A New Frontier For Sanlorenzo

The Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo have decided to tap into the expedition yacht market with this beautifully designed 42m (138ft) expedition yacht. Most Superyachts adventures mean hopping from port to port around the Mediterraneans most glamorous and prestigious areas or moving from one cove to another in the Caribbean, but the Sanlorenzo 42m will bring the comfort and service that's found in Monte Carlo to the extreme ends of the Earth. From Greenland to Alaska and further a field to Patagonia and French Polynesia.

"Explorer: more space, more endurance, less consumption, 
more toys, more extreme and more enjoyment on board."

The 42EXP will allow owners to explorer the un-spoilt and most remote corners of the Earth for months at a time in comfort, with a more fuel efficient yacht. She is perfect for those who wish to downsize but keep a remarkable amount of volume. Great attention is paid to the environment, as she is green plus certified and can remain in a secluded bay for 48hrs without turning on a generator, getting rid of vibrations and noise for a more relaxing stay.

Her accommodation will consist of four guest cabins on the lower deck and one full beam owners suite on the main deck. The crew accommodation will also be on the lower deck with exception of the captain who gets a private cabin on the upper deck. Her main features consist of a beach club, dive station, sauna and a fitness area which includes a fully equipped gym and a counter current pool.

She has been already tank tested and the project is fully developed to start he construction. The chosen materials are steel for the hull with aluminium superstructure, for a strong, long range and all condition expedition yacht.


  1. Interesting development by Sanlorenzo, a move, which surely aims to increase its market share in long-range cruisers. Sanlorenzo were third in the Global Order Book – a list of superyachts that were on order as of 1st Sept at shipyards worldwide.

  2. A move in the right direction
