In 2005, a yachtsman and a builder sat down in Istanbul to discuss a project. It was during and after this meeting that Herbert P. Baum and Guillaume Roché built the foundation of what would become Sunrise Yachts.
Their first build launched in 2009, the stylish Africa, and the yard has been steadily producing high-quality, high-tensile steel and aluminum or composite yachts ever since. A team of international designers, naval architects, engineers and craftsmen work to ensure each yacht meet the highest of standards. It is these standards which, in only a few short years, have allowed the builder to expand their production to two spacious yards in Turkey that can accommodate refit and new construction work up to 246 feet (75 meters).
