The newest and biggest addition to Sanlorenzo’s luxury explorer yacht range, the 47m 500EXP model is an evolution of the yard’s slightly smaller 460EXP design that has taken everything good about the 460EXP and added even more desirable features to it. One of the biggest differences between the two models is the extension of stern to create an even bigger space for storing toys and tenders and doubling as a helipad – perfect for guest access in remote anchorages.
Designed to travel the world, the 500EXP is a hardy design with expedition qualities, all in one stylish package with the signature Sanlorenzo look. Ideally suited to extended inventories and remote cruising grounds, she has a displacement hull with steel hull and aluminium superstructure, extensive on-board storage, and a range of more than 4500nm cruising at 11 knots. Powered by twin CAT C32 ACERT engines she can reach maximum speeds of 15.5 knots.
Boasting generous volumes across all decks, the 500EXP is spacious and welcoming with a contemporary and stylish interior and large windows that let in natural light and showcase spectacular scenery and oceanscapes. The main deck is the heart of the yacht and features a guest lobby, with a striking stylised staircase that connects the main decks, and a large main saloon with a large formal dining table and lounge seating. The main saloon leads seamlessly out to the aft cockpit which connects with the extensive quarter deck.
On board accommodation is for 12, with all cabins generously appointed with en suite. Forward of the main deck is the impressive owner’s suite which includes lounge seating, his and hers bathrooms and a separate private office. Two VIP cabins and two twins are located on the lower deck together with the galley and crew quarters.
The upper deck features the captain’s cabin, wheelhouse, day head and a second guest saloon, leading out to the upper aft deck with seating and sun loungers. Moving up a level the sundeck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying stunning surroundings, with a large al fresco dining set up, sun loungers, seating and coffee table and a beautiful Jacuzzi. The lower deck provides yet more exterior space with the lazarette, swim platform and connecting tender garage that has the capacity to store a tender up to 7 metres long. The impressive beach club area has been further developed with additional openings that provide even more of a connection with the sea.
Perfect for the adventurous of spirit, and ideally suited to cruising the waters of the Asia Pacific and anywhere in the world, the 500EXP is an impressive yacht that will let you travel extensively in comfort and style.
