Behind the scenes: The Sanlorenzo 500EXP range

Written by Saskia Henn

Sitting at 47-metres long, the Sanlorenzo explorers were specially developed by a research and development team to be “off-road superyachts.” Following the success of the previous 460EXP models, the new 500EXP range has gotten off to a good start. Three yachts are currently under construction at their La Spezia facility, with the first unit in the line, Ocean Dreamwalker III, already with a cruising season under her belt.

As every owner has unique needs and intentions for their superyacht, Sanlorenzo has created a wide range of custom options for the 500EXP model.

If you intend to veer far off the beaten track, you might be interested in adding an ice-class steel hull. This would guarantee that your explorations remain safe and reliable, even in difficult conditions. The colour of the hull can also be altered to suit your tastes.

For those looking to relax on board and take advantage of their time spent outside, including a pool or outdoor lounging area may be a good decision. If staying in shape during your excursions is a priority, then consider building a gym onboard. Are you hoping to host gatherings while you are off in far-away places? Then perhaps incorporating a saloon or impressive dining area would be a useful addition.

Take advantage of the boundless distances between destinations by installing helicopter landing pads, like the one built into the 500EXP Ocean Dreamwalker III. Should you require room for your jet skis or water planes, the extended large aft deck which is five metres bigger than the 460EXP, has plenty of space for everything you wish to bring with you on your excursions.

When it comes to interior design, every yacht owner has unique tastes they can integrate into their surroundings by using their own designer. While the exterior of the 500EXP series is designed by Francesco Paszkowski, the interior is left up to your imagination. You can pick out your own interior colours and styles to make your superyacht specific to your preferences.
