Call it a hat trick, a three-peat, or what you will. The launch of three megayachts from Sanlorenzo in one week is a notable achievement. All three happen to be for Russian owners, yet each is from a different series and comprised of different hull materials.
The largest of the megayachts is pictured above. Reve d’Or measures 46 meters (151 feet), representing the third launch in the Sanlorenzo 46 Steel series. Like her sisterships, she has a bulbous bow for good seakeeping and fuel economy. And as her model name suggests, she has a steel hull, with an aluminum superstructure. The semi-displacement hull form and twin Caterpillar 3512B DITAs should permit a 17-knot top end. They should also combine for a 4,000-nautical-mile range at 12 knots. When at anchor, the owner and guests will certainly enjoy Reve d’Or’s beach club, formed by the fold-down transom. The crew will appreciate the “under lower deck,” as Sanlorenzo calls the megayacht’s lowest level. Like the one on Lammouche, the first Sanlorenzo 46 Steel, it lets the crew head from the engine room on the deck above (a.k.a. the lower deck) forward to machinery spaces, the laundry, and additional cold stores.
Though smaller, the other two launches hit the water prior to Reve d’Or. Scorpion, a Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy, had the distinction of splashing first. She’s sixth in the series, an all-aluminum design by Francesco Paszkowski. Scorpion’s hallmarks, like those of other 40 Alloys, are gullwing doors to each side of the pilothouse and balconies off the master stateroom and saloon. Twin MTU 12V 4000 M93 diesels should allow a 28-knot max and 26-knot cruise.
Topping out at “just” 17 knots, with twin Caterpillar C32s, Santa Anna (above) is no less significant. She’s the fourth Sanlorenzo SD122 to do so. Another Paszkowski design, this time in fiberglass, Santa Anna features customized touches. The owner requested a larger saloon and a smaller but still enjoyable dining area. LOA is 38 meters (125 feet).
Sanlorenzo plans several more megayacht launches in the coming months. Stay tuned.
