Shortlisted by a panel of judges selected for their expertise, 460Exp ranked first in its category, among other Explorer models by Abeking & Rasmussen, Cantieri delle Marche, Horizon Yachts and Kleven.

Sanlorenzo 460Exp, superyacht of 460 gross tons and 42m in length, is inspired by big exploration vessels capable of reaching out far destinations.

Since Moka’s debut in 2015, five units of this line have already been sold. One of them will be soon delivered to its Chinese owner – first 460Exp sold by the Sanlorenzo’s distributor in the Asian region, Simpson Marine.

Sanlorenzo is currently operational at three different production sites within 50km from each other: Ameglia, Viareggio and the new Sanlorenzo Superyacht facility in La Spezia dedicated to the construction of superyachts in metal from 40 up to over 80m. 

The new La Spezia shipyard is about to deliver the first 52Steel Seven Sins launched in January, while the production continues with four Explorer yachts (460Exp), the 11th 40m planing yacht (40Alloy), two further 52m (52Steel) and one 64m yacht (64Steel).
