How does a yacht without a hardtop ensure the owner and guests stay comfortable in the hot summer sun? With a motorized bimini that extends forward from the arch, of course – the solution used aboard the first Sanlorenzo SL108 with an open flying bridge, Keep Cool.
The “cool” marque extends to many items aboard this megayacht. From the casual, even beach-like lounging atmosphere of the saloon to the abundance of natural-tone teak wood on soles and furnishings throughout, Keep Cool is chic without being pretentious. Look above your head while standing in the saloon, and you’ll notice titanium panels, for further effect. And speaking of effect, whether day or night, the owner can request that the crew set various moods via LEDs beneath furnishings, in the superstructure, and even along the arch.
Whether music is emanating from the six-speaker system on the flying bridge or Keep Cool is cruising along at a reported 28 knots, thanks to twin MTU 12V4000 M90s, this is one yacht where guests shouldn’t have too hard a time of relaxing.
The crew’s job of attending to both them and the boat shouldn’t be too difficult, either. The entire port side of the main deck is a technical foyer, with access to the pilothouse above and engine room and other systems below. There’s also a small elevator off the foyer for loading various stores.
