Polish multihull specialist Sunreef Yachts has signed an order for Sunreef 43M Eco, which is set to become the world's largest electric catamaran.
The 43M Eco was first revealed in January 2022 as the newest addition to the shipyard's Eco fleet. The sale of the first hull, billed as the "ultimate eco sailing catamaran", was completed by Tim Quinlan at Ocean Independence and confirmed at the Monaco Yacht Show 2022.
The hull, superstructure and rigging of the vessel feature integrated solar panels supplying the yacht with green energy while an advanced hydro-generation system produces clean power, for emission-free cruising and "infinite range", according to the shipyard.
Highlights of the 43M Eco include a large 'ocean lounge' aft that ties the aft deck, swim platform and fold-down balconies into a single space for waterside lounging. The area can be customised to the requirements of each owner with the addition of a massage room, a bar serving drinks to guests or a fitness area. Tenders and toys can be stored in the yacht's invisible aft garage.
A second sun lounging option can be found up on the flybridge with a spa pool and oversized sun pads, a bar and dining area and an outdoor cinema.
The shipyard also took the opportunity of the Monaco Yacht Show to celebrate its 20th anniversary and also announce a 24 metre sailing catamaran that combines electric propulsion with hydrogen power.
