Sunreef Yachts - Sail & Power Cats

IŽd be interested to hear from members owning or having knowledge of sail and power catamarans built by Sunreef Yachts. 60-72 feet LOA.

Where did you buy it? Price? Second hand value?
Seakeeping qualities. Hull strenght?

Just bought a Sunreef 62

I just bought a Sunreef 62 and will have it delivered in March 2011. I'm very excited. I researched everything out there in the luxury market. Sunreef appears to be the best.

If you look at the used ones for sale, you can find so many different styles, from japanese style to complete white.

I dont know how good they sail, but i think they are well build. Atleast it looks so. Then it is cheaper then a privilege 615, but a 515 is probably simular as a new 62.

I would like to have a more protected steeringposition like on the privilege, and privilega have the option with a boatwide kingsize bedroom.

If i should look at a boat in this size and class, i should take a look at them AND Privilege.

And Poland CAN build boats today, so many brands in europe build their boats in poland today.

sunreef 62

I bought it new from Sunreef. They start construction next month. It will be ready in March 2011. I went to tour the factory, meet the people and sail on a newly launched 62. I also went on a 70, and a 102. Quite impressive. There are certainly more expensive yachts, but I'm not sure they'll be any better. I have loaded everything on the boat, including 2 generators for redundancy. The 62 we sailed on sailed very well. In moderate 18 knt winds we made 11 knts. And that was while they were just beginning to adjust the sails. I was quite pleased.
