“A Dream Cockpit to Escape, Explore, Entertain & Enjoy”
As you step into the cockpit — which seems like a small word for what seems more like a sprawling terrace offering plenty of space. And that could not be further from the truth, as this impressive vessel measures 70 feet in length and a whopping 30 feet wide.
Beneath the expansive flybridge overhang — which completely shades the cockpit — there is a large teak dining table for up to 10 guests. There are virtually no limits up to the number of guests you could invite onboard this Sunreef ( A party of 40 to 50 could even fit confortably considering the space!).
There’s a spacious counter / sink under the stairs to the port size and a lounge pad to starboard, which seems like a great place to relax with a book in hand while underway. And because of how vast her cockpit is, she has an incredible amount of storage for your cleaning material supplies / safety equipment / and water toys.
During our sea trial, we were carrying a collection of surfboards, paddleboards, and two kayaks. These toys were stored on the side passageways, which are beyond generous in size. With so much storage area, you could easily take any sort of water sports equipment, (scuba gear, diving gear, seabob, wind surfing, fishing, etc). And of course, there is room for a 4.5 meter tender with it’s great and convenient hydraulic launching system. It’s also important to note that you could bring a jet-ski with you as there is an Opacmare crane on the flydeck to hoist it.
Inside awaits a spectacular surprise.
“It’s As If Someone Built a Luxury Loft Atop An Expedition Yacht”
Walking in here felt as if I just stepped into a two-floor, open concept penthouse.
One of the things you are going to love is the large open space, boasting unusually high vaulted ceilings (note: not often do you find vaulted ceilings in a saloon of a 70 footer!!), and it was without any internal walls (except for the bar which separated the galley).
But what you might love even more is the raised lounge which overlooks the saloon.
Another great thing, huge windows let in an inordinate amount of natural light, freshening and brightening the entire space easily. Whether you are standing or sitting in the main living areas of this Sunreef 70, you’ll always feel connected to the water.
Set within this bright and airy loft is a dining room area which seats 8-10 people easily and is conveniently located across from the widescreen LCD TV 40”.
Overall, the high-ceilings, raised lounge overlooking the saloon, make the saloon — like the cockpit — seem exceedingly spacious.
As for the design of the interior itself, it has a modern yet neutral look — thereby providing you with a wonderful “blank canvas” for you to decorate and design to your taste.
Finished in a combination of genuine Canaletto walnut wood and cream Alcantara.
Now, if you are going to spend weeks, perhaps months, at sea, then you will appreciate the amount of additional storage found throughout the saloon.
We discovered that much of the furniture doubles up as storage.
And what’s more, there are several vast hidden storage compartments in the saloon floor for carrying additional supplies — whether it be more tools, safety gear, food, equipment, and “treasures” you might need while at sea.
And if you are wondering about the galley: it’s a fully equipped kitchen with a very large fridge that will keep you well stocked up on food for your journey.
Here’s a quick run-down of all the kitchen equipment: a four-zone induction cooker, microwave oven, two electric ovens, large refrigerator and freezer, dishwasher, wine chiller, ice dispenser, a bar-top, and of course, more storage. Everything you need to entertain family and friends. And everything you could need or want for spending weeks at sea.
Overall, the galley seems much like the perfect compromise between enclose and open layout: with it’s one one side partially open to the living and dining spaces. Allowing you to be able to entertain and interact with your guests while you cook and prepare food and drinks.
And one of the key features that makes this boat feel so special (and spacial), is the raised pilothouse which opens to the saloon.
8.2745° N, 98.5012° E
Typically, there are two types of people. Those who dream of exploring, and the people who do. And with this Sunreef 70 you can get ready to go anywhere.
From the saloon, you’ll easily make your way up to the raised pilot-house (located mid-ship). While the visibility is not the absolute best compared to the flybridge it is good enough to take a shift at the helm underway.
Set behind a sweeping windshield and to port, you find the internal navigation station — neatly organized with access to your electronic equipment. You’ll appreciate the large touch screens and multiple redundancies.
Located directly behind the helm station, and easily accessible, are steps (which can be closed off by a glass hatch) leading to the favorite spot from which to helm the boat — the flybridge helm station (more on that later).
Now, there are two main reasons why I liked this unique, open-concept, raised-pilothouse setup.
First, to starboard, is a welcoming and cozy pilothouse lounge area — surrounded by bookshelves — which overlooks the saloon dining area and galley. In my opinion, this is a standout feature.
To my surprise, as I made myself comfortable in this lounge area, I caught myself enjoying the seascape that was pouring in from the aft section of the boat.
