New Sunreef 40M Explorer model

Sunreef Yachts has developed a new 40M Explorer model, designed to take its owners further off the beaten track.

The design incorporates slimmer, more efficient hulls which use less energy to propel them at speed through the water.

The bows are designed to take the sting out of the incoming waves, for a more comfortable experience by reducing pitching and lessening the energy needed to propel the yacht. Alongside the twin 540kW motors with their 10-knot cruising speed, the bows have been designed to be a key part of the Sunreef Explorer Eco’s transatlantic capability.

The boat is built using an ultralight composite and the latest electric powertrain this electric boat.

Sunreef’s proprietary solar skin turns every external surface of the yacht’s hull and superstructure into a power source, generating enough power to run every system on board, from the air con and the icemakers to the jacuzzi and the audio-visual equipment.

Other features include a bathing platform aft, which transforms into a beach club.

Fold-down wings broaden the platform to run round the corner of the boat.

Four guest cabins fill the main deck, while the upper deck is largely devoted to the owner’s suite with sliding doors aft onto the owner’s private terrace.

The boat can accommodate ten guests, supported by seven crew members.

The design was inspired by Explorer and Sunreef ambassador Mike Horn, who was joined by Sunreef Yachts’ CEO in Greenland as part of his ‘What’s Left’ sailing expedition.

“Exploring Greenland under sail with Mike has served as a profound source of motivation for me to continue to act for a sustainable future within the yachting industry,” said Francis Lapp.
