The custom-built 24.4m Sunreef 80 Gaya sailing catamaran was handed over to its owner in Gdansk,Poland, on November 28th. The composite boat, with a total sail area of 773 square meters, successfully passed the sea trials inthe Baltic Sea.
The Gaya's owner is an experienced man who already had a classic 70' Sunreef model. He decided to upgrade to a larger yacht which is larger, more luxurious and suited to his ambitious sailing plans.
Besides mainsail, genoa, gennaker and jib, she will be propelled by two 280 hp engines. The catamaran will store 6,000 litres of fuel for them.
The main striking accent of Gaya is her dark blue hull.
Elsewhere Sunreef Yachts ' design team has opted for a stylish monochrome look with a silver exterior superstructure, black masts and boom, while the interior comes in pastel shades of greyish beige and black.
The catamaran has a total living area of 340 square metres. Gaya is expected to host four crew members and eight guests in four cabins. The main pride of the master cabin is the black quartz-finished bathroom.
On the same level with the cabins, inside the left hull, there is the galley. Gaya's creators paid a lot of attention to storage spaces. Amidships will include a separate pantry and a wine rack.
On the main deck, the saloon and dining area are situated in the superstructure and the aft cockpit. There is a large table for guests to gather around, a wine fridge, a wet bar and a 55" retractable TV. Panoramic glazing allows sunlight to enter the salon.
The cockpit includes a table large enough to seat eight people for dinner. In addition to the forward platform, the aft hydraulic platform can be used as a seating area when the tender is lowered from it.
Sunbathing and fitness facilities are available on the flybridge. For this purpose, both sunbeds and sports equipment are installed there. It is also where the catamaran owner and his guests will barbecue.
Gaya is the second vessel in Sunreef's 80-foot series. Earlier this year, the shipyard delivered the first Sunreef 80, named 7X.
