The Sanlorenzo shipyard

The Sanlorenzo shipyard is a boutique firm in the yachting world, building only a limited number of made-to-measure planing, semi-displacement, and full displacement yachts per year. A Sanlorenzo yacht has unmatched craftsmanship, the latest engineering, stunning naval architecture, incredible build quality, and luxurious on-deck amenities that offer unparalleled levels of luxury. 

High-end Italian design houses like Boffi, Artemide and Minotti were enlisted to design and furnish the interiors of Sanlorenzo boats, making them some of the most sought-after superyachts in the world. 

In fact, Italian luxury brands create prototypes solely for the Sanlorenzo Yacht line achieving a level of custom-made boats you won’t see anywhere else. This shipyard focuses on timeless values and develops designs and styles that become classics and ultimately outlive fashion and trends.

Who owns the Sanlorenzo shipyard?

The Sanlorenzo shipyard was founded in 1958 by Gianfranco Cecchi and Giuliano Pecchia, who opened the first shipyard near Florence, Italy. In 1972 the shipyard was taken over by Giovanni Jannetti, who launched the first fibreglass hull boat in 1985 and moved the headquarters to Ameglia in 1999.
Massimo Perotti, the current Executive Chairman, took the baton in 2005. Since the shipyard was established, the yachts were made-to-measure, and Sanlorenzo still only builds about 30 luxury yachts each year, ensuring the most exacting attention-to-detail and exquisite craftsmanship that have become the hallmarks of a Sanlorenzo boat.
Sanlorenzo has recently returned to being 100% Italian-owned. Chairman Massimo Perotti bought back 23% of the yard’s shares from the Chinese company Sundiro Holding.
The shares were originally sold in 2013 to safeguard the Italian company against the financial crisis while, at the same time, developing the Chinese market for luxury yachts under 20 metres.

The Sanlorenzo yacht building approach

Sanlorenzo has crafted tailor-made motor yachts for over 60 years. This shipyard respects the style and needs of its owners, and they place a huge emphasis on learning exactly what their customer’s needs are to ensure the perfect yacht.
This unique approach to the design process allows the Sanlorenzo shipyard to develop a yacht design based on a plan the customer approves of. The project identifies the number, size, and types of cabins as well as all onboard amenities, including the interior and exterior designs. During this process, special-purpose areas are assigned where the sole function is to satisfy the customer’s specific entertainment, relaxation or fun needs.

What does it mean to own a Sanlorenzo yacht?

Owning a Sanlorenzo yacht means joining an exclusive club of Owners who demand only the finest Italian made-to-measure boats crafted to the highest standards.
Buying a Sanlorenzo superyacht means getting to pick the building materials for your boat. This choice includes things like the marble slabs and the type of wood used in addition to the cladding and covering materials.
The Interior Design Section of Sanlorenzo tracks each yacht’s lifecycle. It assists clients in making decisions about all interior design elements, such as furniture and supplies, at each stage of the choosing process. This level of client involvement in the construction process is, therefore, unprecedented.

Sanlorenzo yacht ranges and models

SL yacht range

The Sanlorenzo SL family of motor yachts are sleek, graceful, and well-balanced all at once. Six models (SL78, SL86, SL90A, SL96A, SL106A, SL120A) with lengths ranging from 24 to 38 metres make up the SL luxury yacht line.

SD yacht range

The lines of the Trans-Atlantic liners from the 1930s serve as inspiration for the yachts in Sanlorenzo's SD semi-displacement fleet. The series includes variants with lengths ranging from 28 to 38 metres that have exceptional range to reach even the most remote locations

SX yacht range

It becomes instantly obvious that the SX line is a groundbreaking project when looking at the superstructure that extends forward and the beach area, which has the dimensions of a substantial terrace. A "crossover" yacht is created when the functions and purposes of many areas are combined, making it ideal for a sophisticated modern owner.

SP yacht range

The new SP line from Sanlorenzo Yachts exudes its founding principles of sustainability, comfort, and exclusivity. This is a new generation of vessels, a new model of usability, and Sanlorenzo to the core.

Where is Sanlorenzo Yachts headquartered?

The shipyard’s headquarters are located on the banks of the river Magra, in the province of La Spezia, in Liguria, Italy. Sanlorenzo also has a second division located in Viareggio, a beach town in Tuscany, which is historically where motor yachts are made in Italy.
Massa is home to a third division, while the La Spezia shipyard is where superyachts are made.
Sanlorenzo company headquarters are in Ameglia, La Spezia. This is also home to a fully compliant ISO14001 environmentally certified production facility for the fibreglass (GRP) constructed SL range of motor yachts 78 feet (24m) to 118 feet

How much is a Sanlorenzo yacht?

The cost of a Sanlorenzo yacht will depend on whether you are buying a new made-to-measure yacht or a used yacht.

Smaller pleasure yachts start at around US$2 million, with larger superyacht models selling for in excess of $50 million. The 64-metre M/Y ATILLA is the largest Sanlorenzo mega yacht.
