94ft Sanlorenzo Yacht invited to the Miami River Art Fair

Sanlorenzo Yachts, the Italian shipyard renowned for their production of tailor-made motoryachts from 62ft to 151ft – exhibited a unique 94ft motoryacht during the week of Art Basel in Miami, Florida.

Held in Downtown Miami, with over 200 artists and nearly 35 countries represented, the Miami River Art Fair provided a special event to showcase fine art alongside an internationally award-winning Sanlorenzo Yacht.

Two nights of this Fine Art Exhibition were given over to VIP guests to enjoy previews on December 3rd and 4th 2012.  The first event was in conjunction with an ocean conservation charity called ‘The International SeaKeepers Society’ (www.SeaKeepers.org) and the second evening was a Black Tie VIP event.

It was most apt for the Sanlorenzo SL94 to be selected to attend these prestigious opening nights, having been a recent recipient of the Environmental Protection Award” from ShowBoats Design Awards, and also winning the “2012 Best Imported Motoryacht from 90ft-100ft” at the AIM Media Group Marine Awards.

VIP guests enjoyed a glass of Champagne onboard, whilst viewing the bespoke hand-carved Walnut and bleached Oak interior.  The yacht was moored alongside a “one-of-a-kind Riverwalk Sculpture Mall”, which featured monumental sculpture on the banks of the historic Miami River.

 “It is fitting for an Art Connoisseur to experience a truly Made-to-Measure motoryacht,” commented Alastair Callender, Creative Director of Sanlorenzo Americas. “There is much synergy between the intricate detail, suitable waiting time and expert craftsmanship of a unique piece of Fine Art, and the custom-build of a yacht with the highest pedigree.”

This 94ft yacht demonstrates Sanlorenzo’s niche in the yacht market: where every yacht has been tailor-made, with a bespoke interior design since 1958. There have never been two Sanlorenzo yachts built that are the same.

The SL94 offers an innovative layout, with four staterooms to accommodate 10 guests.  She has a magnificent focal point in the salon, with sculptural grid work of burnished hide leathers, laced with stainless steel accents, supported on a freestanding stainless structure. A vast area on the flybridge can be enjoyed thanks to extraordinary space utilization, which enables the tender to be stored in the garage below. 

Sanlorenzo Yachts that are built for the Americas are designed from the outset to be specifically geared to the nuisances of the region, including the 60-cycle Americanization of the onboard electrics, additional air conditioning and innovative layout solutions.

The never-ending selection of materials, options and custom layouts of every Sanlorenzo follows the Made-to-Measure philosophy that owners of a Sanlorenzo Yacht can indulge in their every desire.

Sanlorenzo Americas currently have four unique yachts that can be viewed by appointment, at Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale. Each demonstrates the highest level of quality and tailored craftsmanship, which is sure to surpass one’s expectations of a “luxury yacht”.

Sanlorenzo shipyards were established in Viareggio in 1958 and up to 1985 the production consisted of semi-custom boats that were totally wooden-made. In 1985, the first Sanlorenzo fibreglass flying bridge was born, the SL57. In 1999 the company moved to Ameglia into a natural park area (Sanlorenzo is certified “UNI EN ISO 14001” which guarantees the utmost respect for the environment). The lines of the Sanlorenzo fleet have always been extremely classic, never-aging.

In April 2005, Massimo Perotti took over from Giovanni Jannetti the shipyards that become Sanlorenzo Spa.

Massimo Perotti, after bringing to completion many of the most original and successful products of the sector, decides to leave the industry figures where he had built his background to join a tradition of absolute perfection and small production numbers. The Sanlorenzo philosophy remains focused on “customization and total dedication to the customer, top notch quality and personal relationships”.

Today Sanlorenzo is based on two divisions: the Ameglia Division, for the production of fibreglass motor yachts ranging between 62 and 118 ft., and the Viareggio Division, for the production of navettas in composite material with a semi-displacement hull from 92 to 122 ft. and superyachts in metal (aluminium and steel), from 40 to 60 metres.
