Simpson Marine Seals Second Sanlorenzo 44Alloy Sale to Asia
Sanlorenzo Asia has sold a second 44Alloy to Asia, one of five global sales secured months ahead of the model’s September world premiere.
Sanlorenzo Asia, a division of Simpson Marine, has announced the sale of a second 44Alloy superyacht to Asia, which is among five hulls already sold before the model’s world premiere, scheduled for September’s Cannes Yachting Festival. The first 44Alloy sold to Asia was signed in late 2018 and is expected to launch this autumn.
The 44.5m, 470GT superyacht is entirely built in aluminium to a design by Zuccon International Project studio, which handled the exterior and interior, having also worked with Sanlorenzo for the new SX and relaunched SD lines.
The fast displacement yacht has a top speed of 22 knots is characterised by clean, sporty lines, cut-outs in the main-deck bulwarks for sea views, a sky lounge on the upper deck and spacious beach club that opens on three sides and has a lateral garage for a 7m tender.
Furthermore, an exceptional 145sqm master suite spans three levels and includes a private outdoor lounge and pool.
The 44Alloy is an evolution of the prize-winning 40Alloy, the 40m aluminium model that featured fold-out terraces in the owner’s zone and gullwing doors on the bridge, selling 10 units.
Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo Asia Sales Manager, said: “We are extremely proud of this sale given the current climate and it goes to show the passion of our owners to power forward and enjoy life on the ocean in what are certainly challenging times.
“The client is an experienced yacht owner who sought a state-of-the-art design and a yacht that made the most of the spaces on board. The 44Alloy does this with its unique use of spaces both internally and externally.
“The owner’s suite, for example, has been brilliantly developed by Bernardo Zuccon, spanning three floors and enabling the space to be used in so many different ways. We are delighted that we will welcome not one but two 44Alloys to Asia in addition to several other Sanlorenzo superyachts already cruising in the region.”
Sanlorenzo is currently building 19 large yachts at its 50,000sqm Superyacht Division in La Spezia.
