The confirmation of luxury yacht Project Skyfall, the outcome of months of development between the clients, the designers, the brokers and the builders teams, represents a considerable achievement for Sunrise Yachts.

Guillaume Roché, Sunrise Yachts CEO, states: “It means a lot to us to be chosen to build such an ambitious project, especially for one of the worlds most experienced yacht owners. It is both an acknowledgement of our achievements in the six short years of our shipyards operation, and a motivation to further pursue excellence in our standards. We are looking forward with great anticipation to this unique opportunity that is creating a floating work of art with creative and competent people”.

Worth Avenue Yachts, who have been advising the clients, will be following up on the projects construction until delivery in 2017. “There are some yachts that become game changers, that alter the desires and aspirations of future designs simply becoming the way of the future: this is one of those yachts,” stated Peter Thompson.

Superyacht Project Skyfall is a fast displacement, steel hull and aluminium superstructure, transtlantic luxury motor yacht designed to meet the owners particular requirements in terms of esthetics, speed and comfort. In line with the owners spirit of innovation that has produced many groundbreaking yachts, Project Skyfall will feature a host of technologies never combined in a yacht project before. To name but a few: the Voith Linear Jet propulsion system offering performance, reliability and silence and the MME microturbines, the power generating solution of the future.

Vallicelli & Co, one of Italy’s most prominent naval architects and yacht designers, who combine extensive experience in both sailing and motor yachts, have created a design of remarkable proportions. Andrea Vallicelli explains: “The originality of the style, playing with harmonious contrasts between soft and rigid formal elements, is clearly noticeable in the sheer-­‐line. Moreover, the low angle of the transom slope, reminiscent of a racing sailing yacht, and the long forward overhang help Project Skyfall to be a very slender yacht, although she has no less than five decks”.

The interior design is entrusted to the talent of Bremen‐based Focus Yacht Design, who are currently working with the shipyard on a 63m project to be delivered next winter. Project Skyfall yacht will feature a sumptuous contemporary interior, balancing a richness of decor and a contemporary elegance complementing the yachts sleek exterior styling. Surprise features will add glamour and fun to the owners and charter guests onboard experience.

Frank and Bas Mulder of Mulder Design, who have developed many record-breaking yachts with the owners, will be bringing their engineering expertise to the Project Skyfall superyacht and will help achieve the project’s performance targets.
