Sunrise Yachts and Worth Avenue Yachts Announce 223-Foot Skyfall
Antalya, Turkey-based Sunrise Yachts will deliver John and Jeanette Staluppi’s nineteenth and largest yacht to date in 2017. Skyfall, designed by Vallicelli &
Co. with interior design by Focus Yacht Design and naval architecture by Mulder Design and OYD, is a semi-displacement motoryacht with a steel hull
and aluminum superstructure. She’ll utilize a Voith Linear Jet propulsion system with ultra-low-emissions MME microturbines—a relatively new concept
in marine power generation—that drastically reduce vibration, exhaust noise and smell. A low-angle transom slope reminiscent of a racing sailing yacht,
plus a long forward overhang, give Skyfall a slender appearance despite her five decks.

International SeaKeepers Society Hosts ‘Moon Over Miami’
More than 200 guests including prominent yachtsmen, business leaders, philanthropists and celebrities
attended the International SeaKeepers Society “Moon Over Miami” event during the Yacht & Brokerage
Show in Miami Beach. The party, which featured music, cocktails, a silent auction and a display of the group’s
SeaKeeper Drifter ocean monitoring device, was held at Villa Vecchia, home of yachtsman Michael Saylor.
The International SeaKeepers Society is dedicated
to raising awareness about critical ocean issues
though scientific discovery, educational opportunity,
artistic inspiration and instrumentation. The
SeaKeeper Drifter is a monitoring device that floats
on the ocean’s surface and extends 49 feet (15
meters) into the water column to provide insight
into marine debris and ocean currents, and to assist
in hurricane prediction models, providing uniform
quality for aging satellites. Yachts International was a
media sponsor for the event.
