This year during the Monaco Yacht Show, Sunreef Yachts celebrated the company’s 20th anniversary. On September 30th the Yacht Club de Monaco hosted Sunreef Yachts’ anniversary reception which gathered partners, customers and ambassadors for a unique evening celebrating two decades of innovation and excellence. The company seized this opportunity to take a look back at its biggest achievements and to share some exclusive news. Sunreef Yachts’ Founder and President Francis Lapp along with Co-Founder and CTO Nicolas Lapp took the stage to share some exclusive news on a ground-breaking hydrogen yacht project.
Sunreef Yachts was recently commissioned to build an 80-ft sailing catamaran combining hydrogen power and electric propulsion to achieve unrivaled autonomy for a new level of eco-conscious cruising. Hydrogen will be used to power both the appliances and the catamaran’s engines. The yacht will also be using Sunreef Yachts’ patented solar power system with cells fully integrated with the composite bodywork. The company’s R&D department is currently developing a system to use solar power to produce hydrogen on board a catamaran.
