Oct 6, 2014 by Guest Writer

Turkish builder Sunrise Yachts has launched the second yacht in its 45m series. The 148-foot Project Sunset (Hull 182) was scheduled to debut at the Monaco Yacht Show and show in the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. The yacht is a three-deck, full displacement motoryacht with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure.

Like its sister ship, M/Y Africa, it has a full-length technical tunnel running from the engine room to the bow-thruster compartment for access to tanks and systems at bilge deck level. The interior was designed by Franck Darnet Design.
