During its Elite Days 2018, a weekend of celebrations for its 60th anniversary held at the beginning of May, Sanlorenzo shipyard has launched the first unit of its 500Exp.
The new explorer superyacht hit the water among the world leaders in the production of yachts and superyachts, in the evocative context a Buddhist ceremony, in full respect for the traditions of the young Chinese shipowner.
As a real evolution of the previous model 460Exp, the 500exp is again a perfect example of the yard’s ability to create impressive custom yachts.
Developed in close contact with the owner, the new 500Exp makes it possible to have a longer stern area, thus meeting a specific request of the client to provide a landing area for helicopters, without losing the configuration of a superyacht Explorer, ensuring the most authentic sense of adventure on the open sea, thanks also to the many “toys” in the equipment.
In its 47 metres and 500 tons, the 500Exp revolutionizes the concept of expedition boat, proposing itself as a luxury superyacht for trips to exotic and distant destination: as a matter of fact, the superyacht is ready to take a long journey around the world, in the spirit of leisure and comfort, without giving up on that touch of design and elegance, of which Sanlorenzo has made its atout in the last years.
Working on the concept of space, combining experience and innovation with a unique design approach, Sanlorenzo thus demonstrates once again its ability to revolutionise the way of living on board.
Sanlorenzo Superyacht Division, which has allowed the company to record a strong growth in the sales volumes, is located in La Spezia in the new 50.000+ sq.m. production site, recently acquired and entirely dedicated to designing and building metal models above 40 metres.
