Replacing the innovative Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy model, the Sanlorenzo 44 Alloy is a luxury 44m (144ft) long and 9m wide fast displacement superyacht able to reach top speeds of 23 knots and built in aluminum at the Sanlorenzo Superyacht division in La Spezia. Hull no 1 is currently under construction and scheduled for delivery in 2019 with a total of three units sold to date, way before the official presentation to the market.
The yacht’s exterior and interior designs have been entrusted to Zuccon International Project, a Sanlorenzo partner with the new SX crossover line and more upcoming projects. The yacht is characterised by clean, sporty lines with distinctive cutouts in the bulwarks to provide unlimited sea views from the main deck and a sky lounge on the upper deck. The aft side of the hull will open to a lateral tender garage featuring a 7m tender.
An interesting feature is a mezzanine loft set-up in the master cabin which is the first time in which a double-level owner’s cabin has been introduced in a yacht of this size, according to Antonio Santella, Vice-president of Sales and Marketing at Sanlorenzo’s Superyacht Division. The master suite will also comprise its own private outdoor front deck area.
As usual with Sanlorenzo’s bespoke and tailor made customer approach, the yacht offers an extensive number of possible layouts and configurations and the shipyard is ready to materialise any possible owners’ requests.
“The Sanlorenzo Superyacht division has exponentially grown in the past two years with 10 superyachts sold, four of them delivered in 2018 alone, and the shipyard working at full speed with the flagship 64Steel to be launched next year! 2019 will see even more launches including the first 44Alloy and we are all very excited to see her live, before the Asian hull launches in 2020,” explains Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo Asia Sales Manager.
“The buyers in Asia are certainly impressed with Sanlorenzo’s ability to fully customise their yachts. The other key element is the constant focus on innovation and the integration of some features usually found on much larger yachts such us the floodable aft tender garage converting into beach deck on the 52Steel, the mezzanine master suite on the 44Alloy or the innovations including gull-wing doors and foldable balconies first ever introduced on the 40Alloy”, continues Stratton.
