The sail configuration comprises a square-top main, reacher and jib, and she would carry a total sail wardrobe excess of 2,500 square metres.

A huge glass superstructure is a feature of the MM460 CAT's design, upon which a 60 square-metre flybridge can be found. This expansive space not only offers clear sight lines in all directions for the dual helm positions, but also offers a space for guests to enjoy panoramic views out to sea whilst under sail.

A sheltered lounge and al-fresco dining area can be found under the overhang of the flybridge, with L-shaped sofas located further aft which nestle against the guardrail and disguise the steps leading down to the swim platforms.Sunreef MM 460 CAT yacht concept Photo: Sunreef YachtsFor guests keen to relax, the main saloon can be accessed via full height glass doors, which retract almost the full width of the superstructure and includes a generous lounge and dining area for up to 18 guests.

Accommodation on board the MM460 CAT includes a master and VIP suite positioned forwards on the main deck. Equal in size and both ensuite, the staterooms come complete with desks, walk-in wardrobes and chaise lounges.

Crew members are housed in the port hull across three cabins in twin bunks, plus an engineer's cabin and a captain's cabin.

For guests keen to make the most of life on the water, the MM460 also delivers in spades, carrying a 6.2-metre tender aft in the starboard hull, with space available for additional water toys, scuba dive cylinders and compressors and a wetsuit store. In addition, the crew/rescue tender is stowed in the forepeak, as well as space for two jet skis below deck.

Found in the port hull, it comes complete with bar counter, stools, an adjacent sauna and a 2.5-metre fold-down platform for easy access to the water from the port side.Sunreef MM 460 CAT yacht concept Photo: Sunreef YachtsDesigned to be a confident cruiser through and through, the Sunreef MM460 CAT concept would be more than capable of taking on transoceanic passages thanks to her ability to remain self-sufficient for extended periods of operation.
