Sunrise Yachts presented a new line of yachts ranging from 43 to 100 metres in length. One of these models is the 170 Merideon, developed by Focus Yacht Design from Germany. Merideon is a 51 metre concept yacht with a gross tonnage of 499 GT.
Focus Yacht Design created a sleek and slender aluminium hull shape with a dynamic sloping superstructure, perfectly blending usable exterior deck spaces with her high volume interior. The aim for style was also very important, and Merideon’s continues profile lines and soft curves create sense of elegance timelessness.
Functionality in the design was key, and inside, all staircases have been centrally located to promote ease of movement throughout the yacht for guests and crew. The most have been made of the available space, and along with clever layout, guests are treated to relaxation spaces much larger than commonly found on a yacht of this size. Guest cabins are located aft of the engine room, guests can also access the beach club directly through a private passage.
A straight bow has been applied to the design which will increase the yacht’s sea keeping abilities as well as speed. A cruising speed of 18 knots has been calculated.
