Tim Ciasulli orders Sunreef Ultima 88
The former powerboat racer has ordered a hybrid version of the largest model in the Polish builder’s new Ultima series.
Sunreef Yachts has been commissioned to build a hybrid Ultima 88 powercat for Tim Ciasulli, the former powerboat racer and multiple world record holder. Designed in-house by Sunreef, the sleek 88-footer with a 30ft beam is the largest model in the Polish builder’s new Ultima series of power catamarans, which also includes 44, 55 and 77 models.
Ciasulli is a serial yacht owner, having owned five monohull superyachts, and the American made headlines in 2021 as the owner of the first Benetti Oasis 40M, Rebeca, named after his wife. However, having raced powercats for much of his life, he has now ordered his first multihull, which offers 4,166sqft of living space across three levels.
Ciasulli said: “Who else builds a yacht that has almost 400sqm of living area where you can cruise responsibly, economically and sustainably on solar-powered electric motors and go 35mph on traditional engines when you need to? I’m thrilled to be a part of this game-changing exciting project where I can have both speed and sustainability on a huge platform!”
One of the yacht’s notable features is a walkaround ‘ocean lounge’, where the large, curved swim platform can connect to two opening bulwarks and offer easy access to water toys.
The yacht will include Sunreef’s solar-skin system and custom-engineered batteries, technology developed for the builder’s Eco range.
Sunreef’s dealers in Asia include Hong Seh Marine in Singapore and Lee Marine in Thailand.
