Sanlorenzo SD96 & 64Steel winners of the World Yachts Trophies 2019
Sanlorenzo, one of the world’s leading producers of yachts and superyachts, stands out again this year at the World Yachts Trophies 2019, one of the most coveted honors in the nautical sector, as the final event of the Cannes Yachting Festival. During the prize ceremony held on Saturday 14 September, both new entries from Sanlorenzo – the SD96 yacht that makes its Italian debut at the Genoa Boat Show, and the 64Steel superyacht, which will be officially presented at the Monaco Yacht Show – took prizes awarded by the international jury.
SD96 was selected for the “Best Layout Trophy” in the category from 24 to 30 meters, thanks to Sanlorenzo’s ability to once again reinterpret interior spaces in an innovative way.
With external lines designed by Zuccon International Project, the new yacht stands out for its carefully honed proportions with a semi-enclosed flybridge that contains single steering gear, and for its perfect balance between design and volume. The interiors created by Patricia Urquiola, in her first project for the world of yachting, are based on the principle of transformability to make the boat capable of evolving and continuously adapting to the needs of its owners and guests, through novel solutions for the furnishings and layout.
64Steel, the new Sanlorenzo flagship, was assigned the “Best Interior Design Trophy.”
With gross tonnage of 1600 and 64 meters of length, 64Steel Attila is the result of close collaboration between the studio Officina Italiana Design and the styling division of Sanlorenzo.
The most important factor for the design and concept of this yacht is the desire to create continuity between the beach club and the stern portion of the main deck which also hosts the swimming pool, by means of an impressive staircase. With the transom and the lateral platforms open, the beach club has an area of 78 square meters. The internal decor has been designed by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini.
The unique openness to new ideas while keeping faith with the company’s heritage, the courage to take risks, going beyond established limits to imagine innovative solutions, have once again permitted Sanlorenzo – one of the world’s leading shipyards for the production of yachts and superyachts – to gain important honors for its absolutely novel creations.
