The Next Bond Project "Skyfall"

Sunrise Yachts in Antalya, Turkey will deliver John and Jeanette Staluppi's nineteenth and largest project to date in 2017. Project "Skyfall" will measure 68m (223ft) in length, is designed by Vallicelli & Co., an interior design by Focus Yacht Design and naval architecture by Mulder Design and OYD. From looking at the Staluppi's previous megayachts, we can only expect a stylish exterior design and a glamorous and luxurious interior.

The confirmation of project "Skyfall", was the outcome of months of development between the clients, the designers, the brokers and the builder's teams. This confirmation represents a considerable achievement and milestone for Sunrise Yachts.

Guillaume Roche, Sunrise Yachts CEO, states: "It means a lot to us to be chosen to build such an ambitious project, especially for one of the world’s most experienced yacht owners. It is both an acknowledgement of our achievements in the six short years of our shipyard's 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 project's 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.

She is a fast displacement megayacht with a steel hull and aluminum superstructure. She has been designed to meet the owner's particular requirements in terms of exterior design, comfort and in true Staluppi style the all important "speed" element. The Staluppi's spirit of innovation has produced many groundbreaking megayachts over the years and Skyfall will be no exeption featuring a host of technologies never combined in a megayacht project before. One is the Voith Linear Jet propulsion system that offers performance, reliability, silence and the MME micro turbines which could be the power generating solution of the future.
Andrea Vallicelli of Vallicelli & Co. 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."

A press conference with the owners and the full project team in attendance will be held during the Palm Beach International Boat Show, March 20-23, 2014.
