Earlier this week, Fairline shared a teaser of its Squadron 58, which is slated to debut at the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival. It’s still quite some time away, but we can at least look forward to what Sunreef has in store for us next month. Gracing the prestigious show is the 80 Eco with its innovative sustainable technology.
Ahead of the event, Sunreef takes the new ship out to sea to show off just what it can do. The silhouette it cuts is just like that of the shipbuilder’s usual catamarans, but a towering carbon mast hints at what else it can do. For a completely emission-free means of propulsion, owners can electronically unfurl the sails.
The company specializes in twin-hull blueprints which present the 80 Eco as a 78.3-foot catamaran. This type of watercraft is great for clients who desire a lot of space. With a beam measuring 37.8 feet wide, their interior designers are working with a generous blank canvas.
For this build, Sunreef dedicates the starboard hull for the master suite. It houses a double bed, a pop-up TV, a walk-in closet, a sofa, a vanity desk, and a huge ensuite bathroom. Meanwhile, the opposite hull of the 80 Eco holds a VIP cabin. The forward sections of both volumes feature identical guest cabins each.
Climb up the 80 Eco flybridge to access sunbeds, a wet bar, and treadmills for those who want a workout. The main deck features a saloon, a galley, a dining area, a piano, a bar, and a pop-up TV. 1,720 square feet of solar panels on the composite mast, roof, hulls, and other surfaces. These constantly recharge the battery bank for fully electric propulsion.Learn More
