[one_third]Sunreef  is the shipyard that offers the broadest range of the market today. It was founded by Francis Lapp, a French businessman who, after having fallen in love with multi-hulls and having realized that there were no luxury catamarans able to support his idea of navigation, decided to establish his shipyard in Danzig, Poland, in 2002. In 2003, the company launched the Sunreef 74, the world’s first catamaran with fly bridge. Since then, the growth of the shipyard has been unstoppable. In 2008, the first motor powered catamaran with double deck and oceanic range the 70 Sunreef Power Jambo designed in co-operation with French sailor Laurent Bourgnon was launched. In 2013, the first catamarans with Volvo Penta IPS propulsion were introduced with the 60 Sunreef Power Lilu. In the same year, the rendering of a 210-foot trimaran with a usable surface of 1000 square meters was unveiled. xThe Sunreef 75 Power Sportfish is an alternative option to American fishermen, equipped with a tuna tower and an astern console. The latest creation is the Sunreef 80 Power, a 24-meter boat offered in 8 different interior layouts, from 3 to 5 guest cabins and a master suite positioned on the main deck, as on the latest megayachts.
