New build Sunrise 170 Merideon for sale
by Philip Reynolds
The semi-displacement yacht is planned to be built in aluminium and has a predicted build time of 30-32 months.
The elegant and slender hull lines, designed by Focus Yacht Design, evoke a timeless style that will be complemented by a 21st century performance and interior. The leaner and longer arrangement of 499 gross tons will provide for more efficient hull for higher speed as well as better fuel economy. There will be increased interior length within the hull, which will increase performance and stability, making for exceptional seakeeping.
Focus has been put on the use of extra space, generating a feel of a larger boat. There is also a concentration on functionality to allow the crew to easily work with the yacht, maximising the high level of service needed on a such a boat.
Features include interior and exterior stairways concentrated in a central core enable the exterior decks free of stairs. The quality of the interior, also by Focus Yacht Design, was seen recently at the Monaco Boat Show on the 63 metre Irimari.
Aft large exterior decks on all levels offer great spaces for specific, dedicated functions such as sun bathing, exterior lounging and al-fresco dining, each with their own designated areas.
The main deck aft features a generous seating area with great views and an integrated layout together with the beach club. The circular seating arrangement is comprised of elements of two different sizes that slide around on a circular track.
There is designated dining area on the aft bridge deck. The service can either be arranged directly from the pantry or through a specific bar area which is arranged forward of the sky lounge. The sun protection is provided by means of an automated rigid awning system that is easy to use and highly versatile. The discreet use of glass wind breaks has been incorporated on the bridge deck aft, which will add comfort to any dining experience underway or at anchor.
The tender boats have been relocated, allowing for an arrangement of a stern beach club, a feature known previously from yachts of 60 metres and above. The guest cabin area is arranged aft of the engine room, allowing guests to directly access the beach club and the swim platform from their cabins.
The Sunrise 170 Merideon, which will carry up to 12 passengers and nine crew and has a cruising speed of 16 knots and top speed of 23, is on the market for $32,700,000.
