Sanlorenzo 40 Alloy Aluminum "Gullwing" Superyacht
The new $25 million 40 Alloy aluminum superyacht from Italy's Sanlorenzo is a real seagoing supercar. The sleek 131-foot craft has folding gullwing doors like the ones on a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, as well as four folding platforms creating exclusive lateral terraces on the main deck, living area and owner's cabin. It's Sanlorenzo's largest yacht to date as well as their first built in aluminum, which is lighter than fiberglass or steel, meaning even with its considerable size it can still hit 28 knots. A unique upper steering position does away with the conventional open flybridge to create a large sky lounge connecting it a large outdoor lounging area opening astern. The minimalist inside looks like Milan penthouse with walnut, lacquer and leather finishes and a striking steel, leather and glass main staircase. The owner's cabin, occupying the full beam of the yacht, has an en suite Turkish bath and hydro-massager.
