Although Sunreef began with modest-sized sailing catamaran yachts, its story these days is big, bigger, biggest. It has announced a new order for its Sunreef 90 Power this summer, and recently unveiled the Ultimate 165 sailing catamaran.
Nudged by CEO Francis Lapp, the team is stretching the envelope even further with a 210-foot aluminium trimaran on the drawing board described as ' Adastra on steroids,' with more than 10,400-square feet of living space sheltered within its 75-foot beam. The plan puts the engine room, galley, crew, mess and laundry in the lower center hull.
On deck level, a master suite of staggering proportions is forward with access to its own deck on the bow atop the tender garage. Six cabins radiate out from the centerline main salon—three on each side—with their beds facing opening balconies and full-height windows. The staterooms are literally atop the wings connecting the center hull to the outriggers. The top deck features a large bridge, ship’s office and captains cabin, formal dining for 14 under a sliding roof and an aft deck lounge. The main tender for up to 12 guests and the crew dinghy will be set on the forepeak section. The Trimaran 210 will have accommodations for 18 crew.
Constructed in advanced composites, the Sunreef Trimaran 210 will be powered by four MTU 12V 2000 M84 engines at 1,635hp each, propelling her to a top speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots with a predicted range of 5,000 nautical miles.
