Sanlorenzo, a prestigious shipyard with a rich history, has long been synonymous with luxury yacht craftsmanship and innovation. Founded in 1958 in Ameglia, Italy, by Gianfranco Cecchi and Giuliano Pecchia, Sanlorenzo has since become one of the most revered names in the world of superyacht construction with building facilities located in Ameglia, Viareggio and La Spezia.
In its early years, Sanlorenzo focused on building traditional wooden sailing boats, quickly gaining a reputation for their attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship. As the demand for motor yachts began to rise in the 1960s, Sanlorenzo adapted to the changing market and shifted its focus to the production of high-quality motor yachts.
Throughout the decades, Sanlorenzo established itself as a leader in the yachting industry by embracing technological advancements while maintaining a deep respect for traditional craftsmanship. The shipyard's commitment to excellence, innovative design, and dedication to client satisfaction set it apart from its competitors.
Sanlorenzo shipyard has established itself as a specialist in the construction of tailor-made luxury yachts. With a relentless pursuit of excellence and a deep understanding of the desires and preferences of yacht owners, Sanlorenzo has honed its craftsmanship to deliver unparalleled levels of customisation and personalisation in a wide range of yacht models made of GRP, aluminum and steel.
One of Sanlorenzo's specialties lies in its ability to seamlessly blend timeless elegance with contemporary design. The shipyard's yachts boast graceful lines, refined proportions, and attention to detail, resulting in vessels that exude both sophistication and innovation bringing the latest and most advanced technologies. From sleek exteriors to luxurious interiors, each element is carefully crafted to create a harmonious and captivating ambiance.
Notable deliveries and models
As the demand for larger and more luxurious yachts grew, Sanlorenzo expanded its offerings and introduced its flagship models, such as the SD series and the full aluminum Alloy superyacht range. These superyachts combined elegance, performance, and luxurious amenities, solidifying Sanlorenzo's position as a leading builder of custom-made yachts.
In recent years, Sanlorenzo has continued to push boundaries with groundbreaking designs, such as the SX series. The SX models introduced a new concept of crossover yachts, seamlessly blending the attributes of a motor yacht and an explorer vessel. In 2017, the first Steel unit was introduced, Seven Sins, which showcases Sanlorenzo's expertise in customisation for larger vessels. With a sleek exterior and luxurious interior designed by Officina Italiana Design, Seven Sins embodies the elegance and craftsmanship for which Sanlorenzo is renowned. Today, the Sanlorenzo Steel range spreads from 52m to 73m. Attila, the 64m superyacht delivered in 2019, stands out as one of the shipyard's largest and most impressive deliveries to date.
