The Elite Days, an event hosted by Sanlorenzo, provided the backdrop for the presentation of Bernardo and Martina Zuccon’s first new designs for the SL 102 and SX 72.
The work of Martina and Bernardo Zuccon won’t be limited to the design of fiberglass yachts with planing hulls, but extend to all the Sanlorenzo’s product lines, including not only fiberglass but also aluminium and steel units, with lengths ranging from 40 to 60 metres.
The first two projects designed by Zuccon International Project, the SL 102 and the SX 72.
The design of the SL 102 is significant, not only because it is the first on which the studio has officially worked, but also because it represents the attempt to reinterpret and renew the shipyard’s most storied range: motor yachts with planing hulls.
Bernardo Zuccon commented: “I am very happy with the direction design work has taken so far, because I have always said that it is practically a moral duty to investigate new types of living spaces to offer the market, not so much in terms of style, but of the possibility in certain cases of altering the functional equilibrium, to allow the people who will experience the boat to find new potential scenarios”.
The new SL 102 is a design that will have an innovative asymmetrical layout, where the spaces and flows of life on board will be re-defined from a different perspective. There will be various different points of view, functional settings and opportunities to perceive the sea from new and dynamic perspectives, which change constantly as one moves around on board.
The SX 72, on the other hand, represents the opportunity to give continuity to a fascinating research path that the shipyard has embarked on.
In this project, the barriers “come down” and the boat opens up to welcome the sea in a simple and direct interpretation, where everything is in contact with the marine environment.
The SX is an entirely new, not only for the shipyard, but also for yacht building in a broader sense: the goal of work is to ensure that the must-haves demanded by today’s market are featured on yachts which didn’t originally have the right size characteristics to be able to offer them. It is a product for people who really do love the sea.
