One good look at Lucy Z – Sunreef’s latest dazzling launch is all what it takes to understand her nature: she’s a brand new, state-of-the art cat with the heart of an oldie.
Launched around mid-September, she is the hull number 4 of the sleek Sunreef 74 line, introduced only about a year ago. Lucy Z combines all the advantages one can draw from owning a large, freshly-built catamaran with the spirit of a classy traditional yacht. Lucy Z lets you enjoy massive living space, stability, shallow draft and is rigged with cutting edge gear, yet once you step aboard you may feel as if you have embarked on a cruise back in time. The reason for this is the tremendous amount of effort put into the boat’s aesthetics.
Sunreef Yachts specializes in building large, custom-finished multihulls and offers its customers the possibility to personalize their boats’ layouts, specs and looks. Lucy Z’s unique design is the fruit of a close collaboration between Sunreef’s in-house design office lead by its Director – Joanna Szulc and Dana Avriel – designer and architect appointed by the Client for this exciting project. Knowing the Owner’s passion for culture and history for having worked with him before, Dana’s role was to come up with ideas for an authentic marine aspect both to the boat’s exterior and interior. To start with the exterior, Lucy Z stands out with her dark grey hulls. As Dana Avriel explains “the reason for this particular color choice was to keep the boat’s exterior feel in sync with nature and give the hulls a gentle tone somewhat reminiscent of seaweed and the oceans’ depths”. The same principle applies to the boat’s superstructure. The light grey found there is coincident with the greys of the skies so as to keep the yacht in visual unity with the elements. Lucy Z’s flybridge is fully covered in teak and comprises a navigation station with a neatly finished classic wooden dashboard and steering wheel. The spacious sundeck overlooks a vast deck and cockpit, again, fully teak-finished for a timeless and authentic look.
Lucy Z’s interiors - entirely clad in elegant dark wood, will usher you into a majestic back-in-time travel. The cabins and saloon feature a finishing inspired from classic yacht designs with navy-marine upholstery and bed linings combined with brass décor elements. The mahogany grids fixed on the wooden white ceilings are there to emulate battens used in older times. Joanna Szulc – at the helm of Sunreef’s in-house design office explains that the creative process behind Lucy Z involved quite a lot of focus on the materials used “The idea was to implement a soothing interior design bringing to mind the all-time yacht classics on a modern boat. To do so, we put extra focus on the materials, selecting the finest wood for the floors and premium upholstery. We also worked with authentic XIX century lamps, provided by the Owner and adapted them to the electrical system ”.
Entered from Lucy Z’s vast cockpit, the light and airy saloon with its panoramic windows is a true gem with an upright acoustic Yamaha piano installed in the front part of the room. This exceptional feature will add up to the atmosphere of Lucy Z’s future cruises and with the piano placed facing the front window, it is also bound to provide the best musical inspiration possible. Windowsills on this yacht are spacious and provide all the place needed for books and day to day objects. Lucy Z is ready to host a large number of guests with her spacious 12-seat table, a set of 2 poufs and widespread sofa. She is ideal for banquets with her generous wine cooler placed at hand just next to the piano. Guests on board can enjoy more entertainment with the pop-up TV in front of the large sofa.
The fully equipped galley at portside can be accessed both from the main cabin and cockpit. Appliances include a refrigerator, deep freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, hob, drier, a cooker hood and more.
Sunreef cats can be entirely customized when it comes to layout. In Lucy Z’s case the main idea was to come up with a comfortable cabin distribution for lengthy cruises among friends and family. The Owner’s cabin at starboard occupies a vast part of the hull. It features a 200x200 elevated bed, with a mahogany finished platform that can be used as storage. Next to the bed, you will find the most relaxing reading spot including a sofa and bookshelves. The entrance to the stylish bathroom is placed just next to a massive wardrobe. In addition, facing the dressing area is a large make-up desk with drawers.
The starboard VIP cabin comprises a large double bed, a wardrobe and a desk fitted with a mirror. Portside you will find the yacht’s second VIP cabin offering the same level of comfort. One of the boat’s convenient features is the day head easily accessed from the saloon. The portside crew cabin will sleep three crew members on two single beds and an additional Pullman. The cabin’s ensuite bathroom is accessed through a sliding door. Additional accommodation for crew is also available in the forepeaks.
Alfresco dining and lounging is enjoyed in both the flybridge and cockpit. This is where Lucy Z’s guests will be surely spending most of their time aboard. The sundeck is equipped with a large dining table with adjustable height to enjoy meals in the shade and sit back with a drink in hand. The cockpit features a dining teak table, a fridge, ice maker and a sink. Near the saloon entrance, a small coffee table is placed to enjoy your time outside on the L-shaped cockpit sofa.
With over 230 m² of living space, a design made-to-measure and her splendid exterior looks, Lucy Z is surely going to seduce yacht enthusiasts all over the world.
