Full disclosure: I’ve had a soft spot in my heart for Sunreef Yachts ever since I visited the historic shipyard in Poland where they’re built way back in 2010. And the large sailing and power catamarans the company builds continue to push the boundaries of what catamaran design and construction can be. In fact, if their new concept catamaran gets built, it’ll be one of the largest private catamaran superyachts in the world.
But, another cool fact is that Sunreef builds ultra-modern yachts that are worth many millions of dollars in the same shipyard in Gdansk, Poland where Lech Wałęsa led a historic communist worker strike in 1980. The trade union he helped found—Solidarity—was eventually recognized as the first non-Communist trade union in the then Soviet Bloc and that turned out to help contribute to the eventual collapse of Communism across eastern Europe.
Demand for Sunreef yachts has always been high. In fact, the company has built over 160 large sailing and power cats since production began in that historic, communist-era shipyard. But I think with the announcement of this new Sunreef Power Superyacht, may drive demand even more.
This 160-foot-long catamaran is 55-feet wide. That may not sound like much but the wide beam allows for massive internal volume and the yachts three-deck design features large outdoor spaces.
According to advanced reports there’s nightclub and a theatre onboard in addition to other amenities that will be geared toward entertaining. “An exciting journey begins for us as we team up with Imperial Yachts on this fantastic project,” Francis Lapp, President, and Founder of Sunreef Yachts said in a statement. “With this new concept, we engage in an ambitious endeavor to build a yacht that the industry has never seen before. ”
Aside is striking exterior lines, the catamaran also affords accommodations for up to 10 guests in large private staterooms and 17 crew that will be on hand to make sure guests have every luxury.
