Sunreef Yachts presents the new custom catamaran 80 Sunreef Power Eco

The 80 Sunreef Power Eco made her official US debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2023. With a strong focus on eco-responsible yachting, Sunreef Yachts Eco presented the world’s most advanced electric luxury yacht at the world’s biggest in-water marine event, October 25-29. Named after the Norse sun goddess, the 80 Sunreef Power Sól is an electric luxury catamaran using Sunreef Yachts’ revolutionary solar power system and state of the art electric propulsion. Commissioned by an experienced family of yacht owners, this exclusive solar yacht combines long private cruises with sustainable luxury charters.

Using Sunreef Yachts’ in-house developed green technology, the 80 Sunreef Power Eco Sól features composite-integrated solar panels, seamlessly built into the yacht’s hulls, bimini roof an superstructure. The ultra-thin ‘solar skin’ consists of the industry’s most efficient cells and is one of the lightest photovoltaic systems in the world. Covering 200m² (2 150 sq ft) the system delivers 36kWp for a steady supply of clean power on board.

The Biggest Battery Bank

Sunreef Yachts Eco catamarans feature custom-engineered battery banks. With a density less than 5.2 kg per kWh, Sunreef Yachts Eco batteries are close to 30% lighter than the average systems commonly used in the yachting world. Boasting a 990kWh battery system, Sól has the biggest battery bank in the category of leisure crafts up to 24m. Powering all the amenities on board as well as the twin 360kW engines, the batteries allow for up to 300 nautical miles of e-motoring in complete silence, with no fumes and no vibration. With an energy-saving air conditioning system and smart energy management, this electric yacht sets new standards for eco-cruising.
