Catamaran Che, the second largest sloop-rigged catamaran ever built – and the third largest multihull in the world – has been listed for sale with Jill Zwaans of Exmar Yachting. Known during her build as Sunreef 114, the 34.8m build is currently based in Greece and is priced on application. She will be either berthed or at anchor for the Monaco Yacht Show later this year.
Che was built entirely of aluminium by Sunreef Yachts in 2010, the same year the yard’s only other 30m+ build, 31.1m Ipharra, was delivered to her owner. The naval architecture, as well as the interior and exterior design were all developed in-house at the Polish shipyard’s facility in Gdansk.
34.8m Catamaran Che
She is designed to be a world cruiser and has done exactly that since her delivery. Her current owners have just finished a circumnavigation and have subsequently listed her for sale. Among the locations visited are the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, Panama, Tahiti, Tonga, New Zealand, Fiji, Bali, Thailand, Myanmar and Singapore, to name a few. In these locations, she has also chartered very well, receiving high demand.
With a beam of 12.8m, she sails with practically no heeling and sits at anchor with little rolling. She has a low draft (2.5m), helping her to reach 12+ knots with ease under her cutting-edge carbon rig and multiple headsails. She has a 47m reinforced Lorima carbon mast, a 390m2 main sail and a 415m2 gennaker, made of the finest D4 material.
In addition to her stability and ensuing comfort, one might also choose a catamaran for the larger living spaces on offer. Che has a huge main salon surrounded by glass and an adjoining, parallel-running state-of-the-art galley; a homely touch for long-range cruises. On the lower deck is accommodation for 7 – 8 guests over three twin cabins and a single cabin with a Pullman berth.
“The owner has spent a lot of money on her maintenance”, commented Zwaans. “The finishing on board is excellent but the crew – together with the owner – have been so on the spot with ensuring her best condition, with constant upgrades and improvements”. In addition to her annual maintenance work, she completed her five-year Bureau Veritas class survey in 2015.
