The new luxury yacht called the “Sanlorenzo SL100 New”, designed by the popular Francesco Paszkowski made her debut appearance at the Genoa Boat Show in November 2009
The new interior decoration and the lay-out have been designed by Rodolfo Dordoni of Dordoni Architetti, a highly reputed Milan interior decoration studio. Dordoni had a different and new vision of the interior of a yacht. The key element of his vision is the freedom from visual barriers: on the SL100 New there is a deep and continuous vision from stern to bow, with an unusual field depth for this size.
The Sanlorenzo 100 ( Euro 3,950,000 ) has been among the most popular models of this iconic Italian shipyard.
After a broad and deep analysis of the concept, the Design Department of the shipyard, with the cooperation of different naval architects and designers, has updated the external lines to present-day requirements with delicate, but substantial touches on the gunwale line, on the windows, on the shape of the transom and the fly bridge. Francesco Paszkowski gave a solid contribution to outline definition.
One of the most significant new elements on the SL 100 New, are the much larger windows than on the previous SL 100 model. The motor yacht is available with or without hard top. Its outline, shape, poles, and the shading system are a completely new design. On the bathing platform an original shower system is mounted, composed by a pivoting arm which is hidden when not in use, on the teak part of the transom gunwale.
Many yachts, including luxury yachts, often experience complications associated with anchor systems. These problems are often related to the anchor tackle, slippage, the line connected to the anchor, and weight. The Sanlorenzo SL 100 New has developed a unique system that actually works to resolve all of the complications typically associated with anchors. There is a built in system that is controlled by hydraulics that releases the anchor that sits behind doors that pivot. The anchor is appropriately sized, the system releases only the amount of line necessary, and there will be no slippage. Many will consider this to be extremely beneficial.
Thanks to a 3D study, the designers have rationalized and optimized the engine room. A thick floating sandwich bulkhead filled with high-efficacy thermo and soundproof material divides the engine room from the guests and owners areas.
Somenew elements by Dordoni are: the light and “aerial” staircase, the bronze thin layers on the roof, the dining room on the front area of the main deck and the sofa under the front wind shield, instead of a technical area.
For the first time in the yachting industry, a large group of leading companies from the furniture-design sector participated to set up SL 100 New: Minotti (sofas), Boffi (kitchen), Cassina, Viabizzuna, Vola (taps) , Paola Lenti (fly bridge furniture).
On the lower deck, the Sanlorenzo Design Department worked closely with Dordoni to realize three equal cabins, of the same importance, connected by a wide lobby, devoted to relaxing or as a further occasional sleeping area.
The SL 100 New is powered by twin 1,790kW (2,435 HP) MTU 16V2000M93 engines which enable the superyacht to reach a maximum speed of 28 knots and a continuous cruising speed of 26 knots
