Of particular importance are the volumes recorded in recent years by the Sanlorenzo Superyacht division, specializing in the construction of metal superyachts from 40 to 80 meters: in fact 21 superyachts have been built to date, 15 of which are currently under construction.A positive trend that has prompted the company in its decision to invest 60 million euros in the next two years, of which:
- 24 million euros destined for the production site of La Spezia and its renovation
- 20 million euros for the Ameglia site, where the spaces dedicated to the production of fiberglass craft have doubled
- 16 million euros for the acquisition of the "Fipa" shipyards in Massa (about 20,000 square meters) and in Viareggio (7,000 square meters), and for the renovation of the existing shipyard
- Furthermore, over 30 million euros will be allocated to the creation of new products and to research and development.
THE SANLORENZO ASYMMETRIC SL102THE SANLORENZO ASYMMETRIC SL102
Among the main shipyards in the world specializing in the production of yachts and superyachts, Sanlorenzo returns to the international scene with a bold and innovative project.The idea of creating an asymmetrical yacht stems from a well-defined design idea that is rooted in the company's DNA and in its intrinsic capacity to redesign the interior of a boat, pushing its horizons further and further, while expanding the boundaries of nautical design each time.With the aim of obtaining greater usability of the interior spaces and better communication with the exterior, the SL102 rethinks the well-established layout of a yacht, only keeping the deck on the starboard side and eliminating the port side one, which is carried on the roof of the structure, allowing through this asymmetrical configuration, never tried before, to recover about 10 square meters of area to benefit the interior.Thanks to the desire to think differently, to dare to step outside of traditional customs, the company thus again has proven its aptitude for working on the concept of space, molding it at will every time, to give life to ideas pieced together by customers' wishes.
SX72: Sanlorenzo presents the second model of the “SX” line
After the extraordinary success gained from the SX88 at the 2017 edition of the Cannes, Genoa, Düsseldorf and Miami Boats Shows, as evidenced by the sale of 13 units to date, of which three have already been launched, Sanlorenzo, on the occasion of its 60th anniversary, has unveiled a preview of the new born of its product range: the new SX72 crossover yacht.
The concept behind the project starts once again from the company's desire to propose a completely innovative approach to on-board space, an approach by which the Zuccon studio, for the exterior lines, and Piero Lissoni, as pertains to the interior design but also as the Art Director of the company, have interpreted the first version of the SX72, which will be officially presented at Cannes Yachting Festival 2018.
