Sunreef Yachts Unveils a New Sail Yacht Concept
While working on the new Sunreef catamaran line, the shipyard’s in-house designers have been looking for ways to express the spirit of a classic sail yacht. At the same time, looking for it through modern marine architecture. As the first drawings were made, the idea became clear. An all-around sailing leisure yacht range ideal for exclusive getaways, charter and transoceanic adventures emerged. In Cannes, the shipyard lifts the veil of secrecy for a look at its all-new sail yacht on offer, before it sees the first launch in 2018.
The timing seems to be just about perfect as this year. Sunreef Yachts celebrates 15 years of activity in the industry. With nearly one hundred fully-customized units launched, including some of the world’s biggest and most innovative leisure multihulls, Sunreef Yachts seizes the opportunity not only to take a look back but also one to the future.
Purity, space and light are the essential elements of the newest sail range. They boast a combination of exterior and interior areas easily flowing into one another. A clever bridge deck and superstructure design allow for a great onboard comfort potential. Whereas the generous teak use, high bulwarks and classy lines underscore the modern style with a classic edge. Sunreef Yachts’ latest addition is a tribute to all those who won’t settle for a mass product. Future Owners will begin their journey with a white canvas. One to fill with ideas, shapes and colours.
Flexibility is Freedom
With a completely fresh superstructure concept, the range gains a saloon plan with an outstanding potential for customization. A vast, central lounging space with a panoramic view and endless layout possibilities, it opens both onto the bow terrace and cockpit. The bow benefits from a cosy lounge with a great shield from sun and wind. To the aft, the saloon merges with the generous cockpit extending with a large aft platform. All the areas combined form a universal, open environment where flexibility and freedom reign.
Taking Lounging to a Higher Level
A couple of stairs up from the cockpit, the flybridge is more than easily accessed. Undeniably the new yachts’ most spectacular feature, the sundeck’s surface was specifically conceived to be the highlight of every model within the range. While housing the main helm, the flybridge is definitely a dedication to leisure. In fact, it has more than enough space for movable furniture, a Jacuzzi, fully-equipped wet bar, a barbecue and large sun pads.
Retreat and Relax
The line’s new bridge deck has an astute design that maximizes the volume available in the hulls. The range will boast an infinite variety of layouts suitable for both charter and private boats. Depending on the Owner’s wish, the galley will be either placed down at hull level or seamlessly integrated with the saloon. The hulls provide impressive volumes to set up a custom layout including airy, luxurious guest cabins and an opulent master suite with a walk-in dressing, desk, sofa, retractable TV and an immense bathroom. A perfect setting to unwind and relax after a long day in the sun.
The new 4-model line will comprise units ranging from compact to superyacht. With already four sales, Sunreef Yachts unveiled the range’s first details during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017. Presenting a scale model of a luxurious 60-footer due for launch in 2018. A more voluminous catamaran is to join the range next, expanding Sunreef Yachts’ new offer of luxury multihulls.
Brendan Hunt, CEO of Vicsail, is effusive in his praise for this new range of Sailing cats from Sunreef. “The big announcement is that we have a Classic Sail 80 coming for one of our best clients. This new range is just what is needed in a market which is crowded with older designs. The Sail Classic range in both 60 and 80 feet offer a completely new approach. They are fast, stylish and with features like access to sun lounge areas forward. The biggest Flybridge in class and amazing patio feel aft. We are thrilled to a part of the design stage, and look forward to presenting this boat to all our clients” states Hunt.
