Sanlorenzo delivers third Alloy
Asian-inspired interiors by French studio Liaigre and a champagne hull distinguish Sanlorenzo’s third 44.5m Alloy superyacht, while the Italian builder also announces the sale of the sixth unit.
Sanlorenzo has delivered its third Alloy, a 44.5m, 480GRT fast-displacement aluminium model featuring an exterior by Italy’s Studio Zuccon International. The new hull known as Alloy 137 features special, Asian-inspired interiors by Liaigre, marking the French studio’s first collaboration with the Italian builder.
The owner requested interiors “inspired by an Asian style but with a French touch”, with Liaigre merge the two by incorporating elements and details reminiscent of Asian culture blended with the historical French culture of interior design. Woods used include light-coloured natural elm, which belongs to the French tradition, and polished eucalyptus, widely used in Asia.
The Alloy design features a three-level owner’s apartment spanning 147sqm (1,582sqft) across both indoor and outdoor areas, which the yard describes as “a solution never seen before on a superyacht of this size”.
The owner’s area on the main deck consists of a 70sqm sleeping area with a bedroom, walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and lobby, while a 66sqm area on the upper deck is divided between an indoor studio area and a large open area aft with sundeck, swimming pool and relaxation areas.
Liaigre’s interior design included positioning the vanity unit directly on the opening terrace, not inside the bathroom, a solution never seen before.
Guillaume Rolland, Liaigre’s Principal and Head of Yacht Design, said: “We approached this interior project in terms of challenge. Starting from a given structure, we thoroughly studied every single environment to maximise its functionality by creating and obtaining new living spaces for the owner. “
The social areas include the main living area on the main deck, the relaxation/cinema area on the upper deck and four double guest cabins on the lower deck.
The focal point of the main-deck saloon is a photograph by the Japanese photographer Shibata, selected for its for its intense shade of red and triangular composition.
Examples of Asian-inspired architecture are doorways that narrow slightly at the bottom and the choice to integrate two terrariums in glass capsules containing bonsai trees into the walls of the main-deck saloon.
Outdoor areas include the sun deck, an 83sqm outdoor area offering multiple possibilities for open-air lunches, sunbathing, relaxation and socialising, as well as the large 102sqm beach club including a bar/gym area and a folding stern platform and two side platforms.
Bernardo Zuccon of Zuccon International Project said: “Among all the Alloy projects, in 137 there was a particular development thanks to the collaboration with Liaigre, which took care of the interiors and gave great added value in terms of interpretation, consolidating and strengthening the fascinating architectural design of the range and giving it even more recognition and identity.
“Another important aspect concerns the colour theme. The champagne colour has created a different mood for the boat, which, in the sportiness and tension of its lines, acquires a more classic and elegant approach.
“The Alloy is an example of how the exploration of the territories of living, in boats as well as in architecture in the broadest sense, can still grow, nourish itself and translate into new languages and new opportunities for life. After all, this is the primary role of architecture itself: to be, first and foremost, an instrument to allow man to live better.”
The yacht has accommodation for 10 guests and nine crew, and a top speed of 21 knots with twin MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines.
The shipyard has also confirmed the sale of the sixth Alloy. Two of the first five sales were by Sanlorenzo Asia, represented by regional dealer Simpson Marine.
A big step up from the SX88 and SX76, the new Sanlorenzo SX112 is the flagship of the Italian builder’s iconic crossover series, with the first hull in Asia scheduled to arrive in Hong Kong later this year.
