SL118 Finalist in Motor Boat Awards

Posted Date: December 04, 2014     By: Sanlorenzo Americas

The Motor Boat Awards, sponsored by Pantaenius and hosted by Motor Boat & Yachting and, are the industry's ultimate definition of excellence.  The nine categories for boats cover all types and sizes of motor-powered craft from 18ft starter boats to 140ft custom yachts.

The SL118 is nominated in the Custom Yacht category for the Motor Boat Awards 2015. The winners will be announced at the ceremony on January 12, 2015.

In February the yard launched H1 – hull No.1 – of the SL118 series. To date, two 118's have been delivered and three are under construction. The SL118 is an evolution of the SL104, its lines stretched and enhanced by introducing a few cleverly designed features.

‘The exterior styling is so important – it provides brand recognition,’ says Andrea Mottino, the model’s project manager. ‘The Italian designer impressed his unmistakable signature to the SL118 exterior line, giving life to an updated version of the purest Sanlorenzo style. But H1 is not only a piece of design, she is an efficient yacht featuring excellent performance. As for the (efficient) fuel consumption, the yacht’s deep V hull design utilizes the latest resin-infusion technology with a light, hybrid carbon/composite superstructure, so her performance and handling are both impeccable and efficient. The molds were CNC-milled and the project was developed in 3D for millimeter-perfect piping and cable runs,’ concludes Mottino.
