Sunreef Yachts said today it has launched the second in the expedition series of 70 Power Catamarans; this one named ONDIN and sold to a Chilean couple who plan to explore Patagonia. The long-range yacht will depart the shipyard in Gdansk soon and make a transatlantic passage, followed by a Panama Canal transit and final leg south to Chile.
The extreme range of the Expedition version of the 70 Sunreef Power Cat is a function both of the extreme efficiency of its wave-piercing hull design, and its propulsion system, which features twin Volvo Penta 265 HP diesels, fed from tanks holding approximately 4,227 gallons (16,000 L). Range is 7,000 NM on full fuel tanks at 10 knots. Not only is that more than sufficient for any transoceanic crossing, it’s sufficient to enable the captain to wait for the best price or quality to refuel.
ONDIN features some changes from the first 70, JAMBO, which is currently in the South Pacific. You can read more about JAMBO and the whole 70 Power series here. Most significant is the modification of the giant flybridge to incorporate the helm station in a covered enclosure with direct access to the interior. The aft section becomes an open area for entertaining or outdoor dining with the addition of tables and seating. The standard interior helm station on the mezzanine level has been removed and the area converted to an entertainment zone with seating and LCD TV.[[Show as slideshow]]
