New Model: Sanlorenzo SL78

Sanlorenzo replaces the mythical nearly two decades produced 72 with the new entry level SL78 born as project SL76 in 2015.  Just as the new SL86 launched last year in Cannes the new SL78 is designed by the studio of Mauro Mucheli's Officina Italiana, a collaboration which should bring a new era from the highly esteemed Italian motor and super yacht builder.  Micheli the man behind the new Riva's from the 1990's onward till today, brings a fresh approach to Sanlorenzo conservative style, from larger window profiles to the sheer line which in both these new models features a soft cut in order to allow for full visibility from the saloon windows.  Some Sanlorenzo traits are still kept, as the split level saloon, separate galley area, and the hardtop which now comes from the larger models into the smaller ones.  Another appreciated solution of the new SL78 will be a free space on the flybridge with tender located in a garage aft.  Just before the fall 2016 boat show season kicked off in Cannes, Sanlorenzo had three further SL78 being built.
