Sanlorenzo Spain, the exclusive agents for Sanlorenzo in Spain and the Balearic Islands, are proud to announce the launch and delivery of the new build 24.6m SL78 yacht ‘BARRACUDA’ at Sanlorenzo’s Ameglia facility. SL78-682 ‘BARRACUDA’ was sold to a Sanlorenzo Spain client earlier this year. SL78-682 is the second SL78 sold and delivered by Sanlorenzo Spain since the start of 2018, along with SL78 hull SL78-686 which was also sold by Sanlorenzo Spain in January 2018 and was delivered to her owner earlier this month. Sanlorenzo SL78 ‘BARRACUDA’ has just in the past few days arrived at her home berth in Puerto Portals, Mallorca.
SL78-682 ‘BARRACUDA’ is the 13th hull of the Sanlorenzo SL78 model, which was first introduced to the market at Cannes Yachting Festival 2016. Sanlorenzo has carefully designed the SL78 to adhere to its 'innovation into tradition' philosophy which acts to maintain the heritage styling which allows each Sanlorenzo to be easily identifiable and timeless. As with all Sanlorenzo yachts, each SL78 can be tailored to each owner's exacting customisation requirements, contrasting other 'production style' yachts in this category. Her specification has been carefully tailored to meet the requests of her owner, who plans to cruise extensively in the Mediterranean over the next few seasons.
This new build unit is powered by the more powerful twin 1622 HP MTU 10V2000M96L engine option, which can achieve a maximum speed of 29 knots. Luxurious accommodation for eight guests is divided into four cabins - her spacious owner’s stateroom is located amidships on her lower deck along with a VIP stateroom and two twin berth cabins. There is additional crew accommodation on board for up to three crew members. Her flybridge boasts spacious and uninterrupted relaxation spaces due to the storage of the tender in an innovative aft garage system. A jet tender of up to 3.95m can easily be deployed using an innovative hydraulic launching system. Unparalleled natural light is achieved throughout her interior, including her main deck living area which benefit from optimised bulwarks, allowing sunlight to cascade through large windows and contributing to unhindered panoramas of the surrounding coastline.
Sanlorenzo SL78-682 is the 10th new-build Sanlorenzo superyacht out of the total of 11 new build Sanlorenzo superyachts sold by Sanlorenzo Spain, and the third SL78 unit sold by Sanlorenzo Spain since the model’s initial launch in September 2016.
The upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival (11th September – 16th September 2018) will mark the ‘World Premiere’ of two exciting new Sanlorenzo models, the Sanlorenzo SL102 and Sanlorenzo SX76. The groundbreaking 31.1m SL102 features an innovative asymmetric design whilst drawing on the timeless heritage styling and unique innovations for which the Sanlorenzo SL line is known. The 23.4m Sanlorenzo SX76 model will also be introduced as the latest addition to the crossover SX range. The much awaited premiere of the SX76 model comes exactly a year after the launch of the commercially successful SX88 model at Cannes Yachting Festival 2017.
