Sunrise Yachts builds its largest ever project

Sunrise Yachts building largest ever project, Zenith 70

Turkish shipyard Sunrise Yachts are currently building their largest project to date.

70 metre Project Zenith is the first hull in the Sunrise 68/70m line. She was officially presented at the end of 2014 and is scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2017.

Construction of Project Zenith’s high tensile steel hull and light aluminium alloy superstructure at the shipyard’s facility in the Antalya Free Zone in Turkey is almost complete.

An international team of designers are working on this project. Dutch firm Mulder Design and Turkish firm Unique Yacht Design are the naval architects and engineers, with exterior design from Andrea Vallicelli & C, Italy, and interior design from Focus Yacht Design, Germany.

Vallicelli said: “The originality of the style, playing on harmonious contrasts between soft and rigid formal elements, is clearly noticeable in the sheer-line. Moreover, the low angle of the transom slope, reminiscent of a racing sailing yacht, and the long forward overhang help the new Sunrise 70 M Project Zenith to be a very slender yacht, although she has no less than five decks.”

“The Sunrise 70 M Project Zenith will feature a sumptuous contemporary interior, balancing a richness of décor and a contemporary elegance which complements the yacht’s sleek exterior styling” said Focus Yacht Design. “Surprise features will add glamour and fun to the owners’ and charter guests’ onboard experience.”

Project Zenith is currently for sale.
