Sunreef Yachts, the trailblazers of eco-responsible shipbuilding, is set to unveil its latest masterpiece - the awe-inspiring 80 Sunreef Power Eco. Get ready to witness a true marvel at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this October!

Established in Gdansk, Poland in 2002, the pinnacle of solar-electric yacht design sets a new standard in the world of luxury catamarans. Within just a year of its inception, it made waves with the world's first 74-foot luxury oceangoing catamaran with a flybridge, and the spirit of innovation has continued to surge.

With over 140 Sunreef Yachts gracefully navigating the world's waters, this prestigious brand has garnered a following from tennis legend Rafael Nadal to Formula 1 champions Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg. As Sunreef sails toward electrification, its latest creation, the 80 Sunreef Power Eco, has already earned the prestigious German Design Award for 2023.

But what sets this solar-powered yacht apart? The 80-foot beauty is propelled by two mighty 360 kW motors, drawing power from a colossal 990 kWh battery bank. Sunreef's engineering mastery is evident in these custom-designed battery banks, boasting an energy density of less than 5.2 kg per kWh, nearly 30% lighter than the standard systems commonly used in the yachting world.

However, the pièce de résistance is Sunreef's revolutionary 36 kWp composite-integrated solar panels. These state-of-the-art solar marvels have been seamlessly integrated into the catamaran's hulls, bimini roof, and superstructure, forming what can only be described as a breathtaking "solar skin" that adorns the yacht.

Stepping aboard, you'll be greeted by pure opulence. The 80 Sunreef Power Eco boasts four luxurious cabins and a customizable layout designed to accommodate up to eight guests. While Sunreef is keeping some secrets for the grand reveal, here's your chance to experience this solar-electric wonder up close and personal at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 25 to 29. It's at this prestigious event that the Sunreef yacht will make its grand debut on U.S. shores.

Indeed, this solar yacht is already earning its title as the "world's most advanced electric luxury catamaran," thanks to its cutting-edge emission-free in-house technology. So, if you're in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area this month, don't miss the opportunity to step into the future of yachting in person.

And if you are living here, come home to your solar powered abode.
