The renowned Italian yacht builder Sanlorenzo was founded in 1958 near Florence. Like many yacht builders in the sixties and seventies, Sanlorenzo built its yachts of wood until the shipyard launched its first fibreglass vessel in 1985. In 2007, Sanlorenzo diversified into the construction of aluminium-hulled superyachts with the delivery of the first yacht from its 40 Alloy series. The Superyacht Division of the group hasn’t stopped growing since then and today Sanlorenzo is capable of building yachts up to 64 metres in its Viareggio and La Spezia facilities.
Since 1995, when Sanlorenzo launched its first 30-metre plus yacht, the shipyard has completed 129 motor yachts over 30 metres according to our database. These yachts have a combined total length of 4,634 metres with an average length of 35.9 metres and an average volume of 284 gross tonnes (GT). In the past ten years, the shipyard has completed a total of 112 motor yachts from 30 metres up.
