Extensive package of valves for Turkish mega yachtsCurrently, two dazzling mega yachts will be launched from the shipyard of Sunrise Yachts in Antalya, Turkey. Following fruitful cooperation between ERIKS and its Turkish agent Nemomarin - which represents various top brand suppliers in the maritime sector - ERIKS was awarded an extensive order for the delivery of a total package of accessories for both mega yachts, which will be delivered early next year and early 2016.
Largest yachts in the history of the shipyardSunrise Yachts - founded in 2006 and based in Antalya, Turkey - is one of the largest and most modern shipyards for mega yachts in the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea. The yacht builder has two assembly halls of 11,000 m2 and 9,000 m2 respectively and it can build three yachts of up to 70 metres simultaneously. Build numbers 601 and 632 that are currently under construction are two wonderfully sleek mega yachts, each with a length of more than 63 metres, making them among the largest ever built in Turkey. The design of both of the yachts is based on the same hull and the same technical platform, but the finish for each yacht is unique. The most remarkable aspect about the design is the volume, which makes these yachts among the largest in the world in their length class.
High quality requirements
“These mega yachts obviously come with a hefty price tag. In order to guarantee its market value for the future Sunrise Yachts only uses top brand components and systems,” explains Hilco Oortwijn, International Sales Manager at ERIKS' Maritime Business Unit. “
“ERIKS has an excellent reputation when it comes to accessories and marine systems - especially with the luxury yachting industry. That is not only because of our wide product range, but also because of the good value for money we provide and our years of expertise that enables us to deliver the necessary technical support. That has certainly bolstered our position in the negotiation process.”
Appreciation for collaboration
Oortwijn also underlines the value of ERIKS' agent Nemomarin from Istanbul: “During the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) in Amsterdam last year Nemomarin and we received representatives from Sunrise Yachts and we managed to strengthen our ties during that occasion. We certainly also have our agent to thank for acquiring this order.”
