Superyacht - 146ft Aluminum Luxury - SANLORENZO
The 44Alloy’s beach club that opens on three sides (all closed here) is one of the highlights of this new model.
15 feet (4.57 m) to its well-received 40Alloy yacht, Italian shipyard San Lorenzo revealed its latest model, the all-aluminum 146-foot 44Alloy fast-displacement-hulled superyacht. With five yachts already sold, this new addition to the Alloy line appears to be a winner right out of the gate.
Designing a yacht that would provide the "highest quality of life on board," design studio Zuccon International Project delivered plans for the 44Alloy with all kinds of indoor/outdoor usable space and, most notably, a multi-level master apartment. This private owner’s suite comprises 1,560 square feet (ca. 145 m²) divided among the distinct spaces and includes both indoor and outdoor areas.
Martina was challenged by the yacht’s distinct dimensions and proportions, while also keeping in mind the brief of creating a continuous flow between the inside and the outside spaces of the yacht.
“With this in mind, we’ve created a very [unique] atmosphere,” she told Robb Report, “obtained by light and shade effects, and a wise use of matte and glossy surfaces—walnut, a very marine and elegant wood, which can in a certain sense represent the balance between classic taste and more modern trends, has been mixed with different finishes and reflective surfaces to amplify the perception of spatial expansion.”
The second hull’s interior will be by Florence-based architect Michele Bonan. French architect Christian Liaigre and his firm is queued up for the third yacht.
The 44Alloy will hit a top speed of either 20 or 22 knots, depending on the engine package. Two MTU M 12-V 2,000 M96L engines provide the 20-knot top speed, while a pair of MTU 16-V 2,000 M96L bring the top end to 22 knots.
