Sanlorenzo chooses the showcase of the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 to present the new SD96 yacht, created in collaboration with Patricia Urquiola. The designer, at her first project in the world of yachting, has introduced new stylemes, in a vision that completely reinterprets the concept of on-board space. The key idea is flexibility of use.
In the design of the new entry-level yacht of the SD line, a 28-meter model with a legacy behind it, inspired by the lines of the Trans-Atlantic cruise ships of the 1930s, the sensitive, sophisticated approach of Patricia Urquiola is manifested in a modular concept previously foreign to the world of nautical design.
The living are on the main deck can expand its functions by including, when needed, a dining table for 10, otherwise hidden inside a bench in front of the sofa. The salon on the lower deck is totally transformable thanks to a series of sliding panels that can be closed to create a VIP cabin with bathroom. The sky lounge on the upper deck, with its modular furnishings and windows that open completely, can be used as a living area, a dining zone or a cinema.
The continuity of indoor and outdoor finishes, such as the wood floors in the Biscuit pattern by Listone Giordano, creates a single space with the fly bridge, which can also be utilized as a lounge or outdoor dining area, thanks to a coffee table that can be converted for meals.
The furnishings are by companies that embody excellence in international design, in this case with bespoke solutions, adapting their products to the needs of the design in terms of technical characteristics, materials and construction.
