After a short delay due to the coronavirus lockdown in Turkey, the Yildiz Shipyard has just recently delivered 43 metre yacht Sunrise.
She features exterior lines from the drawing boards of Haarlem-based studio Ginton Naval Architects, and a custom interior by famous Milan based studio Hot Lab, which has recently celebrated its 15th anniversary. Hot Lab’s head designer Enrico Lumini commented:
Sunrise is a beautiful yacht for a wonderful family. The interior style reflects the culture, tastes, and status of her cultured owners. The requested style is soberly classic with contemporary details that reflect the exterior lines and satisfy three generations of family members.
I had the pleasure to meet the passionate owner and his wife in Istanbul in the summer of 2017 and in less than an hour we agreed on all the design and contract principles. He has owned three previous yachts and was looking for a family-oriented motoryacht for personal use and thanks to his previous experience was able to provide us with a detailed brief. This was a great help both for us and the shipyard.
The owner, who choose yachting as a hobby for 30 years, said:
I’m accustomed to working with Italian designers and found the young, friendly, client-oriented team very easy to work with. They did a great job and worked very hard with myself and my wife.
The superyacht offers accommodation up to 13 guests and 9 crew members in four lower deck guest rooms and the master stateroom.
Highlights of the boat are a lift reaching all decks, a large seating area in front of the wheelhouse. Many dining areas are located around the main deck and under the sundeck hardtop.
Sunrise has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure. She is powered by two MTU 8V 2000 M72 engines for a top speed of 15.5 knots and a cruising speed of 13.5 knots.
