Sunreef Yachts constantly works to find innovative design solutions to reinforce its well established position as world leader in the production of multi-hulled sailing and motor boats. For example, the Polish shipyard recently made the strategic decision to explore a new market niche that it finds particularly attractive with a view to expanding its client offering.
After carrying out a careful in-depth study to prepare a new concept then developing its technical design aspects, in 2010 the company presented a new range of luxurious cruise sailing catamarans with lengths from 22 to 52 metres, or 70 to 170 feet. Calling its new range “Ultimate”, Sunreef hit the international market with a stylish series of ultra-modern, high-performance sailing catamarans with sophisticated lines and environmentally friendly elements. Following the design for the Sunreef 165 Ultimate, to date the flagship of the range, which was showcased for the first time at the major autumn yacht shows last year, the Polish shipyard has now unveiled the most recent model in the Ultimate range: the Sunreef 156 Ultimate.
With an even more dynamic design featuring sophisticated elements created to meet the requirements of a very distinguished client, the all-new Sunreef 156 Ultimate has been devised by Sunreef Yachts’ in-house design team for people who appreciate flawless modern design, a glamorous onboard lifestyle and a sailing experience unlike any other.
Robert Blazejak, the head of Sunreef Yachts’ concept design team, explains: “The elegant and sleek minimalistic profile, extreme proportions and modern colour combinations make the Sunreef 165 Ultimate one of a kind. With its spacious, full-beam interior and exterior living spaces and ultra dynamic, sporty exterior lines, this catamaran is a masterpiece accomplished by Sunreef Yachts’ design philosophy, pushing the yacht design industry to its highest limits.”
Last but not least there is the beauty of the decor: the matte interiors in natural whitewashed wood contrast with polished black elements, while the high-quality fabrics, walls and extraordinary carpets are an expression of quintessential elegance. With a length overall of 47.5 metres / 156 feet and a maximum beam of 19 metres / 62 feet, the new catamaran can accommodate up to twelve guests in five staterooms and one master stateroom, as well as up to eight crew in two crew cabins. Her layout offers impressively large spaces covering a total usable area of 841 m2, equivalent to 9,052 square feet: in more detail, the external areas cover 331 m2 or 3,563 square feet, while the internal areas cover 510 m2 or 5,489 square feet. The vast fly bridge of the Sunreef 156 Ultimate features a panoramic terrace covering more than 142 m2 / 1,528 square feet on its own: this provides abundant space for a sunbathing area with sun pads and a dining area with a table for twelve diners, a grill and barbecue kitchen and the twin external helm station terminals. The vast main deck of the Sunreef 156 Ultimate, which is more like a pavilion villa on the coast than a boat’s deckhouse, has an enclosed garage in the stern to house two waverunners and a tender 6.3 metres / 20 feet 8 inches in length. A covered wheelhouse of 120 m2 / 1,292 square feet precedes the magnificent salon inside, which at first glance is reminiscent of a bowling alley due to its regular shape and generous size. The area of the salon – 255 m2 / 2,745 square feet – is such that it comfortably contains three different functional areas: a living area in a central position with sofas, plus the bar area with bar stools and the dining area with a table and chairs for twelve diners on either side. There is also a practical day head and an abundance of low-level storage units running along the line of the side windows, as well as a tall, transverse storage unit supporting the TV screen and closing like a stage curtain to separate the end of the salon both visually and physically from the wheelhouse with the indoor navigation station. In front of the wheelhouse’s large windscreen there is a front terrace on a raised level, covering 69 m2 / 752 square feet, specially designed to offer maximum functional flexibility. The furniture arrangement has been designed to allow the front terrace to be rapidly transformed from a large sunbathing area with sun pads into a spacious outdoor lounge area with a coffee table and sofa, protected by a large canvas bimini top. Below the raised front terrace and positioned on a lowered level inside, the Owner’s suite has a usable area of 65 m2 / 699 square feet and features a master stateroom with a dressing table, a lounge area with a small sofa and chairs, a walk-in dressing room and an en suite bathroom.
The floor-to-ceiling window at the front offers a spectacular panoramic view and provides direct access to the outdoors on the Owner’s private terrace.
From the terrace, two convenient side staircases lead to the front terrace above and from there to the upper terrace on the fly bridge. As a catamaran with twin hulls, the Sunreef 156 Ultimate has two lower decks: the portside hull contains three guest staterooms, each with a king size bed and an en suite bathroom, as well as the portside engine room and a crew cabin, while the starboard hull contains two guest staterooms, each with a king size bed and an en suite bathroom, as well as the galley, the laundry, the starboard engine room and a crew cabin.
