Superyacht of the Week: The Sanlorenzo SL104
Sanlorenzo has a reputation of offering an unrivalled level of customization, which results in the fact that there are never two Sanlorenzo Yachts that are the same. This has been clearly demonstrated by the unique five-stateroom SL104 planing yacht, that will be on display at the Miami International Boat Show (MIBS) this week.
Both interior and exterior areas of the SL104 have an array of design options: from the complete design layout, to joinery style, to any wood species of choice. All reinforce how every Sanlorenzo is an expression of her owner’s unique tastes.
In the case of this particular SL104 at the MIBS, images of black sandy beaches, rocky coastlines and the iridescent hues of sea shells were the inspiration for the décor by the Sanlorenzo Americas’ interior designer, Marty Lowe. Envisioned in a graphic palette of black and creamy white, this tranquil collection embraces the streamlined modernism of the Sanlorenzo yacht. The contemporary lines of the yacht have been lightened with textural, natural materials using a unique choice of resources throughout the yacht.
Special attention has been given to the relationship of the spaces and the interplay of illusions, creating an interesting drama as one moves through the yacht. Exotic, tactile materials such as hand carved wenge and bleached anigre woods, are contrasted with the sleekness and reflective properties of bronzed glass, stainless steel and bronzed mirror. Fossilized marbles have been carved to complement the rustic beauty of natural, time-worn stones and supple leathers are used as a design element creating yet another layer of tactile interest found in certain locations as you wander through the yacht.
The dual use lounge/dining area in the salon has been designed to address the trend of informal dining in the Americas, while careful consideration has been given to make the flybridge dining area comfortable in every way, enabling an experience to treasure while looking out to sea.
The removable slipcovers for the salon lounges are made from a pure Belgian linen that has been washed to enhance its natural softness and suppleness which respects the overall casualness and propensity to wrinkle. The comfort of goose down cushions offers a casual, yet luxurious environment on the water.
Dressing each berth within the staterooms in layers of luxury is evident in the bedding and linens, to facilitate a restful night’s sleep. The Master suite on the main deck is very light and airy, thanks to the large amount of windows. The ensuite Rain Shower has been designed with privacy glass, to turn opaque at the touch of a button.
The main deck Galley has been designed by a professional chef in order to ensure the highest level of functionality and state of the art amenities. The fossilized marble countertop is the continuation of one of the materials that subtly link areas of the interior.
Exterior spaces have been defined by separate zones envisioned as unique entertaining opportunities. Basket woven modular furniture in graphic shades of smoke with ample white cushions comprises these zones.
The aft deck was designed to be a “put your feet up” area for cocktails, après dinner, or breakfast coffee.
Sunbathing, relaxing, grilling, cocktails or watching a football game were considered in the ergonomic design layout of the flybridge. The generous alfresco dining area offers an additional cooling comfort, thanks to the (50,000 Btu) supply of air conditioning.
Adjacent to the 12-seating dining table is an integrated galley unit, created by renowned Italian galley manufacturer, Boffi. This is featured as a centreline divider cabinet between the dining area and aft seating zones. An innovative sliding counter top allows for a Teppanyaki grill and sink to be revealed, whilst also creating additional serving area for a buffet-style lunch. A large TV on the aft side provides entertainment from the seating area. A substantial aft garage stores the water toys, leaving the decks and the flybridge uncluttered for entertaining.
Sanlorenzo Yachts built for the Americas are specifically designed from the very outset to be geared to the nuances of the market, such as the 60 hz electrical power supply.
The never-ending selection of materials and layout options are limited only by the owner’s imagination, ultimately bestowing complete personalization for each and every Sanlorenzo owner to indulge in their desires.
Careful consideration has been given to every detail of each space onboard, in order to deliver a message to relax and enjoy the sea and its serenity. The new SL104 reflects over 50 years of Tailor-Made customization, handcrafted Italian quality, and remarkable seaworthiness and performance.
Four Sanlorenzo Yachts are on display this week at MIBS, including the Americas Premiere of the award-winning SL94. The display is located opposite the Fountainbleau Hotel, 4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach.
