Sunreef 62 - has anyone seen one?

Watching the market, there are lots of ex-charter Sunreef 62 cats for sale, few of them in 700-800k range, and that's before negotiation. Seems to be very reasonable, at this price usually 56-58ft cats are listed .
Has anyone seen one in person?
These cats have most stuff I like in big cats - flybridge, space, reasonably smart interior, there's no hydraulic dinghy lift, but dinghy still stored on short platform.
Anything wrong in particular with these Sunreefs? If price will keep dropping, one of them might be good candidate for refitting and modifying.

They are all different, with different engines and other stuff. And after all, they are very big cats.

I'm looking for something around that size.
Looked at the S 62 but the major turn off was the lack of island berths.

Are there any other down sides?

Yea, they still have those sail thingies for some reason. Nothing a good grinder can't fix.

Re: Sunreef 62 - has anyone seen one?

Yes it sails. The downside is the availability of moorage that can safely dock this size boat. I have one right across from me in Honolulu. The other concern is the cost to haul it every three years, and if you can find a yard that can accommodate it. Here the owner paid 25K to dry dock it for about two weeks. It's a nice boat, just not practical from my point of view.

I will send you some photos tomorrow, a nice dweling on water, you are going to need some crew to assist passages and mooring

How this can be? $1800 per day? What kind of joke is this?
Also I'm wondering - if it's available, what is approximate cost of hauling out of cat this size?

I would love to read some explanation - why it can't be sailed shorhanded and how many assistants needed to dock it?

Sounds like they may be the same as the big Catanas, so much freeboard that you can't get dock lines on. Too far to try and jump down from the bows even if you're young, the only way off is via the rear steps down the transom of each hull and still an effort to depart on to the dock. The only way to pen one is to reverse in (carefully)

I would question some of this information, do much more research. However, dockage will be more expensive due to beam and also more limited too.

Re: Sunreef 62 - has anyone seen one?

Just looked at the link. Doesn't look as bad as the Catana but any cat that size is going to be a handful in a breeze when docking in a pen. Didn't know Sunreef made such a nice looking boat but it would be too big for me, I do think that you would need a crew of at least 3 to sail and berth it safely.
