If you hear someone exclaim “Oh!” upon seeing a Sanlorenzo, he or she might actually be referring to the motoryacht O. O is the first Sanlorenzo SD112 megayacht.
The Sanlorenzo SD112 is among a few SD (semidisplacement) models, which include the smaller SD92 and larger SD122. Like them, the motoryacht O is all-fiberglass. Overall, 30 SD megayachts have been launched, and O is the first of six Sanlorenzo SD112 orders to date.
The owner of the motoryacht O, from Central America, was accompanied by family and friends for the christening and launch in Italy. He requested his Sanlorenzo SD112 have four staterooms for guests, all on the lower deck as expected. Seven crewmembers will attend to everyone’s needs.
The guest areas, including the main-deck owner’s suite, feature leathers, fabrics, and more from Italian brands. Two particularly notable decor features aboard O are on the main aft deck and in the saloon. The alfresco overhang is adorned with Tanganyika wood, walnut, and teak. In the saloon, the double doors of a full-height cabinet were made to look like art. They’re covered with resin and metal, done by an Italian artist.
The Sanlorenzo SD112 was meant to bring the outdoors inside, too. To that end, O has fold-down balconies off the saloon. The megayacht further allows the aft-deck door to remain fully open. The trideck yacht also has large windows along the main and upper decks.
Of course, Sanlorenzo hasn’t forfeited alfresco space. The sundeck aboard O has the usual hot tub surrounded by sunpads. Dining can take place up here, too.
Sea trials for this first Sanlorenzo SD112 will take place in the coming weeks. The builder anticipates a top end of 17 knots and best cruise of 11 knots. Power comes from twin MTUs. At 11 knots, the yacht should see a 2,750-nautical-mile range as well.
