The aim of the SP110 project for Sanlorenzo is to write a new success story in yachting and enter the world of sports yachts with a yacht that breaks the mould. SP110 represents an advanced technological patform that combines innovation and sustainability with a design that favours maximum comfort. A project made possible by the collaboration of a team of professionals at the highest levels in individual skills: Bernardo Zuccon for the exteriors, Tilli Antonelli at Sanlorenzo product development, Marco Arnaboldi for the hull design, Piero Lissoni for the interiors.
The first yacht in the SP – “Smart Performance” range, it is the result of an ambitious design goal: to guarantee high performance with the maximum energy efficiency thanks to a fractional propulsion system consisting of three significantly smaller, with the best weight/power ratio. Depending on the conditions and the owner’s needs, the boat is able to move around using just one engine, a pair or all three, thus allowing great flexibility, low consumption and a different autonomy depending on the desired speed.
Fundamental to the realisation of SP110 is the hull, designed by Marco Arnaboldi, optimised for use with hydrojet propulsion. This type of propulsion is an advantage over propeller propulsion because it is less sensitive to variations in the boat’s weight and therefore more versatile. The study of water lines has resulted in a surprisingly efficient hull with a maximum beam of over 8 metres for a total length of 33 metres. The double-edged flank guarantees on the one hand a width for buoyancy that maintains the highest performance and comfort even in rough seas, and on the other hand offers a considerable surface area that can be exploited both outdoors and indoors.
To further optimise consumption and performance, various solutions have been used to ensure significant weight savings. Lightened materials like the laminated glass used for the large surfaces of the windows, which cover almost 80% of the boat. The latter on the outside pick up the colour of the hull making the surface homogeneous while maintaining an excellent luminosity inside.
The exterior design, by the Zuccon International Project studio, is the result of complex research work to create new stylistic features strongly identifying the new range, thus maintaining continuity with Sanlorenzo’s tradition. The unprecedented forms, the proportions, the aerodynamic lines, as well as the livery, which departs from the shipyard’s more traditional colours to come closer to the more typical colours of sports yachts, refer to the strongly emotional character of this boat.
