The first images of the 44-metre Sanlorenzo explorer La La Land (previously known as Project X-Space) have been released by her central agency for charter, IYC. Delivered this year as the first in the shipyard's X-Space series, construction began in 2021 with details on the superyacht kept tightly under wraps until now.
Speaking about the design, Bernardo Zuccon said: "The X-Space project was born with the desire, not to create a wonderful floating structure, but to create a wonderful vessel for life."
The yacht is designed specifically around privacy, with the upper deck entirely dedicated to the owner. This includes a private apartment, study, living room and large master cabin that leads directly onto a private terrace at the bow. The bow is arranged with a 30-square-metre sunbed area and swimming pool.
The wheelhouse and captain’s cabin meanwhile have been moved onto the deck above, while the placement of the owner’s cabin on the upper deck has freed up the main deck, which traditionally features the master suite.
"I think it has never been so important as it has in this project to seek to identify with the owner, who will be the great commander of this boat, hence the desire to create an entire deck dedicated to their needs," added Zuccon.
Another key design tenet is the amount of glass featured throughout the design. It is, Lissoni said, "a boat almost entirely made of glass."
Large panes of glass and large windows are found throughout, while the portholes in cabins have been replaced with "glass walls". This helps "eliminate the barriers" between the exterior and interior of the yacht, the yard said.
Lissoni added: "The interior has forced its hand on the exterior and the exterior has been so elastic and so well designed that the interior has almost adapted itself in a totally natural way."
The aft area of the La La Land’s main deck is a spacious terrace with an 18-square-metre pool overlooking the sea. An open-air living room for guests leads aft to a plush lounging area with two sofas.
La La Land has an estimated range of 4,000 nautical miles at a speed of 10 knots.Read More/Tecnomar's radical catamaran This Is It joins the charter fleet
