Forever Green
The Sunreef 60 is undoubtedly reminiscent of one of her big sisterships, the 80. The exterior lines bear close resemblance, as does the flybridge, the vertical side windows and the coachroof-bimini shape. The interior (2,420 sq ft/225 m²), the saloon and the cockpit merge into the hydraulic platform, which extends them into a terrace. The in-house design team has considerable experience in listening to customers: each unit is different. High rigid bulwarks, and forward interior helm station with panoramic view also characterize this model. The first 60 ECO was launched more than two years ago, and this electric version features revolutionary solar panels. And at a thickness of less than one millimeter, the photovoltaic system can be integrated into the hulls, superstructure and of course on the bimini in order to offer optimal energy production.

The OE60 is perfectly balanced at the helm and offers a subtle compromise between performance and comfort. The manufacturer has opted for daggerboards to reduce the draft to less than 3 feet while ensuring excellent upwind capability. The forward door and the helm station at the foot of the mast are two formulas nowadays adopted by most manufacturers of speed catamarans. The Finnish shipyard’s manufacturing and finishing quality is exceptional.

An ambitions blue water cruiser

The flybridge of the Ipanema 58 was already exemplary, and the one on the Samana offers incredible comfort with its 320 square feet (30 m²). And the aft cockpit, hardly less spacious, won’t disappoint the crew either... This beautiful platform of marine leisure activities will work wonderfully at anchor (charter or private use for large crews) as well as under way for comfortable passagemaking at good speed. Three versions will be available: Lounge Maestro, with an Owner’s Suite and its bathroom, two double cabins, one cabin with bunk beds and three bathrooms; Maestro, with Owner’s ...
