Sanlorenzo at the Venice Boat Show 2024

Sanlorenzo arrives in the lagoon to participate in the 5th edition of the Venice Boat Show, which will be held from May 29 to June 2, in the extraordinary setting of the historic Arsenal. The event, which has become one of the main international fairs in the sector, will host 250 exhibitors and 300 boats on a 55,000 sqm water basin. For the occasion, the Italian luxury yachting company will exhibit the famous piece “Building Bridges” by Lorenzo Quinn at the stand in the Municipal Area – Small Basin and Quinn’s Hands. This famous work of art consists of six pairs of hands united to form a row of bridges over the Arsenal’s dry docks, representing the innovation capacity of the Sanlorenzo and Bluegame brands, two icons of made in Italy that combine top quality, design, and craftsmanship with cutting-edge and sustainable engineering and technological solutions as their distinctive features.

To represent the shipyard in Venice, Sanlorenzo proposes the SD96, the first yacht designed by Spanish designer and architect Patricia Urquiola. Born from continuous research and attention to on-board comfort, the SD96 rethinks nautical design styles, introducing the concept of space transformability, which evolves and continuously adapts to the needs of its users, enriching the on-board experience. The vessel is part of Sanlorenzo’s semi-displacement SD line of yachts, inspired by the lines of the 1930s ocean liners, re-proposing that specific concept of elegance. These yachts offer excellent autonomy for reaching distant destinations, making them ideal for owners who wish to live at sea for extended periods, traveling in peace without time limitations. Therefore, the SD96 offers superior spaces and opportunities compared to boats of similar size but different types, leveraging the concept of flexibility and modularity that dictates the rhythm of the interior spaces.

Bluegame, on the other hand, will showcase the BG42 at the Venetian show, the shipyard’s first and historic model, a synthesis of design vision and the authenticity of life at sea through a functional and efficient boat, born from a revolutionary idea that changed the rules of the sea. The BG42 embodies the essence of Bluegame’s multi-purpose boat in just 42’: not a walk-around, not an open, not a day-cruiser, or a chase-boat, but all of these combined. It has a large cockpit, a walk-around protected by high edges for safe maneuvering in open waters and ample visibility during docking, thanks to the central command post and the reverse windshield. The layout utilizes the entire width to allow the master cabin to be positioned midship with a king-size bed and a bow dining area that can seat up to six people and can be converted into a double bed.

Thus, Sanlorenzo returns to the Venice Boat Show and renews its bond with the lagoon city. A special and increasingly strong bond, as demonstrated by the preview presentation at the 2024 Biennale of the collaboration with artist Michelangelo Pistoletto and his Foundation for the new artistic project titled “Third Paradise Quick Response”, which marked the prelude to the launch of Sanlorenzo Arts Venice: a hybrid space dedicated to culture and the arts, destined to emerge as a reference point in the cultural landscape of the city.

Sanlorenzo Arts Venice, whose inauguration is scheduled for 2025, stems from Sanlorenzo’s desire to create a place that highlights the deep connection between the company and the art world, offering a space where creativity merges with innovation in the world of yachts and where art, nature, and technology come together to create unique vessels ready to chart new courses in the future of humanity.
