Sanlorenzo completes triple launch as Y4H hits the water

23 February 2017• Written by Chris Jefferies

The 37.95 metre Sanlorenzo yacht Y4H has been launched in Italy, during a busy week for the prolific yard.

Part of the SD126 series, Y4H was Sanlorenzo’s third yacht launch in five days. The ninth SL86 yacht Taiji was recently splashed for a French client, while the SL96 Francamarina also hit the water earlier this month with her Italian owner looking on.

Featuring exterior styling by Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski, Y4H was built from a GRP hull and superstructure for a repeat client from Germany. Her naval architecture was developed in house with a semi-bulbous bow, she features a beam of 8 metres and a maximum draught of 2.33 metres.

Accommodation is for ten guests split across five staterooms, including an owner’s cabin, two doubles and two twins, while the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to six people.

No further interior details have yet been revealed about this tri-deck motor yacht, but the large expanses of glazing in the superstructure hint at a light saloon with great views out to sea.

A semi-displacement cruiser, Y4H is powered by twin MTU diesel engines for a top speed of 17 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 11 knots, she will have a maximum range of 3,000 nautical miles, Sanlorenzo adds.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the flagship Sanlorenzo 64Steel, which is due to hit the water in 2019, and the third hull in the Sanlorenzo 52Steel series, slated for a 2018 launch.
