Good news came out of Antalya-based Sunrise Yachts recently. The shipyard, which is currently building a 207-foot (63-meter) yacht and a 148-foot (45-meter) yacht, both with styling by Espen Øino, received two new orders. One is for a second 207-foot yacht and the second for a 184-foot (56-meter) yacht designed for world expedition. The owner, a true ocean lover according to Camper & Nicholsons’ broker Fernando Nicholson, chose diesel-electric propulsion to achieve long-range ability and a lower fuel consumption rate. Two 875-kW Azimuthing E-pod thrusters will propel the yacht, which will have an impressive maximum range of 5,000 nautical miles. Sunrise Marketing Director Jean-Claude Carme says the project is essentially a custom yacht, inspired by an earlier project the shipyard developed with Espen Øino. The interior will be by Franck Darnet, who created the snazzy interior of the first Sunrise Yacht, the 148-foot (45-meter) Africa.
