Delivering more than 800 yachts in 60 years has provided Sanlorenzo with a wealth of experience in building boats. Founded on Italy’s Arno river in 1958, the yard moved to Viareggio in 1972 to take advantage of growing demand, before branching out into composite construction in 1985 with the launch of the SL57. Over the years, the feedback and individual experiences of more than 750 yacht owners have driven Sanlorenzo’s new designs and innovations — this approach is embodied in the yard’s current flagship yacht, the 52 Steel. Built at the yard’s new Sanlorenzo Superyachts facility in La Spezia, this 52 metre model was first introduced to the yachting public at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show.
