The idea behind the Sanlorenzo 460EXP is to unite the technical elements and aesthetic of a working vessel with the space of a luxury yacht whilst keeping the displacement of under 500 tonnes and still retaining the Sanlorenzo family feel.
The 460 in the 42.78-metre’s name actually refers to its Gross Tonnage. It has the volumes of a 50-metre, but as a compact boat it is easier to manage and has lower running costs.
“First and foremost,” explains exterior designer Francesco Paszkowski, “the vertical lines with raised walkways and deckhouses are specific to working vessels as they have to be able to negotiate all sea conditions. From the pleasure side, we have aft deck spaces that can accommodate all kinds of toys and also double as a large chill-out area with a pool. Another pleasure boat-derived feature is the windows that brighten the interiors”.
“A style that dovetails perfectly with the spirit of the 460EXP” explains Sandro Chiavetta, chief designer at Sanlorenzo. Spread over four decks plus a sun deck, the Sanlorenzo 460EXP features two innovative elements:
“Amidships on the lower deck, which has a bar and beach club, there is a gym and a third VIP cabin which has been added to the two other guest two-berths. Because this cabin is located behind the crew quarters, it can also be used as an extra space for them on long passages in addition to the three crew cabins”. The main deck features two larger saloons and the full-beam owner’s suite forward.
The upper deck is home to the bridge, the captain’s cabin and a lounge with an al fresco terrace. “The colour palette for the spaces is inspired by maritime tradition and was developed by the Sanlorenzo style office”
At least 9 hulls have reportedly been produced to date in the 460EXP line, the model has recently been revised upwards with the larger 500EXP model with at least 2 hulls having been produced so far.
