Sunrise Yachts has confirmed to that it has received three letters of intent for new build projects following the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The letters for intent relate to the potential construction of a 45m sister ship to Atomic, a 50m A Vallicelli & Co design, and a 60m, also designed by Vallicelli. The yard says it has also entered preliminary discussions over a 50m Espen Øino designed project.

Sunrise has attributed this significant positivity, which if translated into firm orders would represent one of the strongest show returns of modern times, to the exhibition of Atomic, who made her debut at the show, and whose owner relayed his ‘contagious excitement about the yacht’ to visiting clients.

In a statement to the media, Guillaume Roché, Sunrise Yachts co-founder and CEO, stated: "We are very proud of the quality achieved with M/Y Atomic, which is bringing us one great step closer to our objectives, in terms of engineering and construction standards. We intend to continue improving with every project we are currently building and we look forward to exhibiting our new yachts at FLIBS in 2015 and beyond."

The yard says the exhibition of Atomic was instrumental in the process.
