Sunreef has revealed photos of the first Sunreef 60 Eco, Surreal, which is the second sailing model from the builder’s new solar-powered series. The first Eco sailing model was the Sunreef 80 Eco, Marie-Joseph, which was in Dubai earlier this year and will make its official world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 6-11.
The Polish builder launched Surreal in April in the builder’s home in the north-coast city of Gdansk before recently revealing a selection of sailing, mooring and interior photos showing the shipyard’s latest example of Eco green-tech solutions and luxurious design and décor.
Surreal is the builder’s first 60ft catamaran to be equipped with composite-integrated solar panels developed in-house. On Surreal, the solar panels are integrated into the hull sides, superstructure and flybridge hard top, generating solar power for long, vibration-free and emission-free navigation as well as on-board appliances.
With a thickness below 1mm, the ultralight solar skin is the industry’s lightest and most efficient solar power solution, according to Sunreef. Due to their advanced integration technique, Sunreef Yachts Eco solar panels have a very high resistance to shock and abrasion. Surreal was also fitted with a powerful custom-engineered battery bank.
In terms of design and layout, Surreal is based on the Sunreef 60 and its alfresco relaxation spaces include a full-beam aft cockpit with a big swim platform, a large flybridge with a wet bar and a sunken lounging area on the foredeck.
The custom-designed interiors have a timeless design and include a bright main-deck saloon with a generous lounging area to port and a formal dining area to starboard. The lower deck has a fully equipped galley and can accommodate up to eight guests in a spacious four-cabin layout.
