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. Using decades of experience in the industry, the two German and British/French company founders created a shipyard famed for its high quality builds.
Their first build launched in 2009, the stylish motor yacht 147’2’’ (44.85m) M/Y Africa, with the yard continuing to producing high-quality, high-tensile steel and aluminium or composite yachts thereafter, with notable launches including the epic 208’8’’ (63.1m) M/Y Irimari and the stylish 147’ (44.81m) Atom. The construction of each yacht involved a skilled team of international designers, naval architects, engineers and craftsmen work, to ensure the highest of standards were met.
As a Turkish company, the Sunrise fleet were constructed between two large yards located in the Free Zone of Anatalya. The high volume sites allowed Sunrise to produce large vessels between 147’ (45m) and 223’ (68m) in length, as well as offering refit facilities.
