Owner of Atomic builds yacht in secret as present for his wife

Owner of Atomic builds yacht in secret as present for his wife

Building a boat in secrecy from your wife can be a risky prospect, but it’s one that paid off for the owner of the Sunrise Yachts 45 metre Atomic. The yacht was delivered in October 2014 by the Turkish builder, and it was on what seemed like a simple family holiday in Turkey that her owner disclosed his trickery.

For the big reveal, he orchestrated to have the yacht pull up while the family dined at a beachfront restaurant, and he innocently asked his wife if she liked the yacht – another risky move, what if she said no? But luckily his 12 months of furtiveness paid off, and the family now enjoys a beautiful new yacht.

The full-displacement, steel-and-aluminium Atomic stands out with a bold red racing stripe and detailing against her white paint job. Her interiors are by Franck Darnet, who also did the interiors for hull No 1 in the Sunrise Yachts’ 45 metre series, but gave Atomic’s a completely different look, featuring contemporary styling, light woods and bold colours.
