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 is now delighted to announce 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 CARBON LINE is made of an advanced composite sandwich combining vinylester, PVC foam and carbon/glass fiber, with a carbon mast and boom in-house made, standing rigging with Kevlar and total sail area of 340 m2, weighing just 45T lightship. The sleek and sporty exterior line was designed carefully to reduce windage and water resistance.
The yacht is meant for fast sailing with easily reached 15 knots and maximum speeds on sails set for 20+ knots. Main sail and Genoa are made of Vectran while the Gennaker is made of Cuben Fiber, best materials available on the market for performance-oriented cruising yachts.
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 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. As is the case for all Sunreef catamarans, the cockpit and flybridge will feature dining areas, sunbathing pads and extended storage.
First unit was launched in July 2013 and the second one is currently under construction and will be completed in 8 months only. The Sunreef 80 CARBON LINE begins the new composite superyacht series intended for owners who wish to enjoy fast sailing adventures without giving up on comfort and fully customized interiors.
