Come March 2013, Sunreef Yachts will launch the first of its new Sunreef 80 performance sailing superyacht series.
The Sunreef 80, measuring 78’7” (23.99 meters), bears some similarities to other Sunreef catamarans, in that alfresco dining and sunning will be the focus of the cockpit and flying bridge. The Sunreef 80 also allows owners to customize the interiors. The European owner of the first Sunreef 80 has selected a thoroughly modern interior design, as the rendering here shows. A total of nine in the owner’s party will be accommodated, with all guests’ staterooms below decks. The owner, however, will enjoy a main-deck master suite. It should be plenty comfortable, given the Sunreef 80’s beam of 38 feet (11.6 meters). Four crewmembers are also housed onboard.
The primary difference between the Sunreef 80 and Sunreef Yachts’ other megayacht series is the emphasis on performance. Composite construction, employing PVC foam and carbon fiber, will keep weight down. Sunreef says displacement should be just 60 tons fully loaded. Combined with a shallow draft of 5’9” (1.8 meters) Further saving weight while ensuring strength is the carbon fiber mast and boom.
Speaking of the mast, the Sunreef 80’s will rise 100 feet (30.7 meters) high. As for the sail plan, the main sail will be 1,991 square feet (185 square meters), the gennaker will measure 3,014 square feet (280 square meters), and the solent should come in at 753 square feet (70 square meters). Twin Yanmar diesel inboards will assist in in-harbor maneuvering.
