The Sanlorenzo shipyard has been building high-quality motor yachts since 1958. It is a boutique firm in the yachting industry, building only a limited number of made-to-measure units per year. Each yacht is designed and produced according to the specific requests, style, and desires of the individual owner.

The shipyard’s headquarters are located on the banks of the river Magra, inside the Montemarcello-Magra natural reserve, in Ameglia, in the province of La Spezia, in Liguria, Italy. A second division is based in the Tuscan seaside town of Viareggio, the historic centre of motor yacht manufacturing in Italy, while the production of superyachts is located in the La Spezia shipyard.


The entry-level model for Sanlorenzo’s planning fleet. It is the only yacht in its category to be made to measure in line with its owner’s requests. Many new features are included like a lower gunwale outside the salon to allow more light to enter through the large windows. Owners and guests are given a real feeling of enjoying a home away from home. 25 meters of versatility: The space have been redesigned to combine technological research and seagoing excellence, constant innovation, and finest traditions of Italian savoir-faire.


Being an entry-level model at 78 feet length overall can only be a good thing for a new yacht. That size means the baby in the family gets many of her larger sisterships’ features. With the Sanlorenzo SL78, the superyacht influence includes a flybridge with square footage similar to some 90- or even 100-footers, an open-plan salon filled with Italian designer décor and a full-beam master suite.

The Italian builder was clearly thinking big on the SL78. Her charcoal-gray flybridge is nearly two-thirds of the yacht’s 80-foot-10-inch length overall. And the SL78 Sag Harbor edition has a hydraulic-electric radar arch that folds toward the deck to reduce its height by a good 5 feet. There are also nice design touches, including a glass-walled staircase, louvered sunroof, drop-down swim platform and country kitchen.

This motor yacht is the next generation of the builder’s fiberglass planing range, and the SL78 runs well, reaching 29 knots with her twin 1,620 hp MTU 10V 2000 M96L diesels. This yacht looks fast, which makes sense, because she is fast. Plus, she is stable underway and at rest in a chop, thanks to CMC stabilizers. The builder put together what it calls the Raymarine Diamond Edition electronics package, covering everything from GPS and radar to thermal imaging and chirp technology, which makes the SL78 a fairly intuitive vessel to drive, ­either by wheel or joystick. Sanlorenzo of the Americas did a comprehensive job of Americanizing its Sag Harbor edition with redundant pumps and U.S. systems, keeping the boat familiar and operational.
