Cat's Gone Fishing

From Sunreef Yachts


Sunreef Yachts, a now well-known specialist in power and sailing cats, will be showing an intriguing new concept at the Miami boat show this year: a power cat that is also a sportfish. The shipyard has created this 70-foot sportfisher more specifically for its North American clientele. Fitted with space for fishing gear and a tower, the Sunreef 70 Power Cat takes on another dimension. While this boat will likely not compete with speedy tournament monohulls, it comes with a full range of engine power options from 2 x 455-hp to 2 x 1,001-hp diesels and is capable of a 30-knot speed at the upper end. The enormous deck space allows the boat to accommodate large boxes, bait wells, freezers and fighting chairs. At economical speed, the yacht roams wide, with an 8,000-nm maximum range, allowing the boat to explore the world’s richest fishing grounds with a full complement of family and friends accommodated in four or five cabins. Sunreef will be at the Sails Marina during the Miami International Boat Show, February 17-21, 2011.
