After spectacular launches of five fully customized units from the Sunreef 74 line, Sunreef Yachts is proud to introduce the most technically advanced edition of this model. With carbon bodywork elements and cutting edge rig, the yacht named Dianais a stately sail catamaran offering all the luxury and comfort one could wish for, without compromising the performance.
From the very beginning, the project had specific build requirements and a complex specification list. The extensive use of carbon fiber allowed not only to compensate for the weight of the yacht’s long list of equipment (including two tenders and a Jacuzzi) but also increased Diana’s performance. The yacht was given a carbon deck, flybridge, bulkheads and superstructure. Sunreef Yachts has significant experience in working with carbon, producing carbon masts in-house and having launched the 80ft carbon sailing superyacht – the Sunreef 80 Carbon Line Levante.
The Artemis symbol on the yacht’s sail represents Diana, the Goddess of the Hunt. This tells a lot about the boat’s character. Equipped with state-of-the-art sailing gear, she is clearly the ambitious and adventurous type.
Diana has everything she needs to conquer the world’s oceans. Her rigging includes a carbon mast and an in-boom furling system. The main navigation station is equipped with touchscreens enabling automatic sail adjustments coupled with load sensors to prevent winch, hardware and rig overload.
These solutions provide a redundant, easy and safe control of the sails and rig. The boat also features a large overlapping genoa for upwind optimized performance, a code 0 for reaching and a furling spinnaker for downwind performance. All sails can be easily controlled from the superior helm station, making the boat suited for single-handed operation.
