Sunreef Yachts is expanding its Ultimate series of performance cruisers with the Sunreef 90 Ultimate. She joins the Sunreef 75, Sunreef 80, Sunreef 150 (a.k.a. the One Fifty), and Sunreef 170 sailing catamarans in the series.
Like her smaller sisters, the Sunreef 90 will feature carbon fiber and fiberglass construction. Some of the carbon fiber is being left visible, for effect, especially within the main deck. The use of carbon fiber also helps explain, in part, why Sunreef Yachts expects that she’ll see speeds of 20 knots or better under sail. (Under twin 240-hp diesels, she should cruise at 12 knots.)
The Sunreef 90 Ultimate will have other distinguishing features, such as solar panels. Both wind and hydroelectric generators will additionally power the primary genset while the yacht is at anchor, harnessing Mother Nature to be a bit “greener.” The megayacht will also have a good deal of glass in her superstructure, both overhead and to each side, and even as floor-to-ceiling panels. Sliding doors outboard will make the main deck interior an indoor-outdoor space when wanted.
Any complaints about elbowroom should be handily quashed, given the 36-foot (10.97-meter) beam. The saloon and galley, open to each other, will benefit greatly from this. So, too, should the owner’s stateroom, situated forward to starboard on the main deck. It’s not a full-beam space, though, because the interior helm occupies the port side. Regardless, the glass overhead panels in the saloon will extend to here, making for a bright room. And, the master will really be a double-deck space, considering that the en suite head will be situated immediately below, in one of the pontoons, accessible by a few steps. Furthermore, the owner has access to a private alfresco bar, lounge, and hot tub.
All guests will be accommodated below decks, in three cabins. One of the staterooms is akin to a VIP, given that it occupies the lion’s share of the starboard-side hull. A crew cabin is tucked just aft of it, while the same location in the opposite hull will serve as a pantry and other goods’ stowage. A tender garage lies fully aft.
One unexpected element of the arrangement: a flying bridge devoted to the performance of the yacht, not relaxation. Some of the sail-handling gear will be up here, and much of the space overall will be occupied by the solar panels. Two helm stations have been carved out, one to each side, as well.
