Sunreef’s New ‘Sunreef 82 Houbara’ Superyacht Sets Sights and Sails on Caribbean Waters

Gdansk, Poland – reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

In an ocean swimming with massive and cumbersome superyachts, chugging inefficiently port-to-port, Sunreef’s newest launch, the Sunreef 82 Houbara, is a welcome downsize. With its svelte figure and catamaran design catching both eyes and wind, the 82 Houbara is sure to fit eco-minded travelers and smaller charter groups like a water-proof glove.

Representing the first composite superyacht from Sunreef, the Houbara, though not officially launched until September’s Cannes International Boat Show, has already made waves with its stylish hull and compact amenities. The vessel, being the latest entry into Sunreef’s Modern Double Deck line, accommodates seven guests and up to three crew members, housing them comfortably upon two well-appointed decks. A spacious owner’s cabin dominates the lower deck while a sea-view saloon featuring an internal helm makes the upper-deck the Houbara’s designated social headquarters. Despite these amenity-adorned quarters, however, it is the master-suite that truly commands attention. The 344- square-foot space sprawls across the Houbara’s two levels, showcasing its Jacuzzi, walk-in wardrobe and two lower-deck bathrooms proudly.

Amid all this luxury, however, the Houbara also boasts surprising functionality and versatility. Thanks to the yacht’s catamaran construction and functional cruising sails, the Houbara can tackle big ranges while consuming a surprisingly small amount of fuel.

A truly luxe and liberating alternative for those looking to break free of traditional superyacht conceptions, the Sunreef 82 Houbara (designed specifically for private use) will be trolling Caribbean and US waters come the fall.
