Five years after delivering motor yacht ‘Africa’, Sunrise Yachts is proud to confirm the launch of her sister ship, the brand new 45-metre motor yacht Project Sunset (Hull #182). Superyacht Project Sunset (Hull #182) hit the water in Turkey’s Antalya last week. The yacht’s name will remain confidential until delivery to her North-American client, scheduled for next month.
The Sunrise 45m super yacht Project Sunset is a three-deck, deep-sea, full displacement, transatlantic, steel hull and aluminium superstructure luxury motor yacht, built to operate for private use or luxury yacht charter in all seas and oceans of the world.
The Project Sunset yacht’s main characteristics include large volumes at 499 Gross Tons, excellent deck heights, great stability, comfort and seaworthiness, very low levels of sound and vibration, an affective layout, and extreme fuel efficiency.
A full-length technical tunnel running from the engine room to the bow-thruster compartment – an unprecedented feature on yachts in this category until the launch of the first vessel in the series, M/Y “Africa” – provides easy access to tanks and systems at bilge deck level.
The interior design of luxury yacht Project Sunset is entrusted to the talent of Nantes-based Franck Darnet Design, who had previously designed the interior for M/Y “Africa”. In sharp contrast with the first Sunrise 45m’s dark tropical woods, “Hull 182”’s contemporary and elegant décor will feature light veneers and a bright colour scheme.
Guillaume Roché, the Sunrise Yachts CEO, stated: “Just like M/Y “Africa” was one of the “star” yachts when introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show, we are confident that the new 45m will be one of the most notable yachts delivered worldwide this year in its category. We believe that the yacht further demonstrates our commitment to excellence and to continually improving our standards while remaining a competitive alternative to quality European builders.”
