Sanlorenzo SX112: The sea on board

by Sanlorenzo 22 Sep 08:35 UTC

A pioneer by definition, visionary and resolute, once again Sanlorenzo aims for the horizon and beyond, shaping a new imaginary to give rise to unprecedented habitat solutions. The result is the new SX112, the flagship of the innovative SX crossover line, the first in the nautical world, launched in 2017 by Sanlorenzo as a special priority of Mr. Massimo Perotti, Executive Chairman of the company, who thanks to his courage and ability to break with conventions has been able to bring a new type of yacht to the market, with remarkable success.

A synthesys between the classic motoryacht with flying bridge, for which Sanlorenzo has been and continues to be one of the leading players on a worldwide level, and the explorer type, the SX range is an intelligent proposal in which style, flexibility and functionality blend in a shared language.

SX112 represents the consolidation of a direction that began with SX88 and led to SX76, a challenge that continues and is enhanced by new content, proposing a new way of living on the sea: on board, the barriers vanish, and the boat opens to the outside, establishing a close relationship with the marine context.

The focal point of the project is the new stern zone, which undoubtedly represents the most iconic area of the yacht, a choice that generates new suggestions and habitat perspectives based on an idea of the architect Luca Santella, creator of the concept of the innovative SX crossover line. A refinement and evolution of the design of SX88, the new model offers a spacious beach area of about 90 m2, expandable thanks to folding terraces, composed of an internal zone with fitness area directly connected to the outside by means of large sliding glass doors that permit the owners to utilize the spaces in an unprecedented way, maximizing the indoor-outdoor relationship.

The design of the new crossover model has been assigned to the creativity of Bernardo Zuccon, of Studio Zuccon International Project, for the external lines, and to Piero Lissoni, art director of the company since 2018, for the interiors of the first unit.

While on the one hand the studio Zuccon International Project has been able to consolidate an image, focusing on the idea of a "family feeling" for the range, on the other it has enhanced a number of linguistic choices, thanks to the larger dimension of the new yacht.

"On SX112 there is more 'oxygen' available with which to develop the stylistic message, in a logic of signs where harmony and balance of the volumes are the result of languages related to the principles of organic architecture. The forms are fluid, almost a reminder of the large marine mammals found in nature. This is a product for those who truly love the sea, which combines an innovative crossover type of living space with traditional layout balances, including the 'must have' features the market demands today, even on vessels of more compact size." Bernardo Zuccon

After designing the interiors of SX88, candidate for the Compasso d'Oro 2020, and SX76, Piero Lissoni returns to those of the SX line, concentrating on the subdivision of internal spaces in constant dialogue with the outdoor zones.

In tune with the concept developed for the other models, the main deck has been organized with an open plan that reinterprets the concept of internal space on a yacht, extending as a single, continuous context from stern to bow, with a living area adjacent to a bar zone and followed by one of the dining areas, in a seamless indoor-outdoor arrangement, also thanks to the large windows facing the sea.

An innovative solution capable of maximizing the relationship with the outdoor spaces, introduced by Sanlorenzo for the first time on SX88, thanks to the wheelhouse placed on the flying bridge to free up the the living area at the bow on the upper deck, making it possible to formulate a single, large space.

"The SX112 is another experimental model, like every new one we work on with Sanlorenzo. In this case we have relied on an ever more architectural approach: it is a floating building. We have connected the spaces exactly as in a building, through very technological openings that create an indoor-outdoor relationship. So we have truly designed a floating villa." Piero Lissoni

The bow area of the main deck, on the other hand, is fully equipped to offer livability, convivial enjoyment and relaxation, with a vast sundeck that can be converted in a very reserved, potentially shaded dining area.

On the lower deck SX112 offers accommodation in three large cabins, one for the owner and two VIP cabins, and a lounge area characterized by wooden boiserie and mirror walls, which can be transformed as an extra cabin with one kingsize or two twin beds. The lower deck also features a kitchen directly connected to the crew zone.

The staircases are once again a fundamental and characteristic feature of Lissoni's design. The helical internal staircase extends across three levels to connect the decks, and at the height of the main deck it is enclosed in a transparent oval volume, like a precious treasure chest, that enhances its image while making it appear to be suspended in the air. The external staircases, on the other hand, have a clean, essential design, and are built in keeping with the principles of racing yachts.

Details and materials are the leitmotif shared by all the interiors, selected with care to combine Japanese purity and Italian elegance. From the tatami mats used in the cabins to cover the floors, headboards and ceilings, to the wooden walls of the main deck and the nighttime area, matched with bronze-finish mirrors to amplify the sense of space. The bathrooms offer the precious grain of fine marble, while teak has been used for the outdoor zones.

A perfect example of Lissoni's style, which brings together refinement and simplicity in a space whose tone is set by soft, neutral colors, inundated on all sides by natural light that creates a warm, domestic atmosphere. This is reinforced by the decision - against the current trend - not to adapt the furnishings to the spaces, but instead to freely arrange them as in a home, combining design proposals, icons by the great masters and found objects in a context of maximum contamination.

The companies representing the excellence of international design include B&B Italia, Boffi, Cassina, Flos, FontanaArte, Glas Italia, Living Divani, Oluce, Technogym and Vitra.

With the new SX112 crossover yacht, Sanlorenzo again makes the concept of livability the central focus, through solutions that offer total freedom of use in all the spaces. A project that has been made possible by the unique combination of creativity, research, industrial perfection and fine craftsmanship that has made Sanlorenzo a case of outstanding excellence on a worldwide level.
