First sale of Sanlorenzo SL96 Asymmetric into Asia
Sanlorenzo Asia has sold an SL96A to Hong Kong following the sale of the pioneering SL102 Asymmetric earlier in the year.
The Sanlorenzo SL96A is the second Asymmetric model by the Italian shipyard
Sanlorenzo Asia, represented by Simpson Marine, has secured the sale of the first SL96 Asymmetric into Asia, following the debut of the model at Boot Dusseldorf in January. The hull is scheduled for delivery to Hong Kong in the summer of 2021, along with an SL102 Asymmetric sold earlier this year.
Part of the brand’s planing series, the SL102 Asymmetric debuted at the 2018 Cannes Yachting Festival and was the pioneer of Sanlorenzo’s asymmetric design, which only features a side deck on starboard side, adding 10sqm to the main-deck interior.

Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo Asia Sales Manager, said: “We feel very proud to see that the Asymmetric concept has been so well received in Asia, with more projects to be finalised in the near future. This newly sold SL96A will be a beautiful addition to the fast expanding Sanlorenzo fleet in Hong Kong.
“This has proved to be a fantastic year for Sanlorenzo in Asia, with eight Sanlorenzo yachts commissioned within the first eight months of 2020, and many more to come. It is rewarding to see Sanlorenzo’s owner-focused approach and their fully made-to-measure yachts are now well known here in Asia, and have rightly gained the attention of the most demanding and discerning clients.”

A 44Alloy (146ft) and an SD96 from Sanlorenzo’s semi-displacement range are expected to arrive into Asia early next year.
