Sunreef Yachts recently launched the world's most advanced sustainable luxury catamaran. The all-electric Sunreef 80 Eco is a fully-autonomous craft using revolutionary green tech for fuel-free cruising in total silence and luxury. Designed and built to navigate in complete harmony with the elements, the Sunreef 80 Eco is a pioneer in the world of responsible yachting.

Solar Power Redefined

Unique in the industry, the Sunreef 80 Eco's solar power system features ultralight composite-integrated solar panels within the hull sides, mast, superstructure and bimini roof. Using an industry-first technology, the photovoltaic system can deliver up to 36 kWp.

We take a great step forward with this truly pioneering yacht. Renewable energy is the key element in the design of the Sunreef 80 Eco. Thanks to a revolutionary solar power system, hydro-generation and performance sails, the Sunreef 80 Eco provides full autonomy, relying on the sun, water and wind.

Sunreef Yachts Founder and President

Generating Energy Under Sail

The yacht's wind-free propulsion comes from twin 180kW electric engines providing top energy efficiency and performance. While under sail, the Sunreef 80 Eco recovers energy from the passive motion of the two propellers thanks to an advanced hydro generation system. The energy obtained will be used to power both the propulsion and house appliances. The system will be able to generate over 15 kWh while sailing above 7 kts.
