The Sanlorenzo shipyard has been building high-quality motor yachts since 1958. It is a boutique firm in the yachting industry, building only a limited number of made-to-measure units per year. Each yacht is designed and produced according to the specific requests, style, and desires of the individual owner.
The shipyard’s headquarters are located on the banks of the river Magra, inside the Montemarcello-Magra natural reserve, in Ameglia, in the province of La Spezia, in Liguria, Italy. A second division is based in the Tuscan seaside town of Viareggio, the historic centre of motor yacht manufacturing in Italy, a third division is based in Massa, while the production of superyachts is located in the La Spezia shipyard.
The sea has no roads.
The sea is without explanation.
Building a Sanlorenzo takes time and passion; that’s why the shipyard can satisfy only 50 customers a year. In more than half century the shipyard has built about 1000 yachts, each one different from the other. Since 2005, the shipyard has grown substantially, improving its skill in the customization of each individual yacht.
Over a period of approximately eight years, the shipyard has climbed the prestigious Global Order Book ranking, which is annually listed by Boat International. Today, Sanlorenzo ranks at the first positions among the top 20 builders of yachts over 24 metres.
The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears, or the salt sea.
Sanlorenzo develops designs and styles that become classics, and that outlive fashion and trends.
Mission: be the shipyard of choice for uncompromising yachtsmen. A place to explore innovation by experience, where you come to craft your own yacht and have it built to stand the tests of time and of sea.
