Sanlorenzo yacht Haiia hosts floating gallery for Venice Biennale

Sanlorenzo yacht Haiia hosts floating gallery for Venice Biennale

One of the most head-turning guests at the recent Venice Biennale art exhibition wasn’t a model or an artist, but a superyacht. The 36.5 metre Sanlorenzo yacht Haiia made a big splash in the floating city earlier this month, hosting an on-board exhibition from May 5-8.

Launched in 2015 as part of the SL118 series, Haiia was built from a GRP hull and superstructure to a design by Francesco Paskowski. As eye-catching as her exterior is, it was her art-filled interior that made her one of the most exclusive galleries at Venice Biennale.

Invited guests were able to admire a selection of artworks on board from Italian artist Alighiero Boetti, while contemporary elements included items designed by Philippe Starck, Marcel Breuer, Jasper Morrison, Antonio Citterio, Rodolfo Dordoni, Charles Eames and Paola Lenti.

Accommodation on board Haiia is for ten guests split between five staterooms, including a main-deck owner’s cabin equipped with a Ciclotte exercise bike and a superyacht office. Further guest accommodation is provided below decks, with two VIP cabins, a twin cabin and a fourth cabin that can be converted into a media room.

Power comes from a pair of 2,199hp MTU 16V2000 M94 diesel engines that propel Haiia to a sporty top speed of 28 knots. When trimmed back to her cruising speed of 12 knots she has a maximum range of 1,845 nautical miles, thanks to a total fuel capacity of 137,000 litres.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the new Sanlorenzo SX88 series, which is due to make its debut at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival.
