunreef 80 will be constructed of an advanced composite sandwich combining vinylester, PVC foam and carbon/glass fibre. It will feature a carbon mast and boom, standing rigging with Kevlar and total sail area of 340 m², weighing just 45T lightship and 60T fully loaded.

The sleek and sporty exterior line has been designed carefully to reduce windage and water resistance.

The Sunreef 80 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. For the very first time on a Sunreef single deck catamaran, the owner suite will be located on the main deck. This enables the internal cockpit to comprise the navigation station, dining area, lounge zone with the owner suite on the front right.

The interior design will represent a striking, minimalist style based on a modern white and grey palette with touches of strong, contemporary colours.

The mould is currently under construction, and the yacht is due to be launched in Europe in March 2013. The Sunreef 80 will begin the new composite superyacht series intended for owners who wish to enjoy fast and exhilarating sailing adventures without sacrificing comfort and fully customised interiors.

Multihull Solutions is the exclusive Australian and New Zealand agent and importer of Sunreef Yachts. The company also exclusively represents Fountaine Pajot, Trawler, Catana, NEEL and Journey.
