    The Sunreef Supreme 68 Eagle Wings is the first launch within the new Sunreef Supreme Range. This spectacular sailing catamaran was premiered at this year’s Singapore Yacht Show and attracted a lot of attention. It was the first time the industry has seen a sailing catamaran under 24 meters in length with a total living space equaling 300 sqm - the kind of comfort you would normally expect to find on a superyacht.

    I don't know what others think, but I personal think it is an UGLY design !

    +1 for UGLY.
    Looks like it has no clearance from bridge deck to water besides looking like you tried to put sails on a concrete block house.

    Will that small of a rig even overcome the aero drag?

    To each his own.

    I agree with you. That superstructure looks like it was assembled from leftovers of a house construction yard.
    Doesn't look like a boat made for seas.

    It's a sailing houseboat. Possibly a motor-sailing houseboat with all that windage.

    Ever seen pictures of a Corvette station wagon conversion? And, yes, I had to use an "a" rather than a "the" in that sentence....

    If you are on board all you see is lots of big tall windows so you don't notice how ugly it is.

    It's a big chunk of coastal real estate that won't flood from global warming.
