Sanlorenzo 60th Anniversary

Sanlorenzo Spain was glad to participate in the Sanlorenzo Elite Days last weekend in the Sanlorenzo Superyacht Facility in La Spezia. This weekend of brand immersion for both new clients and valued customers also marked the 60th anniversary since the foundation of Sanlorenzo in 1958.

In addition to having the full Sanlorenzo fleet at their disposal for visits and sea trials, prospective clients and Sanlorenzo owners were invited to participate in a series of unique brand experiences. These activities included luxurious day cruises along the coast to Porto Venere, visits to a Sanlorenzo Museum located in a converted freight container, a display of cutting edge BMW automobiles and visits to a pop-up modern art gallery inside a 460EXP superyacht presently in construction. A Gala dinner also marked the 60th anniversary of the shipyard in style with a guest private performance by the globally renowned signer Andrea Bocelli.

In the magnificent backdrop of this 
milestone event, the first 500EXP unit was launched with a Buddhist ceremony, in respect to the traditions of her young Chinese owner.

The evolution of the 460EXP model into the new 500EXP demonstrates the meticulous predisposition for personalisation that has always been at the core of Sanlorenzo SpA.
Developed in close collaboration with her owner, the first 500EXP unit has a longer stern area in comparison to the 460EXP. This has allowed her to feature a 'touch and go' landing area for helicopters, thus meeting a specific customisation requirement by her experienced owner. This larger stern area further contributes to the 500EXP's Explorer status, ensuring the most authentic sense of adventure on the open sea due to allowing more storage volume for tenders, toys and equipment while at sea.

In its 47 metres of length and 500 gross tons, the new 500EXP model revolutionises the concept of the Explorer concept, demonstrating itself as a luxury superyacht with sufficient autonomy to allow once in a lifetime voyages to exotic and distant destinations. The 500EXP is designed for extensive global cruising, her ability to do so has been achieved without compromising her design, elegance and owner's comfort.

The recently acquired Sanlorenzo Superyacht Division in La Spezia boasts over 50,000 square metres of production space. This new facility is dedicated to designing and building metal Sanlorenzo superyachts above 40 metres in length.
