The superyacht is the first in the 63-metre series for Sunrise Yachts.

Irimari, the first in the 63-metre series for Sunrise Yachts, hit the water in a world first on the 30th April. Pictures show the superyacht being lifted from her cradle by two cranes, themselves on the heavy-lifter ship HHL Valparaiso, before being lowered into the water.

The manoeuvre left many at the yard holding their breath, but according to Sunrise Yachts, “to everyone’s delight and Sunrise Yachts’ pride, the vessel weighed-in bang on target and settled into her lines perfectly with no need for ballasting.”

Exterior lines are by Espen Øino and the interior by Focus Yacht Design of Bremen. She is a full-displacement yacht, with a steel hull and aluminium superstructure, and naval architecture by Unique Yacht Design of Antalya. She will have a top speed of 17 knots and a 5,000+ mile range.

Irimari will spend the next couple of months in the dock for her final fit-out and sea trials, before being handed over to her owners for the summer months, after which she will appear in the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
