Sunreef Yachts Sets Another Milestone in Power Catamaran Design with the New 85 Sunreef Power
Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2012, Sunreef Yachts continues growing in the catamaran design sector. Its in-house design office, employing young and talented designers, is located within the shipyard to make the design process smoother and more efficient. Following the introduction of the successful 70 Sunreef Power in 2008, and the launch of the 60 Sunreef Power in July 2012, the company has just unveiled in Cannes a brand new concept of a power catamaran with the 85 Sunreef Power, being another milestone in luxury catamaran design.
The main idea behind the concept is to stress the superb space offered by catamarans thanks to their large beam, and to arrange this space in a similar way to motoryachts. This means a single large main deck spanning the entire beam, housing dining and lounging areas in both the exterior aft deck and inside the saloon to create a seamless, open space. The generously-sized master cabin is located in the front on the same level. The flybridge will include the helm station and two lounge areas (inside and outside), while the intimate terrace at the front of the main deck will comprise a jet ski with its crane and sun pads.
This space arrangement is certain to please demanding motoryacht clientele who will now be able to enjoy their favourite motoryacht design and layout combined with catamaran advantages such as stability, extensive living and storage space, comfort of cruising, low draught, low fuel consumption, and oceanic range. Design-wise, the 85 Sunreef Power is a modern-looking, streamlined vessel with a curvy line that makes her look like a truly sporty motoryacht. The interior design is light and minimalist with modular furniture on the main deck and the flybridge allowing many configurations, and built-in furniture to be installed within the hulls only.
A beach club platform, typical of motoryachts, has been created on the aft. The platform will allow guests to be close to sea level at anchor and low speeds, and provides easy access to all water toys and tender stored in the aft dinghy garage. The project has already received serious enquiries, with the first contract expected to be signed within the next 3 months. Sunreef Yachts is presenting motoryacht lovers with an alternative solution to exclusive yachting with responsible fuel consumption.
