Sanlorenzo announces turnover, investment, and new models.
To celebrate six decades of yachting expertise, the company announced its future €60 million-investment and new projects at a press conference held in La Spezia, including the new SL102 and SX72 yachts, which will be launched at the upcoming 41st edition of Cannes Yachting Festival on 11 September 2018.
What’s interesting to note is that in 60 years, Sanlorenzo has built over 750 yachts with a focus on developing superyachts. To date, 21 metal superyachts from 40m to 80m have been built and 15 of which are currently under production.
In tandem with its phenomenal breadth of work, the company also announced a turnover from €40 million in 2005 to €300 million in 2017, thanks to the management of Massimo Perotti, Chairman and CEO. Further investment and planning is indubitably on the cards – the company announced €60 million in the next two years, of which €24 million is catered for the renovation of La Spezia production site; €20 million for the Ameglia site; €16 million for the acquisition of the “Fipa” shipyards in Massa and Viareggio and existing shipyard-renovation; and over €30 million on new products and research and development.
Not forgetting, the company recently trumpeted the successful 13 unit-sale of the SX88 launched in 2017; in addition, Sanlorenzo also unveiled a preview of the newborn of its product range – the new SX72 crossover yacht, and an asymmetrical SL102.
For the SX72’s exterior, it was designed by the Zuccon studio while the interior design was left under the capable hands of preeminent designer Piero Lissoni who is recognised in the furniture industry for his finesse in the creative direction of Porro, Living Divani and Boffi, to name a few. The yacht keeps all the style features of SX88, including large open spaces and large windows and an over 194-sq-ft beach club at the stern.
The SL102 is also another remarkable craft, boasting a greater usability of the interior spaces and better communication with the exterior, by only keeping the deck on starboard and eliminating the port side, allowing the configuration to recover about 107-sq-ft of the area to benefit the interior.
