Sanlorenzo unveils new model, SD96, at Cannes Yachting Festival

Italian yard Sanlorenzo has released new details and the first images of its new entry level model in its SD line of yachts: the SD96.

Designed by Zuccon International Project, with interior design by Patricia Urquiola, the 28-metre (92-foot) model was unveiled at the Cannes Yachting Festival. It is to replace the SD92 model in the range, which was launched in 2007 and saw 27 units created for clientele.

The SD96 is the smallest yacht in the transatlantic SD range, which spans from 28 metres (92 feet) to 38 metres (125 feet) and includes the SD112 and the SD126.

Speaking about the exterior design, Bernardo Zuccon of Zuccon International Project said the liveability of the yacht and versatile spaces on board were key, commenting, “The SD96 is a yacht with a wealth of history and tradition that sets sail in a new sea, where stylistic features and functions have been redefined to help write a fascinating new page in the life of this shipyard.”

Patricia Urquiola has created a minimalist “warm and welcoming” interior, while the layout was designed by Philippe Briand. The key focus on the interior was creating a flexibility of spaces which flow together. She commented, “Our starting point for this collaboration with Sanlorenzo was doubtlessly the sea, a great source of inspiration for the whole development of the concept and therefore the interior of the yacht.

“The materials, shapes and colours evoke the marine world, creating a flowing and elegant space full of natural colours.”

Details include oak-panelled walls in the main deck and a central staircase bronzed in steel and wood and encased in a travertine shell.

The skylounge is an especially versatile space that can be used as a living room, dining area or cinema thanks to modular furniture.

Accommodation is for a total of 10 guests on the lower deck while crew accommodation allows for a staff of five.

Powered by a pair of MTU 10V 2000M86 engines, the SD96 has a top speed of 20 knots and a cruising speed of 15 knots.
