Builder of Catamarans Undeterred by Shipyard Fire

At any rate, fire halted production. This happened at the shipyard of a builder of luxury catamarans.  The company President says it’s business as usual just 5 days later.



The fire on January 19 did not stop production for long.  The catamaran manufacturer started rebuilding lost units within 5 short days. Some yachts under construction were destroyed.  Key molds were saved, however, and the shipyard adapted another production hall right away.  Above all, the molds moved to the new site, and business resumed.

Production was recommenced on January 23rd, and Francis Lapp, President of Sunreef Yachts, is,

“…confident any delays in delivery due to the fire will not exceed 3 months.”

Interest in crewed catamaran charters has increased dramatically in the past 5 years, thanks in part to the roominess and stability of these multi-hull vessels, as compared to their monohull counterparts. 

Sunreef Yachts is a leading designer and builder of luxury sailing and power catamarans in the 60 to 80 foot range. The company is known for its commitment to building yachts with luxurious accommodations, expansive living spaces, and  innovative designs.



Currently in service as Caribbean yacht charter vessels are Sunreef 62 sailing catamaran CATSY, Sunreef 70 power catamaran DAMRAK II, and Sunreef 70 sail catamaran SEAZEN II.



In conclusion, enjoy the comfort and space of a wide-body catamaran for your next Spring or Easter yacht rental.  Contact the 1-800 Yacht Charters catamaran specialists at for list of available cats in the Caribbean.
