Sanlorenzo launches 460Exp, the first EXPLORER YACHT model
SANLORENZO LAUNCHES ITS FIRST EXPLORER YACHT
460 gross tons in just 42 meters length for long range cruising with complete self sufficiency
Just a few weeks after the new fiberglass models were completed – SL118 (37 meters) and SD112 (33.60 meters) – Sanlorenzo launches the first Explorer unit, named 460Exp, a kind of superyacht specifically designed for long-range cruising, fully equipped, offering all sorts of services/necessities, and the large internal spaces needed to allow the owner to sail the sea for prolonged periods.
460Exp (460 gross tons and 42 meters in length) has a displacement hull in steel and an aluminum superstructure characterized by Sanlorenzo’s unmistakable lines that makes the range of models always recognizable and inspired by big exploration vessels capable of reaching out of the ordinary and far flung destinations.
Spaciousness on board, safety, and self-sufficiency are the three factors that take the 460Exp beyond the usual limits associated with yachting, to bring the real meaning of adventure back to her owner: the exploration of far-off and beautiful destinations, with all the usual safety and comfort associated with a superyacht that combines the experience, craftsmanship and innovation of Sanlorenzo.
Great attention is paid to the environment and its conservation: the yacht is classified as “Green Plus” by RINA which allow her to remain anchored at bay for long periods of time without having to make use of generators, eliminating emissions, vibration and noise.
Her level of self-sufficiency and her cruising stability are higher than any other motoryacht of this size, but, with a limited draught, 460Exp is also able to sail along the coast with low fuel consumption. In addition, her’s length allows it to be both more agile and more maneuverable, in turn allowing quick access to confined harbours, ports and docks.
460Exp guarantees a pleasurable onboard experience, thanks to her ability to house a notable number of supplementary boats in the large stern area on the lower deck, such as tenders, speed boats and fishing boats up to 9 meters, along with a wide variety of toys, like sailing boats, jet skies, sea bobs, surfs, windsurfs, etc.
At anchor, the large teak deck at the stern, when free of toys, becomes a big recreational area, where one can sunbathe, enjoy the sea or swim against the current in the large aptly named ‘endless swimming pool.’
The stern area also offers a complete beach club, with bar, sauna and a diver space.
The 460Exp’s captivating external lines do not diminish her’s volumes but offer generous spaces on board: the lower deck hosts four large double-bed cabins and a wellness room with a second endless swimming pool, gym and sauna with Turkish bath. The room is illuminated by large vertical windows to either side that offer one a tantalizing view of the sea and nature outside while exercising.
The lower deck houses the crew cabins as well, but the captain’s cabin is placed on the main deck, next to the wheelhouse, so as to be ever at hand to supervise long-range cruising.
The interior décor chosen by the owner of the first 460Exp – made to measure like every
Sanlorenzo since 1958 – is perfectly in keeping with expedition boat philosophy: heavy use of
wood in the most classical shades like mahogany and teak, matched with sober, elegant and
timeless furniture and intense colored leathers that relax and put at ease the 460Exp’s guests.
Sanlorenzo 460Exp offers more volume than her actual size, and less consumption for an
extended sailing thanks to her two over-1300 HP engines, which can reach a maximum speed of
16 knots and permit the superyacht to cruise for more than 4000 miles (at 11 knots) without
refueling, thanks to her 50.000 liter fuel tanks.
460Exp-115 (hull 1) will be delivered to her owner in August 2015
