Sanlorenzo reveals 33m jet-powered SP110 in Venice

30 May 2022• Written by Katia Damborsky

Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo has taken the opportunity of the Venice Boat Show to unveil its first jet-powered superyacht, the SP110. 

The 33 metre sports yacht is the first in the shipyard's SP series - or 'Smart Performance' range - and represents Sanlorenzo's entry into the sports yacht market. The first hull was launched earlier this month and christened Almax.

The project is a collaboration between Bernardo Zuccon (exterior design), Marco Arnaboldi (hull design), Piero Lissoni  (interiors) and Tilli Antonelli at Sanlorenzo product development. Sanlorenzo wanted to achieve a boat that was built for both performance and livability but with the lowest fuel consumption.

The SP110 features a two-deck layout with an eight-metre beam and "unexpected" interior volumes, according to the shipyard. Laminated glass covers 80 per cent of the boat with a deckhouse designed to accommodate solar panels that allow the yacht to sit at anchor for a few hours without the use of generators. 

Zuccon International Project designed the yacht’s exterior, which has been likened to the profile of a great white shark. "The SP110 tries to question certain canons that characterise the performance boats we are used to," said Bernardo Zuccon. 

Sliding glass doors open aft lead to a two-storey atrium offering a view of both the upper and lower decks from the stern platform. The upper level features a lounge and dining area with sliding glass doors that open to starboard offering access to the sun lounge at the bow. Accommodation is found on the lower deck configured as an owner's suite, two VIP cabins and a guest cabin - all equipped with en suite bathrooms - with cabins for a crew of five.

"While respecting the stylistic features that have historically characterised this type of boat, such as the aerodynamic and extremely organic surfaces, with Tilli Antonelli we arrived at a compromise to conceive a boat dialogue between dynamism and a liveability that is not normally perceived on boats of this size," said Zuccon.

A fractional propulsion system allows the yacht to move around using just one engine, a pair or all three, offering owners greater autonomy and lower fuel consumption. The hull has been optimised for hydro jet propulsion by Marco Arnaboldi and will be able to reach a maximum speed of 40 knots. This type of propulsion is an advantage over propeller propulsion because it is less sensitive to variations in the boat's weight.

"The design of the SP110 embodies Sanlorenzo's vision in which the founding principles of sustainability, comfort and exclusivity converge, projecting the shipyard into the future with a boat that completely moves away from conventional models in the same market segment and at the same time sets a new benchmark for the models that will follow," the shipyard said.

The first hull is due to be delivered later this year. Sanlorenzo also revealed designs for a 27.4 metre model called the SD90/S.
