The naval architecture and engineering of the 70m mega yacht ZENITH are by Mulder Design and Unique Yacht Design, while her concept design and exterior design are by Andrea Vallicelli and her interior design and decoration are by Focus Yacht Design. Andrea Vallicelli commented: “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.”

Therefore the different rooms create a calm and inviting environment without ever being boring. The design works so well due to the attention that is purposefully grabbed by highlights, which ensure the individuality and purpose of each room. These highlights never compete with each other, but appeal with the overall ambiance on board. They are designed to complement and enhance each other.
