Sunreef Yachts Reveals Hydrofoil System For Luxury Catamarans
Published: Friday, 19 September 2014
Sunreef Yachts had lots to share at this year's Cannes Yachting Festival Sept 9-14. Sunreef’s naval architects have developed a system of retractable hydrofoils that lift the vessel out of the water, significantly reducing drag. The first model to be fitted with hydrofoils will be the Sunreef 40 H – an open 40-foot motor catamaran. The ride remains comfortable, even at speeds of up to 70 knots.
Sunreef also presented the Sunreef 74 with its carbon mast construction. The yacht can be handled easily by only two people. Four models have already been sold.
The 60- and 70-foot Sunreef power catamarans were also launched. Both have custom interiors. Owners can choose open or semi-open saloons.
