40m Sunreef Power Superyacht by BMT Nigel Gee
Sunreef Yachts is delighted to announce that it has adopted a new project in its portfolio – the 40-metre Sunreef Power mega catamaran presented by BMT Nigel Gee, a well-known Naval Architecture and Engineering office from UK, a subsidiary of the BMT Group. The design, which was developed in partnership with Design Unlimited, gives Sunreef exclusive rights to market and build the yacht under the Sunreef Yachts brand.
Arising from a spectacular collaboration, this remarkable 40-metre catamaran brings together BMT's extensive experience in the naval architecture and engineering of high speed catamarans with the versatile interior and exterior design skills of Design Unlimited, strengthened by Sunreef Yachts - the world’s leading builder of luxury catamaran yachts.
Final agreement between companies was signed during the Cannes International Boat Show 2010. BMT Nigel Gee has chosen Sunreef Yachts as the exclusive builder of its mega catamaran project appreciating its experience in catamarans and the highest standards of construction as well as strong marketing and extensive brokerage network around the world. The philosophy behind the design has been to create a sporty, spacious yacht that is able to provide equivalent accommodation, facilities and performance comparable to a monohull of significantly longer length. The additional beam offered by the catamaran platform provides extensive interior spaces capable of adaptation for a wide variety of uses and entertainment options.
The baseline option features twin, 1.432kW diesel engines to give a top speed of 20 knots and a range of 2,600nm. A faster model offers a 32 knot top speed using twin diesels to drive waterjets, whilst for those requiring maximum performance, a 41 knot option is available featuring combined gas turbines and diesels with waterjets.
The accommodation spans three decks with the lower deck split across two separate demi-hulls. This lower deck includes crew accommodation to port with cabins for six crew, the crew mess and galley, the laundry area and separate access to the foredeck. The starboard hull contains two large, well appointed, en-suite VIP cabins with the option of converting them into a single, large VIP or master suite.
The main deck features two further en-suite VIP cabins and a gym with side-opening terrace for an indoor/outdoor workout. There is also a large, fully-equipped galley. The full-beam saloon occupies the aft half of the main deck with inside/outside dining options for 12, plus a bar, large comfortable lounging areas and circular sliding doors giving access into the aft sundeck. This sundeck incorporates a feature pool which can also be accessed from the aft hull swim platforms. The upper deck is given over mostly to the owner’s accommodation. A massive owner’s suite incorporates an aft facing central bed which takes in the full width aft view, together with a walk-in dressing/bathroom and large office/study. There is also an option for a private sky lounge. This deck also houses a large en-suite captain’s cabin which has private access to the spacious wheelhouse.
The exterior of the yacht is well planned with generous sunbathing and outdoor seating spaces. The main deck has a large foredeck which houses two 6-metre tenders together with a crane and there is also a lower garage for jet skis and water sports equipment. The yacht can be constructed in either advanced composites or aluminium. This is a significant step in the realization of an exciting design of power megacataran - the 40-metres Sunreef Power line.
