First Sunreef 88 catamaran sold and in build
by Chris Jefferies
The first hull in the Sunreef 88 range of sailing catamarans has been sold and is currently under construction in Gdansk, the Polish yard announced at last week’s Cannes Yachting Festival.
In a statement, the Polish yard added that the design of the Sunreef 88 is “a great display of the shipyard’s non-conformist attitude and a genuine example of an avant-garde sailing catamaran concept”.
The design brief was focussed on three key themes: luxury, performance and privacy. To this end, the Sunreef 88 will feature more than 300 square metres of living space — an impressive figure for a yacht of this size, proving that bigger isn't always better.
This two-deck sailing yacht will feature an extensive flybridge with a central helm station and plenty of al fresco dining and relaxation spaces. Back aft, the cockpit features a central dining table with seating space for ten guests as well as a second sunbed.
This in-house design includes sporty and dynamic exterior lines, as well as a fully customised interior layout. The total number of cabins has yet to be revealed, but the numerous rectangular portholes should ensure plenty of natural light below decks on the Sunreef 88.
Sunreef added that the designers drew inspiration for this single-masted sailing yacht from the 35 metre flagship yacht Che, which was launched in 2010. The Sunreef 88 will be the sixth superyacht from the Polish yard, which has also spawned the Sunreef 90 and Sunreef 102 ranges.
