Sanlorenzo confirms its second position in the world ranking of top yacht builders
Showboats International  has just released the Global Order Book 2016, the annual world ranking of the top international superyacht builders above 80 feet (24 meters). 
Despite an exclusive production of unique models, each one made-to-measure according to her owner's requests, Sanlorenzo confirms its second position in the world ranking, right after the Azimut-Benetti Group and still above the Ferretti Group, which Sanlorenzo overtook in 2014.
The Global Order Book has been the leading guide of the superyacht industry since its launch in 1992. The guide is updated annually, giving the exact scope of construction activity within the superyacht industry, based on its comprehensive data of the vessels currently in build.
The global map of luxury yacht builders (755 total units under construction) remains the same as in 2015, where Italy dominates all the other builder nations with 286 units, the Netherlands are in second position with 68 units, followed by Turkey with 71 units. Surprisingly, Taiwan reaches the fourth position for the first time ever with 74 units under construction, overtaking the USA with 57 units and the UK with 64 units, respectively at fifth and sixth position in the ranking.
Sanlorenzo has been maintaining a steady increase in construction for the past few years, increasing from 37 units in 2011 to 54 units in 2016.
Italy confirms its absolute leadership in the superyacht business and Sanlorenzo has proven once again to be one of the most stable and well-established manufacturers in the luxury marine sector.
