Sold new-build Sanlorenzo SL78 yacht Hull 686

The 14th hull in the entry-level Sanlorenzo SL78 series has been sold by regional dealer Sanlorenzo Spain.

This 24.64 metre yacht is being built from composites at the Italian yard’s Ameglia facility and will be delivered to her experienced European owner in July.
Hull 686, as she is currently known, will be based in Mallorca, Sanlorenzo Spain revealed.

The specification has been designed around luxurious Mediterranean cruising with room for up to eight guests and two crewmembers.The guest layout includes an amidships owner’s suite on the lower deck, a VIP cabin, a double and a twin. Key features include a hydraulic launching system that will allow Hull 686’s 3.95 metre jet tender to be splashed with ease. Vital statistics include a 5.74 metre beam and a maximum draught of 1.8 metres – ideal for shallow waters cruising.

Propulsion will come from a pair of 1,622hp MTU 10V2000M96L engines, which is the more powerful of the two set-ups that Sanlorenzo offers, giving an estimated top speed of 29 knots. What’s more, a total fuel capacity of 5,350 litres ensures that extended coastal cruises are on the cards.

First introduced at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival, the Sanlorenzo SL78 series has proven to be particularly popular.
The Italian yard will be hoping that its new entry-level model the SX72, which is due for a public debut at Cannes this year, will continue this trend.
