Everyone wants catamarans. The reasons are quickly stated: convenient, spacious, and with all the technological simplifications of our times, it is also a breeze to maneuver. Just think that even Rafa Nadal, the tennis legend, bought himself a 24-meter catamaran last summer, just a Sunreef. And always the Polish shipyard is preparing to revolutionize the world of two-hulled powerboats. The Sunreef 49M will be one of the largest motor catamarans in the world.

How? With the Sunreef 49M, one of the largest ever built, 49 meters as the name suggests, the one you see renderings of in the photo. Under construction at Gdansk shipyards, it will be ready in 2021 for a client represented by Imperial Yachts. A superyacht, with two hulls, designed for very long sailings. On a 90,000-liter fill-up it will be able to travel about 5,000 nautical miles. Basically you could do (as the crow flies) from Milan to Cuba, without ever stopping. At 49 meters long by 16.85 meters wide, it will be powered by two engines of 3,400 horsepower each.
