Philosophy, History

The passion for adventure and the thrill of discovery explain the special commitment of our family to shipbuilding for three generations. The enthusiasm for sailing underlines our philosophy of a constant pursuit of the "ideal product". A yacht that combines functionality, aesthetics and sportiveness in an optimal way.

True to this philosophy, we set high quality standards for our SUNBEAM YACHTS. We pay the greatest attention to the workmanship even in inaccessible places, as this indicates the quality concept of a shipyard better than anything else.
As a result, you will have more pleasure sailing.

Advantage based on tradition
The Schöchl family founded their carpentry business in Mattsee/Salzburg/Austria as early as 1838. Since that time, we have been striving for the highest level of quality. More than 180 years of experience in wood processing and more than 65 years in the development, planning and design of yachts has made us one of the leading shipyards in Europe.
