Sunreef Hull Completed

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Most of the aluminium hull construction of one of the largest luxury catamarans in the world, the Sunreef 114, has been completed at Sunreef Yachts of Poland.

This 31 ton, 114 ft lopng hull was turned and repositioned inside the shed so that the hull structure can be straightened and the next phase of the building process can be started.

At present, a number of construction tasks are being performed simultaneously: the fly-bridge is being built and will be shortly assembled with the hulls, the construction of interior furniture has now started and all final aluminium fitting-out is being done. Once the fly-bridge is fixed on the hulls the insulation of the accommodation area in both hulls will start. Floor support construction and the first electrical systems will follow next. After that, all furniture will be installed and general finishing work will be completed. Sunreef 114 is scheduled to be launched in winter 2009.

Sunreef Yachts is the only shipyard in the world to build simultaneously two catamarans over 100 ft.
