Marine architects can test unusual hull designs and various stabilizing methods to generate a whole new aesthetic.
Sunreef Yachts’ high-end catamarans are created for demanding clients who expect the highest standards of design, safety and luxury. Its customized yachts combine bold design, energy efficiency, reliability and high performance. The company uses SOLIDWORKS to create the entire design and SIMULIA XFlow to simulate and check the boats’ seaworthiness before the design is finalized. SIMULIA XFlow tests the yacht’s aerodynamics and hydrodynamics, allowing the designers to calculate the power required to propel it at different speeds and in various sea conditions; this determines the engine, propeller and sail design.
New, unconventional shapes can be created and simulated, unleashing the marine architects’ powers of innovation. They can test unusual hull designs and various stabilizing methods to generate a whole new aesthetic.
Sunreef Yachts was founded in 2002, with the aim of creating a whole new market segment of luxury catamarans for private clients. The young company’s approach immediately appealed to many yacht owners, because a multihull is more stable and offers more spacious living space than a narrower, longer single-hull vessel. A catamaran also has greater range, because there is less friction between the hull and the water and, therefore, less drag and better fuel consumption when the engine is being used. Sunreef Yachts' shipyard is located in Gdansk, Poland.
