Video: First look at in-build Sanlorenzo 44 Alloy yacht

Italian yard Sanlorenzo has released a behind-the-scenes first look video of the first hull in the Sanlorenzo 44 Alloy series.

The yacht is the first of three hulls in the series currently under construction at the yard’s dedicated superyacht facility in La Spezia. The new models were developed in collaboration with the Zuccon International Project design studio — a first for a Sanlorenzo yachting project.

The first 43.9 metre hull in the series is currently slated for a 2019 delivery.

Following the sale of the first three models, the yard announced that it will be introducing a new model to its range of aluminium yachts in 2020.

Massimo Perotti, chairman and CEO of Sanlorenzo, said: “I love to see the birth of a new model, to pore over drawings with my colleagues, discuss every single detail and improve, improve again until we finally see the real project and finalise it with the owner, who places his dream in our hands. The most satisfying part is to see later in the water exactly what we had in mind.”

The teaser image below does hint at a few key stylistic features, including a multitude of rectangular portholes and large expanses of glazing cut into the superstructure.

The interior volume is understood to be 440GT — a significant increase on the outgoing Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy's 338GT. Vital statistics include an 8.9 metre beam and a maximum draught of 2.3 metres.

Power will come from a twin-screw MTU drivetrain for a top speed of 23 knots and comfortable cruising at 21 knots. No further details have been disclosed, with tender storage and total accommodation capacity unclear at this stage.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the Sanlorenzo 64 Steel, which is due to hit the water in La Spezia in 2019 as the yard's flagship yacht.
