This San Lorenzo 72, built in 2001 and launched in 2002 prides itself in its ability to customize any of its series yachts. Not often do you find such commitment to individuality on a 72-footer.
On the outside, the SL72, built in composite at Sanlorenzo’s Ameglia shipyard, features long lines and more angular shapes than many recent designs. It has a certain impervious elegance that eschews trendy for proven chic, something that the Sanlorenzo brand tends to do across its production, whether building in composite, aluminum or steel (as is the case with its new 150-footer).
The SL72 features a very classic layout with the aft deck dedicated to a table/banquette combination, stairs to the sun deck simply organized between the salon area aft (which can be set according to the client’s needs and desires) and the navigation area forward with practical helm on the starboard side and a very desirable spot for sunbathing on the port side. A built-in recliner faces toward the bow and allows taking in sun and wind while keeping the operator company.
On the inside, big windows contribute to giving the contemporary interior a loft feel. Lowe, who also did the interior layout, has given this boat the look of an elegant beach house. Low-profile furnishings let the water views take over. The salon is the kind that invites you to put your feet up, but to do it in style.
This flybridge is very pleasant at lower rpm for a quiet cruise on the Intracoastal, but also does quite well in the upper range, maxing out at about 28 knots when equipped with two 1,300-hp Man engines. We tested the boat in exceptionally calm seas, and it was a great ride. But comfort is key to keep people boating.
Another change will be the full four-stateroom layout. This one has a small cabin with bunks, enclosed with a pocket door, in addition to the full-beam master, forward VIP and twin cabin.
But Sanlorenzo can do many things to satisfy individual requirements. “Please remember, there are no two Sanlorenzos alike,” says George Jousma, president and CEO of Sanlorenzo of the Americas. “We don’t build a standard yacht; we offer a standard build of materials for the owner to design the yacht of their unique preferences.”
