In the latest years, the Italian shipyard has constantly progressed in building larger-sized yachts, with two 64-metre superyachts under construction in the La Spezia facility. Large investment in infrastructures has contributed to this upgrade.
Since 2005, when Perotti acquired the shipyard, Sanlorenzo has experienced an impressive worldwide growth, while always maintaining a strong focus on the total customisation of its products. Under 10 years of Perotti’s management, Sanlorenzo’s turnover has grown from 57 Million Euro in 2005 to 250 Million Euro in 2015. The turnover forecast for 2017 is 257 Million Euro.
Sanlorenzo is currently the world’s second biggest yacht builder of yachts over 24m, according to Global Order Book, published each year in the USA.
The company produces customised GRP yachts in planing and semi-displacement ranges, and aluminium and steel superyachts up to 64 metres.
