Headquartered in Gdansk, Poland, superyacht builder Sunreef Yachts manufactures luxury sailing and power catamarans from 18 to 61 metres in length.
History of Sunreef
Yachting started out as a leisure pastime for French Alsatian entrepreneur Francis Lapp, manufacturer of electrical and industrial equipment, who founded HTEP POLSKA, Ltd. in Warsaw, Poland, in 1992. After purchasing a luxury sailing catamaran for pleasure, he opened luxury yacht charter agency Sunreef Travels. In 2002, Lapp founded luxury yacht builder Sunreef Yachts in Gdansk in order to manufacture sailing catamarans for his yacht charter business. Luxury yacht builder Sunreef’s first yacht launched in 2003: the 22.5M sailing yacht Sunreef 74, an oceangoing catamaran.
The shipyard added luxury power catamarans to its line, and over the years, the innovative yachts they launched grew larger. In 2010, luxury builder Sunreef Yachts delivered their first two superyachts exceeding 30.48 metres, custom luxury sailing catamarans Ipharra and CHE.
