The new SL78, a 25m long fibreglass planning hull is Sanlorenzo’s latest entry-level to the SL fleet. She is unique in her category to be made-to-measure according to the Owner’s desires and requests. Her exterior, developed by Officina Italiana, adheres to Sanlorenzo’s philosophy of ‘timeless elegance’. The first SL78 in Asia has been sold by Simpson Marine and will call Hong Kong her home after delivery in May 2017.
The MCY 80 made also her public premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival. The sixth vessel in the Monte Carlo Yachts fleet, the MCY 80 won the Best Layout Award at the World Yacht Trophies in the 80 to 120ft yachts category.
Like the other yachts in the collection, an instant sense of spaciousness both inside and out becomes apparent upon boarding the MCY 80. The main saloon and the cabins are flooded with natural light and offer lushly appointed and detailed spaces for both social and private moments. Her signature elements include a class-leading entertainment foredeck and Portuguese bridge that no other yacht in this size category can match.
