Drettmann Sunrise unveils superyacht lines
by Tim Thomas
Drettmann Sunrise Group, formed last year by the merger of German company Drettmann Group and Turkish builder Sunrise Yachts, has unveiled designs for its first ranges, including two completely new lines – the Drettmann Motor Yacht (DMY) and the Drettmann Explorer Yacht (DEY).
‘For most of our customers, owning a yacht is a dream,’ says Claudia Drettmann, senior executive and interior designer of the group. ‘We are now in a position to create an exclusive and unique product to match highly diverse customer requests.’
Diversity is certainly apparent among the new designs. The sports boat-like lines of the DMY series contrast sharply with the purposeful and angular DEY series. But both lines offer models from 27m to 37m and focus on sports activities, each containing a full beach club in the stern.
The styling of the DEY series implies proficient explorer capabilities, as well as prodigious interior volumes for the length available. The provisional GA for the 32m version shows a full-width master cabin forward on the main deck, a VIP cabin behind the bridge and four double en suite cabins midships on the lower deck. There is particular emphasis on outdoor spaces.
For the DMY range, the equivalent 32m GA shows a master on the main deck, which also offers a saloon with bar and forward dining area, while a raised pilothouse leads to a large sundeck. Claudia Drettmann has told BI that Tony Castro will design the naval architecture for this line.
