Sanlorenzo calls its SX sequence ‘crossover’ yachts as a result of they mix one of the best options of explorers with the consolation of flybridge yachts. However a go to to the vary’s new flagship, the SX112, exhibits that these yachts bridge extra than simply vessel varieties.

Just like the SX88 and the SX76 earlier than her, the 33m SX112 presents a ‘no obstacles’ expertise of life at sea. Bernardo Zuccon of Zuccon Worldwide Challenge has designed the exteriors of the complete SX line and has used no-nonsense, workboat-like options similar to vertical bows, forward-slanted glass and lengthy, open aft sections all through the vary. The look is robust, distinctive and trendy with out being radical.

Whereas the exteriors of the SX vary have a household resemblance that remembers seafaring traditions, the interiors had been designed by Piero Lissoni, a person who has been decided to shake up the nautical world’s preconceptions ever since he grew to become Sanlorenzo’s Artwork Director in 2018.

Lissoni begins his tour of the yacht with an announcement: “I don’t see why a yacht ought to be a compendium of all issues related to wealth — marbles, hides, unique woods — as a result of luxurious and vulgarity usually go hand in hand,” he says.

“I’ve requested yacht designers and I requested myself: Why do individuals who have stunning properties have such vulgar yachts? I believe that the supply of this vulgarity as a rule comes from the shipyard architects who appear to suppose that rich homeowners need splashy supplies. I don’t agree with that.”

SPACE IS SANCTUARY

After Lissoni’s phrases, it’s no shock to board the yacht and discover a area the place nothing glitters however

all the things shines in its personal approach. Within the saloon, built-in items mix discreetly into the yacht’s construction whereas tatami and pure wooden tones supply a delicate backdrop to design icons similar to electric-blue Utrecht armchairs by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld and produced by Cassina.

There are additionally B&B Italia couches, a Poul Kjaerholm PK-80 daybed and Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni’s traditional Toio lamps produced by Flos.

“After I design a yacht, I method it simply as I’d every other venture, aiming to create one thing practical, comfy and delightful,” Lissoni continues. “It was once {that a} yacht and all the things aboard it needed to be made by a yacht designer.

“Outsiders like me have modified the foundations by displaying {that a} yacht is usually a floating villa furnished with among the most stunning design items in the marketplace immediately. We’re trendy individuals dwelling at the moment. Why not design an inside that displays that?”

However Lissoni’s daring new method to yacht interiors goes far past furnishings. Coming into the yacht, you look straight by means of an open and ethereal area accented by a glass-enclosed swirl of a metal staircase that runs to all decks and disguises an engineering feat behind deceptively easy strains.

There’s a dwelling space aft and a eating space fore. There isn’t any foyer and the bridge space is notably absent. The truth is, Lissoni requisitioned the realm with one of the best views from the captain and put it on the disposal of the homeowners and their visitors.

The SX112 solely has one helm and it’s on the fly deck. Whereas this association breaks with custom, it makes for a important saloon that’s flooded with gentle and immersed in nature.

Continuing down the spiralling staircase to the decrease deck results in an alcove the place tatami is used extensively, introducing an East/West combination that represents one other crossover on the SX112.

With its impartial color, fascinating texture and inherent soundproofing qualities, tatami is used extensively within the visitor cabins that, on this hull, embody an proprietor’s cabin aft and two VIPs.

Walnut and Verde Alpi marble are different recurring supplies whereas the chromed porthole frames are left seen, so the industrial-grade fantastic thing about the yacht’s construct expertise exhibits by means of.

OUTDOOR PLAYGROUND

Whereas it mixes options of flybridge yachts with explorers and blends Jap vibes with Western icons, the SX112 actually crosses over when it blurs the boundaries between indoor and out of doors dwelling. A world opens up once you flip a deal with hid within the panelling of the proprietor’s cabin and discover that it leads on to the gymnasium, seashore lounge and a spectacular aft deck.

A lot, rather more than a swim platform, this 90sqm expanse of free, open area is a non-public ‘seashore’ whose dimension and airiness improve exponentially when the yacht’s facet terraces are opened over the water.

Entry to the water is simple, the sense of freedom and area is limitless, and the proprietor actually has all of this at his or her fingertips at any time of the day or evening. In step with his minimalist method, Lissoni has furnished the SX112’s out of doors areas with easy, linear items which are commercially out there.

“In my view, all the things that’s used aboard a yacht ought to be industrial as a result of industrial designers are higher attuned than nautical designers to how we stay immediately,” he says. “On high of that, commercially out there merchandise are produced from licensed supplies that solely industries have entry to. They will assure high quality and sturdiness.”

Lissoni paid as a lot consideration to move by means of the yacht as he did to its furnishings. The strict deck and the principle deck aft join each bodily and philosophically. The steps are straight and straightforward to stroll up and the area, with unfastened furnishings going through aft, is deliberate as a continuation of the strict, not as an introduction to the saloon.

From there, it’s one other fast hop as much as the fly deck with its wonderful views. Right here, the area below the hardtop will be fully enclosed to turn out to be a sort of cabana with a eating space, bar and the helm station.

LOOKING AHEAD

A lot as Lissoni believes {that a} yacht ought to really feel like a villa, everyone knows that they’re difficult items of equipment. However with areas similar to a eating room the place the bridge often is and a gymnasium and seashore membership the place the engine room is usually positioned, it’s onerous to think about the place the SX112’s 4 Volvo IPS engines are tucked away.

Because it seems, the engine room is accessed from a hatch on the strict deck and from a small door on the starboard facet of the seashore membership. However even when the yacht’s quick displacement hull is launched at high velocity, the pod’s clean and quiet trip implies that you’d barely know they had been there.

The SX112 fills the invoice for anybody who desires a yacht for dwelling freely, in straightforward contact with the water and in nice fashion. And Lissoni is trying ahead to persevering with in his work with Sanlorenzo.

“I’m attracted by the issue of nautical tasks, by the problem of designing one thing that strikes, that exists in nature and that’s impacted by it. On the similar time, I need to keep an architect before everything,” Lissoni says.

“I like being the outsider within the nautical world and I’d actually wish to persuade my insider colleagues to have the heart to alter. Sit up for the longer term, not again on custom.” The SX112 is that forward-looking yacht that crosses over boundaries to create a brand new fashion of life at sea.

Simpson Marine, below Sanlorenzo Asia, has bought the primary unit into the area, which is arriving in Hong Kong by the tip of the yr.
