Press Release, 24th March 2021 - Sanlorenzo confirms its participation at the Palm Beach International Boat Show 2021, one of the most important events in the nautical world.
A prestigious international stage where, from 25th to 28th March, the new SX112 yacht will make its official debut on the American market, together with a selection of the latest innovations, the SX76, SD96 and SL96Asymmetric.
These models, chosen to represent Sanlorenzo's range of yachts, perfectly illustrate the company's unique ability to challenge conventions, overturning perspectives and expanding the boundaries of nautical design to propose new solutions each time, built around the owner and his/her needs to ensure the highest quality of life on board.
The SX112 is an expression of the unique combination of creativity, research, industrial perfection and Made in Italy craftsmanship that has made Sanlorenzo a world leader in its field. The SX112 is the consolidation of a path that began with the SX88 and then the SX76, a challenge that continues and is enriched with new content, and which aims to propose a new way of experiencing the sea: on board the barriers fall away and the boat opens up to the outside world and connects with the marine environment.
The focal point of the project is the new stern area, which is undoubtedly the yacht's iconic space, a choice that gives the project new propositions and living perspectives, the brainchild of the architect Luca Santella, who also came up with the concept for the innovative SX crossover line.
A conceptual refinement of the SX88 project, this new model offers a spacious beach area of about 90 square metres, which can be extended thanks to the fold-down terraces, consisting of an indoor space, with a gym area directly connected to the outside, through large sliding glass windows that allow owners to enjoy these spaces in a new way, maximising the connection between indoor and outdoor.
A large platform where large toys can be hosted and which allows direct contact with the sea.
An absolute innovation on the SX112 is the position of the engine room, which for the first time has been located under the stern platform, making it possible to recover 40 square metres of space on board.
The design of the new crossover model was once again entrusted to the creativity of Bernardo Zuccon, of Studio Zuccon International Project, for the exterior lines and Piero Lissoni for the interiors of the first unit.
The design studio Zuccon International Project on the one hand has been busy consolidating an image, working strongly on the concept of family feeling of the range, on the other, it has had the opportunity to strengthen some linguistic choices thanks to the extension of the yacht's dimensions.
Piero Lissoni returns to design the interiors of the SX line, devoting particular attention to the subdivision of the interior in continuous dialogue with the exterior.
In line with the concept conceived for the other models, the main deck is designed as an open space that reinterprets the concept of areas inside the boat, developing into a single, continuous environment from stern to bow with a living area, adjacent to the bar area and followed by a dining area, seamless between inside and outside, thanks also to the large windows that overlook the sea. This innovative solution, which maximises the relationship with the open-air spaces, was introduced by Sanlorenzo for the first time on the SX88, thanks to the helm station located on the fly bridge, which keeps the area on deck free forward of the saloon, making it possible to create a single environment.
"The SX112 is another empirical model, like every new model we work on with Sanlorenzo. In this case we have brought an even more architectural attitude: it is a floating building.We have connected the spaces exactly as in a building through very technological openings that relate the inside to the outside and vice versa. In fact, we have built a villa that floats."
Also representing the crossover line is the entry level SX76. A synthesis of the classic motor yacht with flying bridge and the recent and growing explorer typology, the SX76 is a total family feeling of the SX line, maintaining all the stylistic characteristics of the SX88, such as the availability of large open spaces and glass surfaces, the wheelhouse located on the flying bridge, the forward area of the deck which is fully equipped to offer a living space, and the stern platform, lowered by four steps compared to the deck, which accommodates the four-metre tender and a jet ski.
The historic line of semi-displacement yachts is instead recounted at the boat show by the SD96 model. This project is the result of continuous research and attention to the needs of liveability on board. The thrust was the search for new scenarios through the introduction of the concept of transformability of spaces to enrich the experience of those who will live on the boat more. A model that knows how to meet the needs of clients by reinterpreting the typological balances in the name of a demand for volumes and functions that has changed over time.
Finally, chosen to narrate the asymmetrical line is the SL96Asymmetric, a model that consolidates the path started with SL102Asymmetric, the first asymmetrical yacht in the world, rewriting the conventional balances on board. The SL96Asymmetric rethinks the canonical layout of a yacht with the aim of making the interiors more usable and improving communication with the outside world, keeping only the starboard side corridor and eliminating the port side passageway, which is moved to the roof of the superstructure, thus making it possible to recover around 10 square metres of surface area in favour of the interiors. Compared to a traditional layout, this proposal offers more space, light, relaxation and greater flexibility of use.
In keeping with Sanlorenzo's sartorial approach, an essential value and an integral part of the company's design culture, the yachts on display are tailor-made to meet the needs of American clients.
Through Sanlorenzo Americas, the company's historic brand ambassador in the US, based in Fort Lauderdale, the company has made a name for itself over the years in the American market for its ability to tailor each project in line with American culture and lifestyle, while guaranteeing the highest quality and respect for values such as craftsmanship, tailoring and attention to detail typical of Italian know-how.
