Sanlorenzo's 38-metre semi-displacement SD126, which launched in July and made her European debut at the Cannes Yacht Show, is heading for the US and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.

The yacht, developed with Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski and boasting exterior and interior styling by Marty Lowe, includes a full ‘Americas Edition’ specs – with a US electrical system and appliances, larger generators, a large-capacity air-conditioning system, a high-output watermaker, and US Coast Guard-approved fire-safety systems.

The Sanlorenzo signatures – a folding terrace off the main salon and hull-side gull-wing doors off the master suite – really open up the interior. Forward, the bow area has been configured as a guest space with a hot-tub pool and lounging area. Shade is provided by a removable awning system. On the flybridge there is a second hot-tub, an array of Paola Lenti sofas and sunloungers, and a sleek Boffi island bar.

Inside, the main salon features a commissioned full-panel artwork and a marble main staircase wall, while the sky lounge includes details from reclaimed mooring posts from the Venetian waterways. The master suite on the main deck has a Dornbracht reclining spa/shower and an office/study. On the lower deck there are two VIPs, and two twins with pullmans.

She has a top speed at 17 knots and a range of 2,900 nautical miles at 11 knots cruising.
