Even though the yacht may be a bit smaller than the ones we normally write about, we thought this new Sunreef's engine option was worth mentioning.
2013 saw Sunreef Yachts come together with VOLVO engineers to develop an IPS system installed for the first time in a power yacht. This year, following a client’s request, the shipyard installed the IPS system in the 22 metre yacht, 70 Sunreef Power, to ease manoeuvring and accommodate side cruising and easy turning with one joystick. Despite being widely used on regular motoryachts, they are very uncommon on catamarans and larger yachts.
Further innovation on board this yacht is found in the special hydraulic platform manufactured by French company, Tenderlift. The platform enables rapid exit of inflatable boats, scooters and skis, and can carry devices up to 450kg.
