The new Sanlorenzo Asymmetric SL102 is the world’s first asymmetric yacht and a bold attempt to break new ground with its futuristic design. Premiering at the Cannes Yachting Festival, it captured the imagination with pre-orders taking the production schedule into 2020.
The SL102 has only one side deck on the starboard side. The port side passageway area is incorporated into the master suite and saloon areas with the objective of increasing the interior room space and providing better access to the outdoor deck. The hull shape, windows, superyacht styling as well as the typical flybridge roof all reflect Sanlorenzo’s DNA and core values. It takes a while getting used to the unusual asymmetric concept, which is accentuated when looking out of the cockpit providing a clear view of the starboard passageway, the impressive flybridge stairs and the full-beam saloon.
The interior saloon is beautifully designed with elements on both sides. There is a double door opening towards starboard, and the bulwark can transform into a drop-down balcony creating a modern and luxurious villa on the sea. The open doors and balcony expand the vistas, welcoming in an abundance of natural light and cool sea breezes, and there are comfortable sofas on either side of the saloon. The bulwark on the starboard side can be lowered automatically affording clear views out of all the full-height windows. The guest cabins on the lower deck consist of four large double rooms, which take up the majority of the yacht’s 23 ft beam.
The performance is impressive, and there are two MTU 16V engine options. The 2,434 hp version produces a top speed of 29 knots, with a cruising speed of 26 knots. The SL102 is a significant milestone for Sanlorenzo, firmly establishing the brand in the superyacht sector. With a combination of innovative asymmetric design, high power performance and interior luxury, the SL102 is the superyacht of the future.
