Sanlorenzo Asia, a division of Simpson Marine, is pleased to announce a double sale of two 2021 premiere models from Sanlorenzo into Asia. These brand-new units of the SL90A, the latest addition to Sanlorenzo’s Asymmetrical range, and the SD118 are set to be delivered into the region in 2022.
“I’m delighted to witness the strong brand trust and growing interest in Sanlorenzo in Asia,” says Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo Asia Sales Manager. “It has been an incredible year for the brand in the region with many new yachts being delivered and enjoyed by their owners. These two new sales are just the start of an exciting adventure ahead for their owners – one that we will follow all the way. In testament to the brand’s popularity in Asia, we are very proud that the Sanlorenzo Asia division recently received an award from Sanlorenzo for the Best Sales and Service Performance Worldwide in both the Yacht and Superyacht divisions.”
The 35.7 metre long and 8 metre beam semi-displacement SD118 is a 2021 premiere model introduced by the shipyard in summer 2021. It is the first SD model to have the innovative Sanlorenzo-patented Asymmetrical design, which was successfully introduced on to SL-line planing yacht models (SL90A–SL120A).
Sanlorenzo SD118 – External Views
The SD118 has space for up to 10 guests (and six crew members) accommodated in five cabins. Its sleek and balanced exterior was designed by the shipyard’s long-term reputed Italian design partners, Zuccon International Project. Her design balances classic and traditional lines into a contemporary interpretation, with an aesthetic centred around her wide-body hull. A spectacular restyled stern with a 19 sqm beach terrace with foldable side terraces is a stand out feature that allows for an expansive outdoor living space while providing storage for a 5.2m tender.
The 31 sqm forward outdoor living area of the SD118 is organised on two connected levels, the upper deck and the forward deck. These provide an area for open air relaxation, which the owner has direct access to from their spectacular full beam 45 sqm forward cabin by means of a sliding hatch. This hatch is concealed below the staircase connecting the two decks in order to ensure privacy. Adding to these exterior areas, the 57sqm flybridge is fitted with movable branded furniture, and a wet bar provides an inviting area to enjoy uninterrupted vistas across beautiful surroundings.
SD118 – Interiors
The peak of the design innovation on the SD118 is the layout arrangement that has an asymmetrical configuration providing increased space, comfort, flexibility of use, and an interrupted view of the sea from both sides.
The 290 GT yacht is powered by two Caterpillar C32 Acert diesel engines, which will allow her to cruise comfortably at 10 knots, with 2500 nautical miles of extensive autonomy, and reach a top speed of 19 knots. This package makes her ideal for exploring Asia’s diverse waters.
The SD118 is the latest addition to Sanlorenzo’s restyled SD range and has enjoyed an extremely successful pre-launch with an incredible 13 units sold before her official showcase. She features distinctive interior designs including collaborations with Bismut & Bismut Architects, Studio Liaigre, Patricia Urquiola, and Zuccon International Project, showcasing Sanlorenzo’s ability and flexibility to work with prestigious and remarkably diverse interior designers.
Designed by Zuccon International Project, the 27.6m SL90 Asymmetric was a real surprise of this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival as Sanlorenzo added it to its exciting line up without prior announcement. The SL90A is another successful addition to the yard’s innovative Asymmetric range. Her asymmetrical configuration allows for a layout with the owner’s cabin and main deck saloon on the same level, a design solution normally found on larger yachts. The owner’s cabin benefits from dedicated access to the bow area, while the flybridge and the bow area are connected to each other and feature a sundeck integrated into the full-beam superstructure.
With its sinuous and elegant lines, the SL90A features “One Way” glazing which, externally is chromatically similar to the hull and dematerialises the perception of empty spaces, giving a sense of cleanliness and aesthetic continuity. Another new design feature is a raised pilothouse on the main deck, which increases the feeling of internal space. This allows for plenty of light throughout the main deck saloon, which spreads across 31.5 sqm and connects to a 19.5 sqm cockpit, making it an incredible 50 sqm of a common living area. A magnificent 20 sqm master suite on the main deck forward is spread across three distinctive levels including the master bedroom, bathroom and dressing room. Powered by two MAN 2000 HP engines the SL90A will cruise fast and comfortably at 25 knots with a maximum speed of 29 knots.
These new sales of the SL90A and SD118 add to an increasingly successful sales track record for Sanlorenzo in Asia. Notable new models sold into the region include metal superyachts such as the 52Steel, 500EXP and The Alloy, and composite yachts from the SX, SL and SD ranges including the SX112, SL102A, SL96A, SD96 among others.
