In 2013 Sunreef Yachts together with Volvo engineers developed an IPS system installed for the first time in a power yacht, the 60 Sunreef Power.
This year at a client’s request, Sunreefs` specialists installed the IPS system in 70 Sunreef Power 1 Life to ease manoeuvring and accommodate side cruising and easy turning with just one joystick.
Despite being widely used on regular motoryachts, they are very uncommon on catamarans, especially large-sized yachts in which the shipyard specializes in.
Moreover, the system helps to be even more efficient on the fuel consumption side. To maximize performance 70 Sunreef Power 1 Life is equipped with wave piercers on both hulls.
A special hydraulic platform is another innovation in 70 Sunreef Power 1 Life. The device, manufactured by French company Tenderlift, enables rapid exit of inflatable boats, scooters, skis etc. The platform, powered by a hydraulic system, is very light, simple and quiet in use. Lowered to 600mm underwater, it can carry devices up to 450 kg. Moreover, it can stop in any position on every level. The platform dimensions are 4300 mm x 1780 mm, and it weighs only 100 kg, so that it does not affect the boat’s performance and can be fitted on every unit.
