If Sunreef Yachts signs a contract for the concept project shown here, the One Fifty, as she’s being called, will become the largest catamaran in the world. In fact, she’ll beat the megayacht that’s presently on pace for the title by just five feet.
While the Polish yard is keeping full specifications secret until the Monaco Yacht Show, where it will discuss the design in detail with clients and those of us in the media alike, Sunreef is revealing some details. First, six double staterooms spread over the main deck and in the starboard hull will accommodate a party of 12, while eight crewmembers will be housed in the port hull. The 150-footer will also emphasize natural light and open space (even with spot for a TV upwards of 80 inches) in the saloon, which will boast panoramic views.
“The One Fifty is a quantum leap reflecting our customers’ inquiries,” says Nicolas Lapp, Sunreef’s vice-president. He explains that the One Fifty is a natural extension of the increasing interest in catamarans that the yard has seen develop over the past few years.
But she also marks quite a departure. If you’ve seen renderings and/or construction photos of Sunreef’s two current megayacht projects, the Sunreef 102 Double Deck and the Sunreef 114, you’ll notice that the One Fifty has a more modern, sweeping, sleek topside. It forms flat surfaces where it meets the hulls’ curves. The reason for that is because the yard’s design team wanted to incorporate solar panels as a “green” energy source. You can get a better sense of this in the rendering below, which also shows how there are wide expanses of teak. It additionally reveals a sunroof forward, which shelters the relocated cockpit. It’s equipped with sunbeds, a dining area for 12, and seating areas. The cockpit will be accessible from both the flying bridge as well as the saloon and staterooms.
This is one project I’m certainly looking forward to learning more about. I’ll have additional information after meeting with the Sunreef team at the Monaco Yacht Show.
