Now that eight models have been launched, the eighth from La Spezia where Sanlorenzo’s “Superyacht” headquarters is located, and a ninth has already been sold, it is safe to say the 500Exp is among the most sought after 40 to 70-metre designs flying the colours of Massimo Perotti’s shipyard, Former President of the Italian Marine Industry Association.

Measuring 47 metres in length and featuring similar lines to those of an exploration ship, the 500Exp combines vast spaces (vast enough to include a touch-and-go helipad, something yachts under the 50-metre mark usually cannot afford) and Sanlorenzo’s unmistakable hallmark elegance, implementing cutting-edge construction technology, furnishing techniques and systems engineering.

With an aft deck broad enough to contain a 9-metre sailing boat and spacious, interiors that envelope owners and guests in a world of refined materials and exclusive furniture, the eighth 500Exp by Sanlorenzo provides 4,000 miles of autonomy, allowing the model to cross oceans.
