Sunreef’s latest model may be its sleekest yet.
The new Ultima 77 features a new sporty hull designed to reduce drag while improving performance and energy efficiency on the high seas. In addition, Sunreef says the shallow draft guarantees easy access to any marina.

“We now have the ultimate hull shape for all those who are looking to enjoy quick getaways in speed, comfort, and style,” Sunreef founder and president Francis Lapp said in a statement. “To achieve this, we combined the best of the multihull and monohull design philosophy.”
The 77 is the fifth catamaran in the Ultima range, joining the existing 44, 55, 66, and 88 models. A response to new owner demands, the cat is focused on sustainability, speed, and space. To that end, the newcomer is equipped with a high-tech diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system that is cleaner and quieter than traditional gas-powered setups.
Sunreef didn’t share any details regarding range or speed, but Ultima cats typically showcase the Polish yard’s signature “solar skin” that provides an endless supply of clean energy. Ultimas also pack ultra-efficient batteries that are 30 percent lighter than other systems that are commonly used in the yachting industry, according to Sunreef.
The slim hull has been optimized for cruising, with weight, aerodynamics, and balance carefully adjusted for greater drag reduction. The composite hull is also finished with ultra-slick bottom paint to help it slice through the ocean. Sunreef says the 77 can even be fitted with computer-controlled hydrofoils that will allow it to “fly” over the waves with less drag and more velocity than a traditional planing yacht.
With a beam of 27 feet, the yacht offers a generous amount of space onboard (about 3,272 square feet). The light, airy interiors can be customized by the owner, naturally. Options include a spectacular full-beam owner’s suite, according to Sunreef. Speaking of accommodation, the cat can sleep up to 10 guests in total.
The standout feature of the 77 is the stern, though. The sprawling aft deck sports fold-out bulwark platforms for additional space and a Jet Ski garage that doubles as a sun pad. Not to be outdone, the flybridge is home to a vast relaxation space with a Jacuzzi and lounges. The foredeck offers more room for chilling still, with two giant sunbeds.
The hard part will be deciding the best spot for sundowners.
