Italian yard Sanlorenzo has lifted the lid on several new models at the Venice Boat Show, including a 27.4 metre sustainabilty-focused model called the SD90/S.
The SD90/s builds on the success of the existing SD range, which includes the SD96 and SD118. Key differences include hybrid propulsion, an optimised hull design and careful consideration as to the onboard materials to produce a more eco-focused result.
It has been designed by Zuccon International, with interiors by Patricia Urquiola and Philippe Briand also contributing to the research into the yacht’s efficient design.
“In the first conversations we had from the beginning with the family, both Massimo [Perotti] and his team were very attentive; they were all very keen to listen to what you bring as a designer from outside the nautical world,” commented Patricia Urquiola, designer and architect.
“SD90/s suitably demonstrates that there was a great willingness to think about many other aspects," she continued.
Eco-focused design features include panelling made from recycled paper on the lower deck and recycled glass that forms a translucent filter on the aft.
Meanwhile, every appliance on board as been meticulously chosen for the highest quality and lowest consumption, including specialised materials for reducing electric load.
In terms of liveability, the new model has been designed with the alfresco lifestyle in mind. A large window in the saloon can remain open, creating a continuous connection to the cockpit, while a generous bow area allows owners to make the most of the sunshine. Two configurations are on offer, ensuring all types of prospective owner can be accommodated.
Depending on the propulsion package, the SD90/s will be able to reach top speeds of 17 knots with a fuel capacity of 13,000 litres.
Sanlorenzo also took the opportunity of the Venice Boat Show to unveil its first jet-powered sports yacht, the SP110, while Bluegame presented the brand new BG54. Offering a large stern area and flexible layout configuration, the newest model marks a hattrick of grand unveilings for Sanlorenzo and Bluegame.
