SUNREEF YACHTS BUILDS ITS FIRST ADVANCED CARBON SUNREEF 74
The prototype of the carbon built Sunreef 74 is currently taking shape in the Poland-based shipyard’s production halls.
Sunreef Yachts - the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of luxury multihulls introduced the Sunreef 74 line to the public about a year ago as a response to a growing demand for modern yachts offering a perfectly balanced compromise between supreme comfort, performance and advanced technology.
The unit being the shipyard’s 6th release within the Sunreef 74 line, will feature a carbon deck, flybridge, bulkheads and superstructure, allowing an improvement of seaworthiness and a smooth movement while passing through waves. The rigging includes a carbon mast and boom with an in-boom furling system.
The main navigation station is equipped with touchscreens enabling automatic sail adjustments coupled with load sensors to prevent winch, hardware and rig overload. These solutions provide a redundant, easy and safe control of the sails and rig. The boat also features a large overlapping genoa for upwind optimized performance, a code 0 for reaching and a furling spinnaker for downwind performance.
With four Sunreef 74 ’s launched and two in construction, the shipyard is currently manufacturing a special edition of this successful model prized with the Asia Boating Award 2015 as the Best Worldwide Sailing Yacht Above 15m. Sunreef Yachts specializes in building customized luxury catamarans, all reflecting different approaches to yachting. After the success of the WildBerry, the launch of the classic-styled Lucy Z and the recent premiere of the twin charter bestsellers Blue Deer and 19th Hole, the shipyard is now adding an ultra-modern carbon Sunreef 74 to its portfolio of individually tailored multihulls. The boat’s launching is planned for the early half of 2016.
Launched mid-2013, Sunreef Yachts’ first carbon built catamaran was the Sunreef 80 Carbon Line Levante - a spectacular light displacement sailing superyacht prized with the European Medal Award by the Business Center Club.
