If the rose gold and grey color scheme doesn’t catch your eye, check your glasses. The owners of hull number one in the 100 Sunreef Power series clearly want to stand apart from the crowd. Commissioning a power cat doubly proves it, and has Sunreef Yachts convinced it’s on the right track.
From its inception in 2002, the shipyard has focused on multihulls. Initially, they were production-boat sized. But, “we are also gaining ground on the monohull-dominated superyacht scene,” comments Francis Lapp, the founder and president. “Today, more and more owners realize that catamarans make fantastic luxury yachts.”
They also make history. At her launch in August, the 100 Sunreef Power became one of the longest and largest-volume power yachts for the builder. With a 94-foot (28.63-meter) LOA and 44-foot (13.5-meter) beam, she rivals larger single-hulled megayachts for spaciousness.
Nowhere onboard is this more evident than the main deck. An open-plan design, it flows the way the owners like to live, with a lounge area to port and a backlit bar opposite. For movie watching, a 55-inch TV drops down to face the settees. For a show-kitchen-like ambience, the galley, just forward, is also open to these entertaining areas. It’s further convenient for the owners to grab a smoothie after they work out at the adjoining gym to port—and it, too, is open to everything here.
Featuring oak, brass, and rose quartz, the interior of this first 100 Sunreef Power is light and bright, emphasizing her spaciousness. Notably, even situated below decks in the port-side hull, the master suite is roomy. It further feels warm and cozy, classically appealing—a theme running throughout the five other staterooms.
As much as that decor makes the owners happy, their 100 Sunreef Power naturally draws them to the capacious outside spaces. The bow lounge, for instance, is ideal for sundowners or simply enjoying time at anchor. The flying bridge, meanwhile (below), is for all-day relaxing and entertaining. Big sunpads flank a custom hot tub fully aft. Lunches on the hook happen at the dining table and bar. Come nighttime, a retractable projector and screen emerge to show movies, with audio pumping out from a superb sound system.
Whether taking advantage of transatlantic range or enjoying the watertoys (stowed in a garage plus on the hydraulic platform, notably) locally, the owners of hull number one are making the most of their new multihull. They prove the alternate possibilities when it comes to large cruising craft.
