Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo has debuted its 33 metre SP110 at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
Unveiled on the water as part of a gala event yesterday (September 5), the hydrojet-powered sports yacht is the first in the shipyard's SP series - or 'Smart Performance' range - and marks Sanlorenzo's entry into the sports yacht market.
The project is a collaboration between Bernardo Zuccon, who worked on the exterior, with Marco Arnaboldi designing the hull and Piero Lissoni helming the interiors. Tilli Antonelli at Sanlorenzo product development was also integral to the project.
The goal for the SP110 was to create a boat that was high-performing and liveable with maximum energy efficiency.
To this end, 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. Meanwhile, 6kW monocrystalline solar panels are fitted on the wheelhouse, and the energy recovered in this method can power yacht's hotel load for several hours.
The SP110 features a two-deck layout with an eight-metre beam and "unexpected" interior volumes, according to the shipyard. One of the key design points on board is a split-level deck, which creates a feeling of "lightness" and "space", according to Piero Lissoni.
Bernardo Zuccon said it was "complex" to create new stylistic features that balance Sanlorenzo's heritage while giving the model a new identity. The result had to be "very recognisable and where there is an almost natural cross-reference of the design process towards a familiar logic in terms of the range and of the products", he explained.
The yacht features a generous 50 square metre aft deck lounge that is well-connected to the interior of the boat via a sliding glass window. Up at the bow, there is a dining area and sunbathing zone.
The SP110 can reach top speeds of 40 knots, with a cruising speed of 33 knots and an economic speed of 30 knots. Tender storage is found under the deck of the cockpit.
"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 was launched in May and has been christened Almax. Five units have been sold so far.
Sanlorenzo also debuted its 27.4 metre model called the SD90/S at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
