Gdansk, Poland, 5th October 2011 – In 2010, after ten years of successful growth in the market of luxury, custom-made top quality catamarans and sailing, power yachts and superyachts, Sunreef Yachts has launched a new range of performing fast cruisers ranging from 70 to 170 feet. The shipyard is now introducing a new addition to this range - a sophisticated design for an ultra-modern, high-performance sailing catamaran, the Sunreef 75 Ultimate. It is the proud successor to the Sunreef 80 Ultimate, which has provided the basis for further upgrades and improvements resulting in the creation of the 75 footer.
Sunreef's in-house naval architects and exterior stylists have carefully studied all the feedback from the potential clientele for such a boat and have come up with a new, stunning design of a light, fast and efficient yacht which has been very well received by the industry and has set new standards. Renowned for its innovative projects, Sunreef explores the worlds of sport, powerful emotions and adventure.
The Sunreef 75 Ultimate carbon fibre yacht has thin and sleek marine hulls with a reversed bow and integrated stepped hull chins, essential for the yacht's high performance. The superstructure will be shorter and more minimalist than on conventional leisure catamarans, which will add to the boat's lightweight and streamlined look. The flybridge is beautifully integrated in the superstructure and will be large enough to feature the main helm station and relaxation area. Both hulls will be covered with uncut teak and the forward section of the superstructure will be covered with glass panels, making the vessel luminous and providing the guests with breathtaking views. The hulls and back section of the superstructure will be left pure white and thus create a trendy modern balance with black and white colours. An additional option for the hull are solar panels, providing the yacht with natural solar energy that can be connected to the water heating system. Two vertical retractable wind generators will also be installed on each hull. The mast will be moved back to the centre of the boat helping to achieve the optimal balance, thus creating the ultimate navigation comfort. The sail plan is calculated to reach top speeds of 20+ knots. As for the propulsion system, Sunreef's engineering office is currently working on hybrid and further electric propulsion for this and other units.
The cockpit will feature the usual comfortable seating and dining area for 8, as well as storage for water toys or provisions for long crossings. Two separate entrances to the crew and guest cabins, leading from the cockpit, are located below the sun pad on each hull. The main entrance leads, as usual, to the saloon.
Internal space will depend on the Client's preferences, following Sunreef’s custom finish philosophy. Two options are available: leaving the saloon as an open, undivided space, or fitting it with the galley, dining area and lounge. In both scenarios, the owner suite will be located on the main level in the forward section. It will have a stunning, uncovered view over the sea through the vast glass wall and sliding doors giving access to the private outdoor area protected by two side walls of the superstructure. The internal helm station will be located next to the owner suite. The guest cabins and crew quarters will be placed down the hulls. Additionally, a special storage room will be located directly below the galley in the starboard hull.
