New Model: Sanlorenzo SL86

It is always a hard decision to replace a best selling model, but earlier this 2015 year Sanlorenzo announced the revered 82 model was being replaced by the new 86. A huge model for Sanlorenzo, the 82 was in the mid nineties an important novelty for the brand. Just imagine how many other brands did change there 24 meter pocket sized super yacht since then, yet that Sanlorenzo stayed there with a little bit of a make up boost in 2006 and most important it kept on selling. Now after twenty years Sanlorenzo launches the new SL86 in Cannes its new pocket super yacht representing important changes, starting from the design who now is in the hands of Mauro Mucheli and Sergio Beretta Officina Italiana, in charge of Riva since the nineties and a trend setter in recent years. The SL86 has the modern Sanlorenzo DNA see feeling lower on the water, plus some new differences as the curved shear line in the first third part of the hull, and as mentioned by the PR of the shipyard the use of larger windows especially those serving the main deck.  As any Sanlorenzo the SL86 does not try to change the World but it is all about a traditional Italian motor yacht which never gets old however you see it.  The SL86 has sold already five units on plan, and after its Cannes baptism above I am sure the order book for this model will get fuller over time.
