The Sunreef 80 Eco sailing in Dubai
Sunreef Yachts has revealed a full set of photos of the solar-electric Sunreef 80 Eco as it sails in Dubai. The 78-footer is the first sailing catamaran from the Polish builder’s new Eco range and is a fully-autonomous craft using the brand’s revolutionary green tech for fuel-free cruising in silence.
The hulls are covered in Sunreef’s solar skin
The sail wardrobe includes a 200sqm main sail, 155sqm Genoa, 340sqm gennaker and 70sqm staysail. While under sail, the yacht produces green energy continuously due to her hydrogeneration system.
The flybridge includes two running machines
Built by Sunreef, the catamaran’s carbon mast is fitted with composite-integrated solar panels, while the solar ‘skin’ is also built into the hull sides, superstructure and bimini roof, with the curved solar panels making the a pioneer in green yachting.
The foredeck has a wide sunken lounge
The flybridge boasts impressive lounging areas, big sunpads and a wet bar, while the foredeck has two separate seating areas across a sunken lounge. The aft cockpit makes the most of the yacht’s 38ft beam and offers a large relaxation zone with a swim platform, dining table and large daybed.
The cockpit includes a daybed to starboard
The saloon offers lots of lounging and dining space with two oversized settees and a convertible table midships. Towards the bow is a fully-equipped bar with a piano and pop-up TV, while the helm station is to starboard.
The saloon features facing sofas
The Sunreef 80 Eco can welcome up to 16 guests during the day and eight guests overnight. The starboard hull houses an opulent, light-filled master suite fitted with a double bed, a walk-in dressing room, pop-up TV, sofa and vanity desk. The generous en-suite bathroom follows the contemporary style of the bedroom.
The central table can be used for dining
The custom layout also includes a large VIP cabin in the middle of the portside hull as well as two identical en-suite guest cabins in the forward part of each hull. The galley is in the aft section of the port hull, provides plenty of storage options and is fully-equipped with restaurant-quality amenities.
The yacht has four guest cabins
Below the main deck, the battery bank consists of custom-engineered batteries combining light weight with outstanding efficiency. Sunreef describe the 80 Eco’s air-conditioning as the lightest, most efficient in the marine industry.
