Sanlorenzo has developed three new models: in its Semi-displacement series there is the SD118, and in the Asymmetric series —SL90A, and the SL120A
Among other new features, the new SD118 boasts a vast stern area that, at anchor, transforms into a virtual island creating a beach of almost 215 sqft/ 20sqm walkable space when the side terraces are also opened up. The beach is equipped with a platform with a lift system that brings guests closer to the sea.
The new outdoor space of the SD is the large living area on the foredeck, spread over two interconnected decks, to which the owner has direct access from his large full-beam stateroom, through a sliding companionway, hidden under the staircase that connects the two decks, to ensure total privacy.
The asymmetry represents the core of the innovation of the new model of the semi-displacement line: extended on the upper deck, it allows a direct view of the sea from both sides, generating a perfect connection between the interior and the exterior. While the port side features a walkway that leads seamlessly from stern to bow, along which the bulwark at the salon opens to form a terrace, the starboard side, on the other hand, is like that of a wide body hull.
The SD has 290 GT— a lot of volume for a yacht of this size. Sanlorenzo collaborated with and Bernardo Zuccon, of Zuccon International Project studio, to achieve the new layout and the external lines that represent a contemporary interpretation of the classic lines of the shuttles.
"This project continues the path started with SD96 and confirms my deep interest in this range of products, composed of navettes, a term that recalls some of the most romantic aspects of sailing, linked to the desire to go to sea without haste, enjoying life on board for a long time. SD118 is therefore aimed at those shipowners who enjoy what in my opinion is the greatest luxury, namely time. If on the one hand I started from the desire to maintain some "fixed points" related to this fascinating typology of which the project is part, on the other hand I wanted to continue my research related to new concepts of living the sea. Hence my choice to apply the theme of asymmetry," says Bernardo Zuccon.
Thirteen units of the SD 118 have already been sold, carrying on board various names from the world of design, from the version with the interiors by Daniel and Michel Bismut, to the one designed by Patricia Urquiola, who continues her collaboration with the shipyard by furthering the path started with the interior design project of SD96, to the unit with interiors by Guillaume Rolland of the French studio Liaigre.
SD118 has been developed with a new performing hull that guarantees an excellent performance at sea.
Two new asymmetric models —SL90A and SL120A.
The concept of the asymmetrical line is the result of the successful encounter between creatives with very different experiences and perspectives: from an original idea of Chris Bangle, a car designer and Bernardo Zuccon, a yacht designer.
"SL120 and SL90A represent further confirmation of a path —which began with the introduction of the SL102 and now consolidated with the presentation of these new models —of exploration of the field and the concept of asymmetry, which has allowed us to redefine the way of inhabiting the vessel. The spaces and fluxes of life on board have in fact been redesigned in a different key, offering the opportunity to perceive the sea from new and dynamic perspectives, which are constantly changing as you move around on board. This extension of the asymmetric range is today also a further affirmation of credibility not only from a design point of view, but also from a commercial point of view, demonstrating how research into lifestyle concepts is as topical as ever and able to positively influence the rationale of the market,” says Bernardo Zuccon
In 2018, Sanlorenzo launched its first asymmetrical model, the SL102A, providing additional interior space and a direct contact with the sea. It is an approach that is interpreted differently in each of the three models, together with new innovations and design details that make every one of the new proposals unique.
Thanks to its innovative layout, the SL90A retains only the starboard side of the bridge and eliminates the port side, which is moved to the roof of the structure, enlarging the salon on the main deck and allowing for more space and light with full-height lateral windows, which on the port side directly face the sea.
The asymmetrical configuration allows for a layout with the owner's cabin and main deck salon on the same level, a solution normally found on larger yachts. The owner’s cabin has dedicated access to the bow area, while the fly bridge and the bow area are connected to each other and there is a sundeck integrated into the full-beam superstructure.
SL90A incorporates "One Way" glazing which, externally is chromatically similar to the hull and dematerializes the perception of empty spaces, giving a clean sense of aesthetic continuity.
SL120A—the new flagship of the asymmetrical Sanlorenzo line.
SL120A, the new flagship of the asymmetrical Sanlorenzo line, is a 121ft/ 37m planing model that brings the concept of asymmetry to its maximum expression: space, comfort, functionality, great flexibility of use and a strong connection between internal and external volumes.
On this model Sanlorenzo applies the asymmetrical configuration only in the living area of the main deck that extends from the cockpit to the middle to the vessel. The foredeck is kept only on the right-hand side of the main deck where it flanks the living area up to the center of the yacht, then it is brought to the fly bridge and finally descends to the external living area in the bow via a staircase.
The starboard side of the saloon almost disappears through a system of sliding doors, creating a total fusion with the external environment, while the port side offers a wide body solution which, thanks to a part of the bulwark that is lowered, gives a perception of maximum transparency.
The asymmetry melds the internal space of the adjoining bow area, where the owner’s cabin is located, and extends across the entire width of the hull.
Fundamental to the design of SL120 Asymmetric's design is the attention dedicated to outdoor spaces. An example of this is the outdoor living area forward, spread over two decks linked by a staircase, to which the owner has direct and private access from their cabin. This space occupies 258sqft/24sqm.
The full connection with the sea and the liveability of the outdoor spaces can be experienced on the aft area of the Lower Deck. The garage can be transformed into a 484sqft/45sqm beach club thanks to the fold -down terraces.
The interior design by Martina Zuccon, characterised by neutral tones, is elegant and light with accents of Thai walnut wood, chosen for both the wall panelling and the floor. The overhead stands out for its metallic-effect lacquer finish.
