Sunreef Yachts Signs Contract for a New Composites Superyacht
Sunreef Yachts announces new composites performance superyacht, the Sunreef 80
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 will be made of an advanced composite sandwich combining vinylester, PVC foam and carbon/glass fibre, with a carbon mast and boom, standing rigging by Kevlar and total sail area of 340 m2, weighing just 45T lightship and 60T fully loaded. 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. For the very first time on a Sunreef single deck catamaran, the owner suite will be located on the main deck. As is the case for all Sunreef catamarans, the cockpit and flybridge will feature dining areas, sunbathing pads and extended storage.
The mould is currently under construction, and the yacht is due to be launched in March 2013. The Sunreef 80 will begin the new composite superyacht series intended for owners who wish to enjoy fast sailing adventures without giving up on comfort and fully customised interiors.
