Turkish yacht builder Sunrise Yachts and German yacht brand Drettmann have joined forces to create the Drettmann-Sunrise Group, which will have as its focus the re-birth of the Drettmann brand.

Sunrise and Drettmann will combine their facilities and resources in Germany and Turkey in order to re-launch the Drettmann brand as ‘a highly competitive alternative to North European yacht-building in the superyacht market’.

In addition to Sunrise Yachts’ superyacht designs, the company will introduce new product lines focusing on Drettmann’s already established client base.

The activities of the company will now include composite, steel and aluminium yachts in motoryacht, explorer, superyacht and classic style from 12m-65m (39ft-213ft)
