Project: Sanlorenzo SL86

Sanlorenzo starts an important new course and with this extend the collaboration with renowned design team of Mauro Miceli and his Officina Italiana studio onto its entry level planning range. During a press conference at the Dusseldorf boat show Sanlorenzo unveiled projects for the SL76 and SL86 which will replace the successful and nearly two decades standing 72 and 82 models. It is an important move from Sanlorenzo and a replacement of two important models, which even when still in production always got the admiration of being timeless classic yachts. As the rendering above for SL86 shows, the new course of Sanlorenzo will feature large windows in both the super-structure serving the living, and the lower deck for the cabins. Additional features will be the option of a larger extended bathing platform with hi-lo launch; this increasing space for an extra tender or allowing that of a larger rib.  On plan the SL86 is offered with two interior layouts; the main difference but important option is all about the galley this available on the main deck, or below in the crew area.  In the lower deck galley choice the VIP suite will move further forward. The SL86 will also feature technical advances such as vacuum infusion for the hull construction, floating floor to minimize vibration, and hull hydrodynamics which improve consumption at cruse.  Power options for the SL86 start from twin MTU of 1622hp up to 1947hp units. Top speed is 31 knots from the large MTU engine option.
