Sanlorenzo launches X, 2nd 460Exp on 5 explorer vessels sold


A few months after the debut of the first 460Exp unit at the past Monaco Yacht Show, Sanlorenzo has launched “X”, the second hull of the new Explorer line.Since her world premiere in Montecarlo (September 2015), Sanlorenzo has sold 5 more 460Exp units, which are currently under production to be delivered in 2017 and 2018.

The Explorer line’s great success is further cemented by the international reception it has enjoyed, with the 5 units sold until today going to owners from all corners of the globe: USA, Mexico, EU, Russia and China.

460EXP “X” is a 460-GT (gross-tons) superyacht of 42,2 meters in length, with a displacement hull in steel and an aluminum superstructure.

The Explorer is a new kind of superyacht, characterized by high technology and comfort on board, and, most of all, significant cruising self-sufficiency and endurance. It is perfect for owners who are fascinated by exploration, adventures and, at the same time, care for design, refinement and details.


For his family and friends, the Mexican owner of “X” chose a layout with 6 cabins as well as an additional family room. The sun deck is fully equipped as an outdoor gym, and on the main deck guests can swim against an artificial current in a large and heated “endless swimming pool”. Both the main and upper deck salons host a large 14-seat table, and they are furnished with Minotti design pieces only. The décor of the entire superyacht reveals the taste and the style of her adventurous and refined owner.

“X” is a five-deck superyacht and, like each Sanlorenzo for more than 50 years, she has been built according to the requests of her owner. Unlike the olive green of the first yacht “Moka”, the owner of “X” chose a pearl grey hull.


The 460EXP external lines are strong and imposing and they evoke the big exploration ships that cruise in remote and unknown areas. The superstructure is shifted forward, leaving vast space on the main deck astern for many toys to be housed: a submarine, a seaplane, sailing or fishing boats, large tender (up to 10 m), etc. When at anchor and free of equipment, the main deck of the 460EXP becomes a wide solarium.
