The first ever Sanlorenzo superyacht fitted with a helicopter landing pad was recently put to the test as the 47-metre Ocean Dreamwalker III received her first visit from a helicopter. The 500EXP has become the flagship of Sanlorenzo’s Explorer line of superyachts, building on the success of the smaller 42-metre 460EXP model which was first launched in 2015.Photo: Sanlorenzo
The 500EXP came about as a special request from the yacht’s owner who was looking for a vessel to cruise the Pacific Ocean with where helicopter capabilities on a yacht can go a long way considering the vast distances between destinations. Sanlorenzo went back to the drawing board and customised the existing 460EXP platform by extending the aft deck by five metres while retaining the overall stylish explorer look of the vessel.Photo: Sanlorenzo
Following the launch of Ocean Dreamwalker III in May this year, Sanlorenzo announced that another four units of this flagship explorer yacht are under construction including a special Ice Class version which is being built for a Dutch client.Photo: Sanlorenzo
Ocean Dreamwalker III will be on display at this year’s Monaco Yacht Show in September.
