Sunreef Yachts has acquired the exclusive rights to market and build the design for a 40m powered catamaran that was revealed earlier this year by Design Unlimited and naval architect BMT Nigel Gee. When built, the 40m powered catamaran superyacht will be the largest in the world designed and constructed entirely for private recreational use.
Based in Gdansk, Poland, Sunreef Yachts is the leading builder of luxury catamarans. Sunreef Yachts extensive range includes the sailing catamaran Sunreef 150 superyacht which at 46‐metres overall makes it also the largest in its class. Sunreef Yachts has build over 50 yachts in the ten years since its founding and earlier this month showed its first Sunreef 102 (31‐metre) Double Deck IPHARRA catamaran at the 2010 Cannes International Boat Show
The new 40m Sunreef Power Superyacht will have accommodation laid out across three decks and includes four double cabins as well as the full‐width owner’s suite. The Design Unlimited / BMT Nigel Gee 40m motor catamaran has a beam of nearly twelve metres. The saloon and exterior decks offer space for relaxation and entertainment that conventional yachts of this length can only dream of, while a range of engine options can provide speeds of up to 40 knots and over 2,000 nm between fuel stops. The Sunreef 40m powered catamaran will have a draft of just 1.9 metres enabling her to access shallow harbours and anchorages.
The rendering above shows an example how the full‐width saloon / dining area of the exclusive 40m powered catamaran could be laid out.
