Sanlorenzo Yachts SL78 Sag Harbor Edition Overview
Italian builder Sanlorenzo worked closely with Officina Italiana
Design to give its newest model, the SL78, several forward-looking
design features that will eventually work their way through its entire
line. The redesigned bow area—which includes lounges, a table,
sunbathing areas, and even a sun shade—transforms what is typically
empty space into a functional social area. The upper deck offers one of
the widest and best arranged spaces in its category with sunbeds, a
glass rail astern for unobstructed views and a table for al fresco
dining under a sporty-looking hardtop.
A Sanlorenzo Americas
exclusive, the SL78 Sag Harbor Edition includes an electro hydraulic
folding mast option which allows entry into highly sought after harbors
where bridge clearance can be a hindrance. As its name suggests, the
need for such a market leading technological innovation was identified
in Sag Harbor, NY; a yachting hot-bed in the summers and an office
location of Sanlorenzo Americas.
The designers also included
larger windows in the hull and superstructure to increase natural light
and the sense of interior space. The large windows, combined with
lowered bulwarks, provide unobstructed views from the main saloon. The
SL78’s full-beam master stateroom also has windows to the sea, as do the
three other guest staterooms below-decks.
The sleek lines of the
new SL78 are further enhanced thru the minimalistic interior designed by
Marty Lowe. Mid-century modernism is evoked featuring a balanced
mixture of contemporary styling. Subtly restrained stained oak woodwork
and soft lacquers are juxtaposed against a dramatically imperfect and
irregular plank flooring which shows the track of the saw cutting
creating unique overlaps of color effects and texture.
with modern elegance and undertones of minimalism, this sophisticated
décor features well-tailored furniture and fixtures by Minotti, RH
modern, Flos, Zucchetti and Roda. The stone dining table is surrounded
by the iconic, award winning DU 3 chair designed by Rinaldi in 1953 and
recently reintroduced by Poltrana Frau. Supple leathers deftly layered
with luxurious Italian embroidered linens and cashmere add yet another
dimension to this rich décor scheme.
The technical features on the
SL78 are the same as the SL86 and of most of the larger SL line
motoryachts including the flagship SL118 without foregoing quality.
Features such as floating floors and ceilings ensure comfort with
reduced vibration and noise while the vacuum infusion process produces
an optimized hull and superstructure. Further technical enhancements
optioned by Sanlorenzo Americas include 60hz cycle US electric, Tier 3
compliant MTU engines, tropical A/C, twin generators, and other
redundant systems promising peace of mind cruising regardless of
