Sale of 13th Sanlorenzo SL78 yacht announced
by Chris Jefferies
Recently sold by Sanlorenzo Spain to a Northern European client, the new arrival will be based in Puerto Portals, Mallorca.
Currently under construction in Ameglia working to RINA standards, Hull 682 — as the yacht is currently known — will feature a four-cabin layout. All accommodation is provided on the lower deck with a full-beam owner’s suite, VIP stateroom and two twin cabins. Meanwhile, the crew quarters will allow for a staff of up to three people.
The 3.95 metre jet tender will be stored in an aft tender garage, leaving the upper deck free to provide uninterrupted views out to sea.
A notable trademark of the SL78 series is its bright and inviting 70GT interior, developed in collaboration with Officina Italiana Design, and this model will be no different, with lowered bulwarks and large floor-to-ceiling windows.
Power will come from the yard’s more powerful option — twin 1,622hp MTU 10V2000 M96L diesel engines for a top speed of 29 knots.
No further details have been divulged at this stage, but Sanlorenzo Spain hints at a “carefully tailored” specification, suggesting a highly involved owner.
Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the flagship Sanlorenzo 64 Steel, which is due to hit the water next year.
