For over 60 years, the shipyards of Sanlorenzo have produced motor yachts of the highest quality, based on an encounter between fine craftsmanship, design and advanced technologies, made to measure to meet the requirements of individual clients.
Founded in 1958, Sanlorenzo is now one of the world’s leading shipyards for yachts and superyachts, with four production sites in La Spezia, Ameglia, Viareggio and Massa, where the tailor-made creations of the company, with lengths ranging from 24 to 70 meters, come to life.
A true example of nautical excellence, Sanlorenzo stands out in its field thanks to a unique, innovative approach. Under the leadership of Massimo Perotti, who acquired Sanlorenzo in 2005, the company has set off along new and unexpected pathways, becoming the first of its kind in the world to bring together different realities that speak related languages, such as design.
In recent decades the company has called on outstanding names for the interior design of its yachts, including Dordoni Architetti, Antonio Citterio & Patricia Viel, Piero Lissoni (art director of the firm since 2016), Patricia Urquiola, Christian Liaigre and John Pawson, who have all introduced exciting innovations.
The desire to get away from established habits and to open the imagination has also led Sanlorenzo to create ties to the world of art. Over the years the company has activated collaborations with important art galleries and cultural institutions like Tornabuoni Arte, with which for Art Basel Miami Beach in 2016 and the 57th Venice Art Biennale it has organized exhibitions on its yachts, and the Milan Triennale. Since 2018, Sanlorenzo is also a global partner of Art Basel, the most outstanding fair of modern and contemporary art on the international scene, for the annual appointments in Hong Kong, Basel and Miami Beach.
Along this coherent but also versatile path, in 2020 Sanlorenzo becomes an Institutional Patron of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.
