Sunrise Yachts

Extensive package of valves for Turkish mega yachts

Currently, two dazzling mega yachts will be launched from the shipyard of Sunrise Yachts in Antalya, Turkey. Following fruitful cooperation between Econosto and its Turkish agent Nemomarin - which represents various top brand suppliers in the maritime sector - Econosto was awarded an extensive order for the delivery of a total package of accessories for both mega yachts, which will be delivered early next year and early 2016.

Largest yachts in the history of the shipyard

Sunrise Yachts - founded in 2006 and based in Antalya, Turkey - is one of the largest and most modern shipyards for mega yachts in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. The yacht builder has two assembly halls of 11,000 m2 and 9,000 m2 respectively and it can build three yachts of up to 70 metres simultaneously. Build numbers 601 and 632 that are currently under construction are two wonderfully sleek mega yachts, each with a length of more than 63 metres, making them among the largest ever built in Turkey. The design of both of the yachts is based on the same hull and the same technical platform, but the finish for each yacht is unique. The most remarkable aspect about the design is the volume, which makes these yachts among the largest in the world in their length class.

High quality requirements

“These mega yachts obviously come with a hefty price tag. In order to guarantee its market value for the future Sunrise Yachts only uses top brand components and systems,” explains Hilco Oortwijn, International Sales Manager at Econosto's Maritime Business Unit. “

“Econosto has an excellent reputation when it comes to accessories and marine systems - especially with the luxury yachting industry. That is not only because of our wide product range, but also because of the good value for money we provide and our years of expertise that enables us to deliver the necessary technical support. That has certainly bolstered our position in the negotiation process.”

Appreciation for collaboration

Oortwijn also underlines the value of Econosto's agent Nemomarin from Istanbul: “During the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) in Amsterdam last year Nemomarin and we received representatives from Sunrise Yachts and we managed to strengthen our ties during that occasion. We certainly also have our agent to thank for acquiring this order.”

Extensive product range

Econosto supplied the following products and systems for both of the Sunrise Yachts mega yachts:

  • Bronze coarse filters
  • Aluminium-bronze butterfly valves
  • Bronze distribution boxes
  • Electrically powered IP68 ball valves and butterfly valves
  • Pressure gauges
  • Water strainers

Sunrise Yachts launch first of 63m series, superyacht Irimari

Thursday, 7 May 2015 - By Gemma Fottles
Turkish shipyard Sunrise Yachts has launched the first of the Sunrise 63 series. After a total construction time of 30 months, Irimari was launched on the 30th April from the shipyard’s facilities in Antalya by two 700 cranes from the ship HHL Valparaiso.

Irimari was designed by the renowned Espen Oeino, with interior by Focus Yacht Design and naval architecture by Unique Yacht Design. She features a high tensile steel hull and aluminium superstructure, and boasts a transatlantic range of 5,000 miles. She has a top speed of 17 knots.

Although most of the dock and system trials have already been performed in its construction shed, the vessel will spend two months at the dock for final fit-out, commissioning and sea trials before being handed to her owners for the summer season. 

She will be presented at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
