Sunreef extends Ultima range of powercats
The Polish luxury catamaran builder has added the Sunreef 88 Ultima to its new range of dynamic hybrid powercats.
After releasing designs for its 55 and 44 Ultima hybrid power catamarans, which it plans to build in its upcoming UAE production facility, Sunreef Yachts has released designs and details of its 88 Ultima, which offers almost 4,200sqft of living space and is the first model in the range to feature a flybridge.
The 88 Ultima’s hybrid propulsion system includes Sunreef’s own solar-power system and custom-engineered battery banks, while the slim 88-footer has a beam of just 30ft, compared to the 39ft-plus beam of the much shorter 80 Sunreef Power.
“Combining the best of monohull dynamics with multihull living space and shallow draft, the Sunreef 88 Ultima creates a new type of marine architecture,” Sunreef stated.
“With a sleek and sporty hull, she guarantees easy access to any marina, while her advanced design reduces drag for enhanced performance and energy efficiency. Sunreef 88 Ultima is a sleek supercat engineered to deliver the ultimate blend of speed, sustainability and comfort.”
The all-new naval architecture has enabled Sunreef to develop full-beam living spaces on the lower deck, which includes a full-beam master suite forward with the option of a private sauna, up to four more guest cabins, three aft cabins for five crew, and a large galley to port.
The stern starts with a huge platform that includes a curved, high-low aft section that can carry a tender, plus two fold-down double sunbeds either side of a garage that can fit a jet-ski and more toys. Long drop-down bulwarks can be deployed to create a three-sided Ocean Lounge by the water.
Two stairways either side of the garage lead up to an extra-long cockpit that begins with a central island sunpad, features an L-shaped sofa and a dining table to port, while to starboard is a large sunpad, wet bar, day head and flybridge stairs.
The interior starts with formal dining to port and a small lounge to starboard, while beyond the lower-deck stairways are a saloon with pop-up TV to starboard, opposite an open galley to port. The saloon area is designed to reduce artificial lighting and air conditioning, while the interiors use sustainable woods, recycled plastics and reclaimed fabrics.
The 88 is the first Ultima with a flybridge, which features a helm station and a wet bar to starboard, while to port is a lounge forward of an athwartships dining table, all covered by a hard top. Options for the uncovered area aft can feature a full-width sunbathing area or a half-width version and space for gym equipment.
Sunreef’s dealers in Asia include Hong Seh Marine in Singapore and Lee Marine in Thailand.
