Sunreef Yachts has just launched Blue Reef Yachts, a new brand on the motor yachts market specializing in medium-sized practical and rational monohull power yachts. In response to demanding clients with a passion for traversing the seas, BLUE REEF will offer a range of timeless, comfortable and easy to handle yachts without crew designed by top experts harnessing the full experience and know-how developed to date by Sunreef.
This Blue Reef Yachts creation is the result of a strategic partnership between Sunreef Yachts and CDR Yachting based in France, Bordeaux. CDR YACHTING will lend its expertise in the design and sales of this new power yachts range. The team composed of Pierre Couach, ex sales director at the Couach shipyard, Vincent Duchatelet , naval architect and Franck Reynaud, exterior and interior designer have launched hundreds of motor yachts over the last twenty years, which is the guarantee of the future joint success of this venture.
Both companies have noticed that the demand for boats that are technically reliable, aesthetically elegant and destined to navigate in comfort without a large crew is still unsatisfied. This is the reason why they have decided to join forces and form a partnership launching a new range of yachts, an offer geared towards owners wanting to explore the Mediterranean and traverse the seas docking at small, local marinas that cannot accommodate large superyachts.
The very first yacht in the range currently being developed by CDR YACHTING is the Blue Reef 85′ – an 85′ motor yacht with marine hull, highly efficient for cruising speeds of 20 knots with 20-30% reduced fuel consumption in comparison with other yachts of the same size. The on-board space will be optimised in order to provide comfortable, ergonomic and luxury interiors. The compact exterior space is designed to ensure easy operation and anchorage in small ports, which are ever so prevalent in the Mediterranean. The first units are due to be launched in Winter 2010.
The Blue Reef Yachts website, www.bluereef-yachts.com will be available for viewing from August 2009.
