Following two superyacht launches in 2010, Sunreef Yachts continues moving forward in the field of large yacht design. In early 2011, the shipyard received an order for an 82 feet Double Decker, and the company has now announced a new sale of a similarly sized 80 feet LOA yet dramatically different concept based on light displacement, performance and speed.
Commissioned by a European owner, the Sunreef 80 will be made of an advanced composite sandwich combining vinylester, PVC foam and carbon/glass fibre, 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. 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. For the very first time on a Sunreef single deck catamaran, the owner suite will be located on the main deck. This means that the internal cockpit will comprise the navigation station, dining area, lounge zone and the owner suite on the front right. The interior design will represent a modern and minimalist style based on white and grey colours with touches of a fresh blend of strong, modern colours.
The mould is currently under construction, and the yacht is due to be launched in March 2013. The Sunreef 80 will begin the new composite superyacht series intended for owners who wish to enjoy fast sailing adventures without giving up on comfort and fully customized interiors.
