Sunreef Yachts reports robust year

Sunreef Yachts launched 11 boats (two premieres) this year, has six under construction and opened two international sales offices.

The company announced that 2013 is its best year ever.

Though “intense and challenging for all the Sunreef team, 2013 turned out to be the best year in the 11 years of the shipyard’s history,” Sunreef said.

The shipyard demonstrated a global expansion strategy despite the general slow-down after the 2008 crisis.

The two boats that debuted are sailing catamarans: the Sunreef 80 Carbon Line and Sunreef 60 LOFT. The new sales offices are in Shanghai, China and Dubai, UAE.
