Turkish superyacht builder Sunrise Yachts has announced the launch of Irimari, the first motoryacht of the Sunrise 63 series. The yacht touched water on 30th April after 30 months of construction.

The method of launch was a world-premier, the yard claims. Irimari was lifted from her cradle on the dock by two 700 cranes from the heavy-lifter ship HHL Valparaiso and lowered to the sea.

Irimari, a vessel of nearly 1,500gt, is a 63-metre full displacement motoryacht with a hi-tensile steel hull and alyminium superstructure. The yacht is capable of cruising beyond 5,000 miles and reaching a top speed of 17 knots.

Her lines are designed by Espen Oeino. Her interior design is work of Focus Yacht Design of Bremen, and naval architecture by Antalya-based firm Unique Yacht Design.

Following her launch, Irimari will spend two months at the dock for final fit-out, commissioning and sea trials before delivery to her owners in the summer.

The yacht will be presented at the Monaco Yacht show in September.