You see, because of the open-concept loft-layout of the saloon and pilothouse, I was able to enjoy the views of the water through the large saloon windows — all the way from the raised pilothouse lounge. Truly spectacular how Sunreef has managed to accomplish this.
Again, if you love open-concept designs, then this raised-pilothouse situated within the open saloon would be a hit with you.
Secondly, because this pilothouse is raised, it frees up the forward main-deck. Which makes for a much larger master cabin. Speaking of which, let’s head down towards it.
A Super-Yacht Master Stateroom
From the raised-pilothouse, you take a few steps down toward the fore, past the 32-bottle wine chiller, through the private forward passageway, and you will find the unusually large owner’s cabin.
How large exactly? Well, according to Power & Motoryacht magazine the “master stateroom that feels unmistakably like it should be on a mega-yacht.” And I tend to agree.
Because this super-yacht-like master cabin takes nearly full advantage of her 30 foot beam. What’s more, the master is surrounded by a wonderful panoramic sea view (thanks to stunning 180 degree large panoramic windows which surround most of the stateroom).
And, to be exact, she offers 13m2 of room which is tastefully furnished with a king-size bed, desk, sofa, night stands, a 30’ LCD TV, and a tremendous amount of storage provided by two closets and numerous cabinets.
It’s probably fair to say that you could bring everything with you. As would be the case on a mega-yacht.
Having said that, and in my opinion, the wow-factor in this mega-yacht sized master suite comes in it’s multi-level layout.
To port, you will find a set of back-lit stairs leading into the port-side hull where you will find your private ensuite — which looks and feels very much like a chic spa on the water.
Equipped with a his and hers washbasin, enclosed head, walk-in shower, and again… ample amounts of storage in the way cabinets, shelves, and counter space.
This multi-level setup — with your master on the main deck, and ensuite below deck — definitely adds to and enhances that super-yacht sensation.
Now, as for the accommodations for your friends and family….
A Home Isn’t Always 4 Walls, It Can Be 2 Hulls & 5 Spacious Cabins
Inside the two hulls, this Sunreef 70 yacht you will find 4 spacious and well thought guest cabins which comfortably accommodated up to 10 guests overnight. Forward are two VIP cabins with the regular guest cabins to the aft. Each cabin has its very own ensuite, 26′ LCD TV, and ample storage.
The two forward VIP cabins to port and starboard are massive and always have that master cabin feel. Each cabin contains a raised king bed, desk with vanity, tons of storage, and the Sunreef signature windows (which are aligned in such a way that you can view out of them while in bed). As for their differences, the starboard VIP cabin has a head that’s similar to size and feel of the master head. While the forward port cabin has a head similar in size to the aft guest cabins.
As for the aft guest cabins, each contains a queen bed and pullman. Thereby, allowing for 3 people to sleep in these aft cabins.
Now, because of the multi-hull arrangement, there are some unique advantages you get over a monohull.
First, there’s improved redundancy due to the twin engines (one in each hull). As well, because of the spacing between the two-hulls, this eliminates the need for a keel and thereby leaving her with minimal draft… perfect for shallow cruising grounds and reducing significantly the fuel consumption.
Moreover, depending on how large your family is, each hull could be dedicated to one family. Parents in the forward guest cabin, and children in the aft cabins.
As well, another unseen advantage of the multi-hull for long distance cruising is that you are far less likely to “step over” anyone. Why? Because unlike a monohull with one central passageway, two hulls cut foot traffic in half. This may seem like a moot point, but, if you are at sea for an extended period of time, you will appreciate this additional comfort and freedom of movement.
Now, what really makes this Sunreef 70 stand-out is her flybridge.
In The End, You Won’t Remember The Time You Spent Working. Get The Boat of Your Dreams & Explore
Perched above the main deck is something not typically found on a yacht of 70 feet.
Accessible directly from the cockpit via the sweeping steps or from the internal navigation station, is Sunreef’s trademark: the 37m2 flybridge which like the master stateroom feels as if it belongs on a much bigger yacht. The reason for this is because of the 30 foot beam of the Sunreef 70.
On the flydeck you’ll find the second helm station, a cocktail bar with two bar chairs, wet bar, stainless steel electric BBQ, a dining table with sofa and armchairs, sunbathing mattresses and the Opacmarine crane — capable of lifting a jet-ski or water-scooter.
Best of all, there is the perfect place for you and your guests to enjoy your favorite drinks and watch the sun go down from the aft deck jacuzzi (an addon 50k feature on this boat) — which is partially surrounded by a generous spread of sunpads — or relax under the very convenient retractable bimini roof. As would be the case on a much larger super-yacht flybridge.
