Sunreef Launch New 82ft Catamaran

The new Sunreef 82 double deck hit the water last week at Sunreef's shipyard in Gdansk, Poland. Christened 'Houbara', she is the first hull in this new series and will be unveiled to the public at the Cannes boat show in September.

She is constructed out of fiberglass unlike the other double deck catamarans which are constructed out of aluminuim. Houbara will be able to accommodate 7 guests and 2-3 crew, and has been built for an owner to use privately. Within the double deck, there is a spacious owners cabin in the front that is spread out over two levels and a large, bright saloon featuring an internal helm station gives the guests pristine sea views. She is currently going through final out fitting before she hoists her sails and begins sea trials in a few weeks time. Catamarans are starting to become more and more popular for yacht owners due to there large internal volume.
