Catamaran yacht Houbara launched by Sunreef

2012-07-29By Raphael Montigneaux

Ordered in spring 2011, the Sunreef 82 DD (double deck) started taking shape in spring 2012, and was finally launched this weekend. This 25m catamaran yacht has been named Houbara.

Houbara was entirely designed by Sunreef’s in-house teams. Her double decks allow space for an owners’ suite on the main deck, a large, bright saloon and a raised pilot house. The interior will accommodate seven guests in three cabins: a master suite on the main deck with spa pool and gymnasium, a double cabin and a twin with a Pullman.

The mast will measure 34 metres, and the yacht will be powered by twin 355hp engines giving a top speed of 12 knots.

Following this technical launch, Houbara will undergo final fitting out, before her maiden voyage to France where she will make her debut at the Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes this September.
