Sanlorenzo’s new SD96
SD96: the first yacht designed by Patricia Urquiola
SD96 is the entry level model of Sanlorenzo’s historic semi-displacement SD yacht line, a 28-meter-long model that will replace the SD92, another of the shipyard’s success stories, which was launched in 2007 with 27units sold, showing and maintaining its natural evolution. that stylish hallmark that has always distinguished the yard.
Here too there is a historical legacy to respect, an image that has grown and been consolidated over time, which has been the main motivator in defining the design of the external lines of this lineup of boats, signed by the Zuccon International Project, in which tradition and history are indispensable aspects.
Continuing along the same path that for years has linked it closely to the world of design, the company has entrusted Patricia Urquiola with the interior design of the new SD96 yacht.
Best in its field, Sanlorenzo has in fact involved such noteworthy names as Dordoni Architetti, Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Piero Lissoni (Art Director of the company since 2018), in the interior design of yachts, thanks to which it has added new visions allowing it to rethink the concept of space on board, an established asset of Sanlorenzo, through innovations and new stylistic features.
“I chose Patricia because I wanted to add a more feminine touch to the interiors in Sanlorenzo yachts, something which until now had been foreign to the nautical world. And today she is the most sought-after woman in global design thanks to her ability to combine beauty and comfort. All done with a touch of irony and almost poetic sensitivity, with love for all that is glocal and a great respect for the hard work of the artisans.” Massimo Perotti, Chairman Sanlorenzo
In bringing her vision on board, the architect and designer laid out the interior of the SD96 with transformability taking centre stage-making for a boat capable of evolving and continuously adapting to the needs of those who live on it. A flowing space in which the distinctive style of the Spanish architect and designer blossoms and blooms, combining a minimalist approach with a mix of carefully selected materials that summon forth thoughts of the sea.
