Improve-it = Sunreef 70 Power

After the success of the first fossil fuel engined catamaran, Polish builder Sunreef continue to deliver new 70 Power models which follow the wake of hull number one named Jambo. This latest 70 Power is hull five of the series and is named Ondin. It was ordered by Chilean owners who made their first appearance at the Cannes International Boat Show in 2008, coinciding with the premiere of the 70 Power. The Chilean owners had many reasons in choosing a power catamaran but the most important was the seven thousand nautical miles long range in 21 metres, low fuel consumption, and Sunreef custom finish philosophy. The latest 70 Power has been purpose built for long travelling around Southern America, especially Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. This 70 Power accommodation will have a home feeling furnishing, offering a total of eight guest and two crew berths on the lower deck. It also features a first for this model thanks to a partially three sides covered flybridge. Ondin just as hull one will also feature underwater bulbs which are one of the differences between a standard 70 Power and the expedition version, making her a comfortable cruising and explorer vessel. Power is from twin Volvo 265hp, which give a 7000 nautical miles at 10 knots and the full consumption of the total 16000 litres fuel capacity. The latest 70 Power will now cruise straight towards Central America and cross the Panama Channel from where she will cruise down to her home in Chile.
