Sunreef Yachts explores superyacht segment with three new 80+ luxury catamarans

After the successful launch of the two catamaran-superyachts over 100 feet, CHE and IPHARRA, in 2010, Sunreef Yachts keeps developing large projects with and for its clients. Within the next two weeks the shipyard will launch the new model, the Sunreef 82 Double Deck starting a series of 80ft composite superyachts. The next one to be launched is the Sunreef 80 Single Deck scheduled for March 2013. And finally, the new project of an 85ft motoryacht catamaran, the 85 Sunreef Power, has just been developed by the Sunreefs in-house design office and should be completed by the end of 2013.

Sunreef 82 Double Deck


The everlasting stylish look of the 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 salon with an internal helm station with sea views. That is why this model is a perfect alternative to a traditional motoryacht which consumes tremendous amounts of fuel. The Double Deck catamarans have a chance to become superyachts of the future with their comfort on board and low fuel consumption resulting from its low draft and the possibility of cruising on sails in keeping with the maximum stability at all times.
This private yacht accommodates up to
7 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 DD 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, is set to occupy 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 compre- hensive 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 64 m2 cockpit holds a large dining table for up to 8 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 ice maker, large dining table and comfortable deckchairs, as well as a coffee table.

Sunreef 80 Single Deck


The Sunreef 80 Single Deck is a dramatically different concept than S82DD, 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 customized 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 optimized to minimize their weight. 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. 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. This means that 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.

85 Sunreef Power NEW DESIGN 2013


After having introduced the very successful 70 Sunreef Power in 2008, the company is now introducing a Brand New concept of a power superyacht with the 85 Sunreef Power, being another milestone in the luxury catamaran design. The main idea of the concept is to stress the superb space that catamarans offer thanks to their large beam and to arrange this space in the similar way as on motoryachts. This means 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 certainly please the very demanding motoryacht clientele that can now enjoy their favorite 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 modern looking, streamlined vessel with a curvy line that makes it look like a truly sporty motoryacht. Interior design is meant to be light and minimalist with modular furniture on the main deck and on the flybridge allowing many configurations whereas the built-in furniture one will be installed only within the hulls. On the aft, an interesting solution was found to create 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.

The Sunreef 82 looks great, you can definitely see the similarities between that and a superyacht. It looks incredibly spacious for it's size too. It's a great alternative to buying a motoryacht! Looking forward to the launch of the next two, especially the new 85 Sunreef. You'd definitely notice one of these boats if they went past :)!
