design et al are delighted to announce further shortlist success for Sanlorenzo Spa in the International Yacht & Aviation Awards 2015. Sanlorenzo SL118 “H1” will compete for the Power Yacht Interior Design Award as well as the Power Yacht 25-40 metres Award.
The interior designer for the project was Francesco Paszkowski Design in collaboration with architect Margherita Casprini.
For the interior decòr, the best Made in Italy products were chosen, with brands like Edra, Minotti, Boffi and Artemide. A skilful lighting system hidden over the canvas roof can softly spread the light from the spots that remain invisible when not in use during the day. The stair case connecting the main deck to the flying bridge is in glass and the stairs have suspended steps. The hull uses the latest resin-infusion technology with a light, hybrid carbon/composite superstructure, so its performance and handling are efficient.
The yacht is a semi-wide body in the front part, but with the volumes exceptionally well integrated in the profile of the boat. Sanlorenzo adopted many sophisticated technical innovations, such as the lifting salon windows – an exclusively automotive concept so far – that allow a natural interior/exterior relation to better enjoy the seascape from a salon that becomes a terrace.
The helm station on the half deck, is a concentrate of ergonomic advanced solutions with the four individually standing control system screens, and the navigator corner as on a commercial aircraft. A wide use of double glazing as bulkheads on the lower deck separates the guest cabins leaving the light flowing through the space and allowing a total view of the full beam.
This yacht demonstrates the purest Sanlorenzo style, enhanced and strengthened with cutting edge features and designed according to her owner’s requests and needs.
