Equipments Build in Sunreef 62

I am considering a 2nd hand Sunreef 62 and would like to know which brands/types of equipment the Sunreef-Yard normally builds into their boats.
A/C, heating, Generator(s), watermaker, winches, windlass, sails.

It would help me a lot to consider if I like it and to estimate how much the maintenance cost could be.
Until now I could not have a personal look at one of their boats, but my impression from photos and some specs is quite OK. Currently I work abroad, but hope to be able inspecting a few boats in winter.

I was also considering a Lagoon 560/620. But after chartering a 440 and inspecting the new 450 on a boatshow, I was very disappointed about the build quality and also the soundproofing of A/C & Generator was not acceptable.
Thanks, if you can provide me with some details on the Sunreef!

You might ask Sunreef ➥ Contact Sunreef Yachts. Leader of building luxury yachts, power boats and sailing catamarans. - Sunreef Yachts

Or the current owner/broker of the particular model that interests you.

Re: Equipments build in Sunreef 62

In many cases the equipment was custom specified. We have worked with a few of them over the years so you drop me a line with the name of the boat and I could probably give you specifics and also put you in touch with any crew who have run her. Many keep a copy of maintenance logs as part of their CVs which can prove to be interesting reading!

You are correct about things like generator noise on french builds, many corners are cut to keep the advertised base price low but there are some excellent aftermarket solutions so don't dismiss the boats completely.

PM me of email tomATsynergyyachtingDOTcom

Cheers
Tom

If you reckon you are spending $1.6 million dollars with a broker in this market, they'll be falling all over themselves giving you all the information you want

And if they won't, for a small fee I'd be glad to run down the info for you.

Re: Equipments build in Sunreef 62

With all the details involved in the purchase of a yacht of this class you are well advised to work with a reputable, experienced international yacht broker. He will take care of these questions, arrange survey and haulout, delivery to haulout. Escrow of funds, assist with insurance, and the many legal points involved with registering (flagging) the vessel. The comission is paid by the seller.

Well put. Normally feel wrong about promoting what we do here but luckily you've done it for me!

Broker fees

As long as we are on the subject, what is the standard commission? Is the international rate the same as the rate in the US MOL. Sorry about the thread drift. BOB

Re: Equipments build in Sunreef 62

There is nothing standard. New boats are dictated by builders and used boat commission should always be negotiated by seller before anything signed as this is reflected in the sales situation.
