New Model: Sanlorenzo SL104

Renowned Italian Super Yacht builder Sanlorenzo presents the new SL104, receiving exterior design treatment from architects Franceso Paszkowski outside, and Rodolfo Dordoni inside. What long standing Sanlorezo collaborator Paszkowski for the SL104 presents a total redifinition to looks and echoes of this highly regard builder, with echoes of the 40 Alloy in the radar arch, new stern, and now having also hiding anchors. The main deck looks also less aggressive offering better comfort thanks to more height, with the raised forward pilot house also receiving a further movement to fore in order to offer a bigger flybridge deck. Although unless you see a Sanlorenzo 100, the model the new SL104 replaces next to each other this is very difficult to tell. A big change is also to the bathing platform with the SL104 having the longest platform ever seen on a Sanlorenzo with a bit of a new design here to the usual looks which have stayed with the Viareggio builder since the mid nineties. Further changes are also in the aft part of the flybridge use, now reserved as a sun worshippers paradise instead the usually tender stowage area. Milan interior designer Roldolfo Dordoni presented also an interior which looks more to luxury then to a lot of cabins with a three or four guest cabins plan. This last is quite standard in this size, with the three cabin plan being very unusual for a hundred footer. Crew space is for three or five in a two or three cabin plan. The SL104 has a fifteen degrees medium vee shaped hull, rather angled for this size with much of the competition usually offering flatter sections aft. Power is by twin MTU 2435hp which gives the SL104 a 28 knots wide open throttle performance, with a 26 knots all time cruise.
