With clean straight lines, a nearly vertical bow and tiered-decks, Sanlorenzo’s 44.5-metre Alloy superyacht series designed by Zuccon International Project, in collaboration with the Italian shipbuilder, is not only aesthetically-forward thinking, but also packs a range of standout features into less than 500 GT. With three units already cruising and five currently in-build, with delivery dates through 2023, clients have demonstrated a clear infatuation with Sanlorenzo’s Alloy model. Here, SuperYacht Times rounds up some of the Alloy’s greatest hits.Two-deck owner’s suite
Described by her builder as “the conceptual fulcrum of the project”, at 147 square-metres split between three levels, the owner’s apartment is a pleasant surprise on board a yacht her size. The massive living quarters provide owners with perfectly private space where they can enjoy spectacular views of their surroundings. The stateroom, located on the main deck, features a spacious walk-in closet, bathroom and a lobby. On the upper deck, an almost equally-sized area is split between an indoor studio and a large deck space to aft, complete with a swimming pool, relaxation area and more.
If being on a superyacht gets you close to the water, then the beach club on Sanlorenzo’s Alloy will get you even closer. The 102 square-metre beach club has hydraulic fold out platforms to port, starboard and transom, opening the space entirely to the water. Here, guests can swim, sunbathe or play with the superyacht’s array of toys. Her tender garage and storage space are situated towards her bow in order to accommodate the vast beach club area. In addition to the beach club’s open-air ambience, a bar and gym are also found here.Flexible interior layout
Integral to the conception of the Alloy was the notion that not all superyacht owners are the same, which means that they have different needs that require alternative layouts. Sanlorenzo wanted to ensure that the Alloy had a flexible interior design, to accommodate any owner's demands. The aforementioned owner’s apartment can be configured in a multitude of ways. It can have a mezzanine-like set up as part of the owner’s suite or it can be closed off to be used as a gym for all guests, opening space in the beach club. An additional layout choice would use the upper level of the main deck as the wheelhouse, allowing for the upper deck to be dedicated as the owner’s deck. With this layout, the bottom half of the suite could be used as a dining area, cinema room or anything else. The head of Sanlorenzo’s superyacht division, Antonio Santella, remarked that many of the clients he had met with were, “each interested in different interior layouts.”
With designers such as Zuccon International Project and Liaigre completing interiors onboard some of the previous units of the Alloy, her interior aesthetic can be designed to the bespoke needs of her owner. Though no two Alloys are the same, it is a certainty that the finest materials will be used throughout the superyacht. Interior aesthetics on previous units in the Alloy series have ranged from New-England style to a fusion of French and Asian influences, each enhancing the superyacht’s connection to her surroundings while accentuating owners’ own stylistic preferences. One recently delivered unit of the Alloy is finished with an emphasis on natural materials such as elm and polished eucalyptus, complemented by the integration of two terrariums in the main saloon.Tons of deck space
Besides her notable beach club and private owner’s deck, the Alloy features ample deck space for guests to sunbathe, dine al fresco, go for a swim or to just unwind. Her sun deck, at 15-metres long, is equipped with a bar, grill and al fresco dining table, shaded by a partial hardtop roof. The space is also complete with sun loungers both fore and aft. Down an exterior staircase, her upper deck features a semi-enclosed space with more sun beds and a sheltered lounge area. At her main deck, an additional exposed lounge area with ample seating and a sheltered al fresco dining area aft of the main saloon is found.For more information about Sanlorenzo’s cutting-edge Alloy series, use the contact information below.
