Sanlorenzo Enters Expedition Yacht Market With 42 EXP

In a move to gain more marketshare among long-range cruisers, Sanlorenzo has introduced its first-ever expedition yacht, the 42 EXP.

At 138’5” (42.4 meters), the 42 EXP blends the looks you’d expect of such a superyacht with the style you’d expect of Sanlorenzo. Ruggedness mixes with softened edges, and space for plenty of toys lies alongside space for 12 in the owner’s party. Underscoring her far-flung cruising intentions, the 42 EXP should see a 4,000-nautical-mile range at 11 knots, with a 15-knot top speed.

The 42 EXP has been conceived entirely in house, and a scale model has already been tank tested. All that remains is an owner signing a contract for the all-aluminum megayacht. Interested parties should note that the Sanlorenzo says the 42 EXP’s displacement will be 400 tons at full load, beneath the ever-important 500-gross-tons threshold. Potential owners should also note that the megayacht will be built to receive RINA’s Green Plus notation. This environmental-oriented, purely voluntary standard involves studying 11 possible pollution types, including CO2 emissions. Each item corresponds to a score, assigned based on the type of problem selected to be tackled and the complexity of the solution. Specific to Sanlorenzo’s 42 EXP, the megayacht will be able to stay on anchor for 48 hours without the use of gensets. This means a reduction not only in a few types of emissions, but also sound and vibration.

Given a draft of 7’9” (2.4 meters) at full load, the megayacht should be able to pull into a number of anchorages and enjoy the stay. And given a 28’5” (8.7-meter) beam, interior and alfresco spaces should be comfortable. Sanlorenzo envisions the first 42 EXP with four guest staterooms below decks and the master on the main deck, in typical fashion. As the saloon rendering here shows, woods like mahogany and teak will mix with mostly neutral tones for classic appeal, and to keep from distracting from the environment. More of that environment can be enjoyed when the toys, just visible in the rendering, are offloaded from the aft deck. They’re stowed there because the transom will include a beach club with sauna, bar, and dive room. A gym will also be below decks.

As for the captain and crew, the captain will have a cabin adjacent to the wheelhouse, while four crew cabins will be below decks. Of course, they’ll have handy servicing access to guest staterooms or the engine room, the latter featuring either twin 1,319-hp Caterpillars or twin 1,360-hp MTUs.
