Sunreef Catamaran was established in 2000 Gdansk- Poland by its actual CEO Francis Lapp who was born in 1958, Alsace- France. Lapp entered the yachting world by Sunreef Travels, a travel agency specialising in yacht rentals on the Indian Ocean. And this is what pushed him to get involved in building his own catamarans and luxury multihulls.
The company's first, highly innovative, luxury catamaran, was the Sunreef 74, which was launched in 2003 (the world’s first catamaran with a flybridge equipped with a centralized helm station). The company is now considered as one of the world leaders in the design and construction of large luxury catamarans ranging from from 60 to 200 feet.
