Sunreef Yachts officially opens new manufacturing facility

Sunreef Yachts has officially opened its new manufacturing facility in Ras Al Khaimah.

Developed on a 65,000m² land reserve, the new facility will incorporate the latest technologies in luxury yacht building together with sustainability and energy efficiency features.

Sunreef Yachts and RAK Maritime City are currently working together to carry out the development of the facility, which will be able to offer a 360-degree approach to yacht manufacturing with a modern paint shop, carpentry, upholstery and stainless-steel workshops all equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and latest robotics.

The first manufacturing and CNC halls are currently nearing completion.

“We can now further expand in an environment that merges perfect strategic location, skilled workforce and proactive mindset,” said Francis Lapp, founder and president of Sunreef Yachts.

“The yachts produced in Ras Al Khaimah will elevate eco-responsible yachting to a new level and showcase industry-first technology.”

The new facility is part of Sunreef Yachts’ global expansion strategy, aimed at strengthening the company’s presence in the Middle East and allowing a stronger connection with the Asian and Australian markets.

The first units to be produced in Ras Al Khaimah will be the hybrid ULTIMA catamarans as well as power and sail yachts ranging from 50 to 70ft.

“The Ras Al Khaimah shipyard that we are now developing works hand in hand with our local Dubai office, employing a team of specialists from various fields,” said Munira Lapp, Sunreef Yachts Middle East Director.

“The aim is to form a yachting think tank that will not only anticipate trends, but also shape the future of yachting with creative solutions.

“I believe the RAK facility will be the perfect infrastructure to carry out the most advanced eco responsible yachting concepts.”
