“Che” is still the largest catamaran to have been launched by the Polish yard Sunreef Yachts. It was built for a European owner and made available to charter parties through the yard’s internal agency Sunreef Yachts Charter.

This Sunreef 114 which still is one of the largest multi hulls sailing today was delivered to its European owner just two years from the beginning of construction. “Che” is the yard’s Custom Line flag ship with Classic Single Deck the interiors of which were partially drawn up by her current owner. In spite of her considerable size “Che” can perform very well while remaining equally comfortable.

Both the hull’s hydrodynamics and the studies carried out on the hydrodynamics of her superstructure coupled to an adequate sail plan with D4 sails translate into speeds of approximately 20 knots even in adverse conditions as she lunges smoothly forward over the seas. Built for recreational and charter use “Che” has been equipped with all necessary technology to improve on board comfort while making cruising easier as well as enhancing manoeuvrability in restricted waters with double bow thrusters and a 3D Furuno Navnet navigation and communication system.

Sunreef Yacht’s in house design studio developed the interiors as requested by the owner’s wife who personally chose fabrics and colour schemes according to Yin Yang philosophy the symbol of which is clearly visible on the yacht’s pink gennaker to enhance feelings of harmony, and well being. Light brown bamboo essences make up the furniture, flooring, cabin soles and boiserie while light grey for the upholstery and turquoise lacquered surfaces stand out in contrast . The layout is a compromise between the rationale dictated by charter work and private use where the central 60 square metre area amidships is shared and dedicated to conviviality.

This area hosts a dining zone for eight , a lounge with coffee table an independent galley partitioned by a glazed panel so as to confer a sense of continuity to the area and to brighten the wheel house with natural light coming through several portholes as well. The large glazed panel supports a Full HD LED 1080 TV set which can be seen from the dining zone as well as from the lounge. An external area of 103 square metres houses the cockpit, with another dining space sheltered by the flying bridge, a sun bathing area with sun pads, and easy access to the sea by way of hydraulically opening steps. The crew and guest cabins are situated in each of the hulls.

The port hull hosts a guest cabin equipped with a 32” LED TV set, wardrobes, private bathroom and separate shower unit. Proceeding forward there’s the owner’s suite with independent access with a 37” LED TV set, DVD player, wardrobes, book shelves, bathroom and separate shower unit. This hull also houses a further cabin in the bow which can be accessed directly from the deck outside for one of the crew.

The starboard hull instead hosts two guest cabins with bathroom one of which with twin beds and a 32” LED TV set and the other is a single with foldaway berth, the captain’s cabin, the crew’s mess/dining area and a further cabin with two bunk beds. The spacious 55 square metre flying bridge overhead is made up of another dining area surrounded by large sized sun pads, a complete helm/controls station with full Navcom system and display.

With charter parties in mind “Che” sports a Yachtline Deluxe 530 Zodiac tender powered by a 115 HP Yamaha outboard, snorkelling gear, a jet ski, two kayaks as well as a series of other inflatable water toys. In addition to the already mentioned TV sets , there’s high speed Wi-Fi internet on board for further entertainment as well as Bose AV Lifestyle 48 sound systems installed in three different areas.
