The concept for the SL72 layout envisioned by interior designer, Marty A. Lowe, was to create a Zen-like casual atmosphere to celebrate the serenity of life on the water. Particular attention was given to creating an open, barrier-free living area utilizing the available space to its greatest advantage.
The salon is a “put your feet up” area adjacent to an open upper level dining/lounge area. The galley is open and accessible to the entire main salon or can be closed off by raising a unique privacy window. The overall combined space was designed to graciously accommodate a large family or multiple guests in a casually elegant environment.
The décor of the SL72 captures the tranquil simplicity of the sea, including an artful mix of chic and rustic elements and endless neutral shades capturing the many hues of bright sandy beaches. Tactile and textured linen area rugs, supple saddle stitched leathers and soft supple linens are juxtaposed with unique contemporary elements which are offered only on this truly custom yacht.
Cabinet fronts that have been fabricated with a chic treatment of back painted glass layered with a fabric and suede-finished bleached teak are examples of the luxurious finishes illustrating the remarkable craftsmanship of the Sanlorenzo yacht. The light, natural color of the distinctive teak wood has been specially treated with a waterproof finish and the lacquered glass provides unusual depth and character.
Bulkheads and window wells are leather wrapped and/or lacquer finished without any of the standard vinyl coverings customarily seen on production yachts. The ultra comfortable salon sofa with goose down cushions has been upholstered with removable slipcovers from the highest quality stonewashed Belgian linen to enhance the natural casualness and propensity to wrinkle.
The furniture, which has been meticulously tailored in a calming neutral palette offers comfort, practicality and elegance. Dressing the berths in each stateroom in classic simplicity, the washed linen bedding is pure luxury. Loomed from the world’s finest 100% Belgian flax, the naturally soft linen is washed to enhance its feel and relaxed look and offers the ultimate in sleeping comfort.
Cabinet joinery and stonework throughout is deliberately simple and precise, yet classic in detail. The stonework features accents of linear carving which brings back the beauty of ancient time worn stones. The counters in the galley are from sandstone which is characterized by dark and dramatic shades of taupe.
Exterior spaces created to dine, sunbathe and converse are celebrated on the SL72. An enlarged flybridge, made possible by relocating the tender to the aft swim platform, creates an exterior space that is perfectly suited to entertaining and enjoying the fresh air.
Throughout the yacht, the soft, neutral palette and carefully chosen appointments are reminiscent of, and inspired by, the celebrated spirit of the sea.
