18Isea& iIAUTUMN 2009 Platinum players Developed by former professional UK football player Andrew Taylor, Platinum Players is a web portal set up to facilitate the buying needs of professional footballers and associates. A couple of years ago Andrew recognised that young, wealthy and talented UK footballers lacked a dedicated service provider that could advise them wisely whatever their requirements - and understood what such needs could be. We are therefore very pleased to announce that Camper & Nicholsons International are the exclusive brokerage house selected to provide support to the portal for yacht charter and acquisition.

The second Sunrise 45, hull number 182, due for delivery in 2010, is now available. A full displacement, long- range motoryacht with a high- tensile steel hull and aluminum superstructure, her exterior has been designed by Paolo Scanu, while the interior design is by Frank Darnet. CNI's Mike Payne commented that, " The first Sunrise 45, Africa, is a superb superyacht that endorses Sunrise Yachts as a significant player in the superyacht market. I am sure that following Africa's showing at the forthcoming Monaco Yacht Show, hull number 182 will be met with similar interest by potential owners." Sunrise Yachts also announced its new signature series of 47m ( 154'), 52m ( 170'), 57m ( 187') and 65m ( 213') yachts with yacht designer Espen Ønio and interior designer Franck Darnet.

Available for sale through CNI's Mike Payne, the 47m is the first in the series that the yard plans to build for sale each summer.
