Emboldened by the popularity of its recent 70, Sunreef is now building another powercat. Though a bit smaller, the 60 will still have many features and amenities of her big sister. One advantage the 60 will have over the 70 will be her decreased beam (from 30'6" to 27'10"). While losing interior volume may seem like a drawback, it’s important to remember that a boat with this much beam will still have plenty of room for you and your guests—and it will be that much easier to maneuver around crowded marinas.
Hull No. 1 has been commissioned by a European owner who has chosen to put two en suite cabins in the forward section, two double cabins in the starboard hull, and a final cabin in the port hull. Not that you’d want to spend your time onboard this cat asleep. With optional twin 800-hp MAN diesels, she will reportedly be able to achieve a top speed of 29 mph, a cruise speed of 23 mph, and a range of 4,600 miles.
Topside on the 60’s abundantly expansive sundeck—a proud trademark of all Sunreef designs—you’ll find the external helm station, as well as a bar, dining area, and of course, a giant sunpad perfect for relaxing. After all, what good is having all that beam, if you don’t have a place to stretch out?
