The world’s first asymmetrical yacht, the
Sanlorenzo SL102 Asymmetric, recently arrived in Singapore after
the official launch for the owners in Viareggio, Italy.
The SL102 Asymmetric will be based in Singapore
and cruise extensively around Southeast Asia.
Introduced in 2018 at the Cannes Yachting
Festival as one of the main premiering stars of the show, the goal of the SL102 Asymmetric
was to provide guests with more usable living areas on the main
deck while simultaneously guaranteeing easy access for the crew
between the stern and the bow when docking and manoeuvring.
first glance, the Sanlorenzo SL102 Asymmetric bears the signature
Sanlorenzo exterior design, with an elegant, streamlined and
balanced profile, but when looking closer it becomes apparent that
the design is unique – each side is not the same as the other.
Designed in line with Sanlorenzo’s
‘made-to-measure’ philosophy, the interiors of the SL102
Asymmetric have been uniquely tailored to suit the owner’s style.
This particular SL102 exudes sophistication with a mixture of oak
and walnut woods coupled with a tranquil colour scheme both inside
“A new yacht arriving is always an exciting day
for all involved and especially so in the case of the first SL102
Asymmetric. It’s wonderful to see the yacht in Asia and cruising
the region,” said Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo Asia Sales Manager.
“Now in Singapore and having already been cruising we look forward
to following the many adventures on board.”
The success of the SL102 Asymmetric has been
followed by the announcement of the new Sanlorenzo SL96
The brainchild of Massimo Perotti, Chairman of
Sanlorenzo, using an asymmetric layout means that it was possible for Sanlorenzo
to rethink the conventional balance on board by offering volumes
previously destined for other uses. Retaining only the side decks
on the starboard side and eliminating the left one, which is
carried on the roof of the superstructure, allows 10sqm of surface
space to be recovered and used in the interior. This is an
approach that has never been tried before.
Following the arrival of the SL102 Asymmetric,
another new Sanlorenzo arrival is expected soon, with a Sanlorenzo SX88 due in Singapore waters within Autumn 2019.
