She is a 81' length but the model is SL78. This motor yacht is the next generation of the builder's fiberglass planning range, and the SL78 runs well, reaching 29 knots with her twin 1,620 hp MTU 10V 2000 M96L diesels. This yacht not only looks fast, she is fast. She is very stable . She is equipped with CMC stabilizers. Loaded with Raymarine Diamond Edition electronics package, covering everything from GPS and radar to thermal imaging and chirp technology, which makes the SL78 a fairly intuitive vessel to drive, either by wheel or joystick. Sanlorenzo of the Americas did a comprehensive job of Americanizing this yacht. She comes with redundant pumps and U.S. systems, keeping the boat familiar and operational.
The Italian builder was clearly thinking big on the SL78. Her charcoal-gray flybridge is nearly two-thirds of the yacht's 80-foot-10-inch length overall. There are also nice design touches, including a glass-walled staircase, American style country kitchen, louvered sunroof, a big Garage with a 345 Williams inside (included) drop-down swim platform.
The Sanlorenzo SL78 is coming with superyacht influence, the flybridge with square footage similar to some 90- or even 100-footers, an open-plan salon filled with Italian designer décor and a full-beam master suite.
