Sunreef will debut its new 80 Sunreef Power Eco for the first time in the US at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), which runs from 25 to 29 October 2023.
Established in the port city of Gdansk, Poland, and Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE by French businessman Francis Lapp, Sunreef Yachts is a pioneering shipyard specialising in the design and construction of fully-customised catamarans and multihull superyachts.
Named after the Norse sun goddess, the 80 Sunreef Power Sól is an electric luxury catamaran using Sunreef Yachts’ solar power system and state-of-the-art electric propulsion.
Commissioned by an experienced family of yacht owners, this innovative 23.8-metre solar yacht is suitable for both long private cruises and sustainable luxury charters.
The 80 Sunreef Power Eco Sól features composite-integrated solar panels, known as a solar skin, which are seamlessly built into the yacht’s hulls, bimini roof and superstructure to generate power for the 990-kWh battery bank.
All catamarans in the Sunreef Eco range feature custom-engineered battery banks. The Eco range is a line of eco-responsible sailing and power luxury catamarans.
The shipyard says it combines electric propulsion, smart energy management, ultramodern solar panels and ethically sourced finishing materials for a “responsible yachting experience.”
With a density of less than 5.2 kg per kWh, Sunreef Yachts says its Eco batteries are close to 30 percent lighter than the average systems commonly used in the yachting world, making them some of the biggest battery banks in the industry.
The four-cabin luxury catamaran features a custom-tailored layout accommodating eight guests. Sòl’s interiors – penned by the in-house design team at Sunreef Yachts – are relaxing, with plenty of natural light and bright finishing materials.
FLIBS, which is produced by Informa Markets, is the largest in-water boat show in the world. Spanning nearly 90 acres with three million square feet of exhibit space, the annual event in Florida features around 6 miles of floating docks in seven locations.
