THE SUN REEF 70 CAT

Talking cats, have you seen the Sun Reef 70 catamaran built in Poland?

www.yachtmarine.com/yachtbuilders/twentythree/

They are presently also building a 102' cat in aluminium.

I know that the Admiral has a low bridge deck clearance. Is there a big problem with slamming?

The Sunreef 70

As you can see from the attached photo, the Sunreef 70 has a heavily 'V' shaped mid-hull which very effectively breaks up the sea, giving a soft ride.

Thank you. I can see that it does. But I can't afford and don't need a 70' cat. I looked at their website. It is too bad that they don't make smaller cats.

I understand, but they also do custom built smaller cats around 44'

Maje..

I can also suggest a very nice 43' cat built in Brazil you might find interesting.
If you are interested I can find out the price for you.

I will make inquiries with Sunreef for a price estimate of a custom build.

Mind if I ask why you'd want to trade to an Admiral, when you have a PDQ 44? You already have one of the best boats built in terms of quality construction.

How do they compare to the St Francis 50 and other liveaboard cats?
Thanks

Catalysis posted that two years ago - they probably got the PDQ and updated their profile.

colemj is correct . I posted the comparison question a couple of years ago and we selected the Anatares 44i about 18 months ago. We are delighted with the Antares.

We don't have a boat at all yet. We will be ready to buy in about three years and are limiting our focus. We will have to buy used. My favorite is the PDQ 44, but we also need to look at other boats.

Paul,

Did you buy used or new?
