The smallest model of its Italian builder opens their semi-displacement brims with innovation that is sure to echo in many future trends
Debuting at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the new Sanlorenzo SD90 is the smallest unit in Sanlorenzo’s semi-displacement SD series. Designed in the same vein as her larger predecessors, models SD96 and SD118, the newest model boasts gentle, fluent exterior lines and doesn’t go overboard with top speed, focusing instead on higher fuel efficiency, made possible by carefully studied hull lines.
Sanlorenzo SD90 layout
While most builders usually design smaller models by just cramming all the features found on their larger models into a vessel with fewer cabins and less space, Sanlorenzo have decided to cram the new SD90 with more innovation that is sure to echo in future industry trends – like sustainable materials.
Exterior lines of Sanlorenzo SD90 are unbelievably harmonious. The hull is tall and gray, the bow blunt, the superstructure white and lined with tinted hull windows, and the bridge nested between the main deck and the fly bridge. The aft of the fly stretches over the main deck aft, creating a lovely protected area perfect for entertainment, while the fly bridge itself is protected by a large black carbon T-top light enough to be supported by only two thin poles.
Smooth lines and the blunt bow featured on all models of the SD series are especially appealing on this small model, where sporty spirit has been replaced by a more traditional look and feel.
Interior of the SD90 yacht
The aft platform is spacious, can be lowered underwater thanks to hydraulics, and its central part hides a tender garage. Two side steps lead onto the main deck, into a cockpit with a sofa that seats four and other movable furniture. Sustainability begins here, with ceiling made in Cimen, 3-mm thick sustainable cement tile, and recycled fabrics by the Italian pioneer of sustainability, Paola Lenti.
The glass sliding door opens into a large, spacious salon without visible separation of the dining and living spaces – the coffee table lifts to become the dining table, surrounded by sofa serving as dining room seating. This space is light and airy, with white sofas, sustainably sourced light American oak, and white ceiling to reflect the natural light seeping in through all those windows.
Secundus is an attractive 4-cabin luxury motor yacht on the charter market. As any Sanlorenzo yacht, she is immediately recognizable, at first glance.
The salon ends with a large glass mosaic wall made from recycled crystal, hiding from view the stairs leading below deck and the bridge: to the left, there is a hallway leading to the galley and the crew cabins in the bow, and to the right, the hallway to the small day head and the bow master cabin. The master is surrounded by windows, with a centrally placed bed and elements spread around it in a semi-circle.
Creative use of recycled materials
The private head is several steps lower than the cabin, has textured glass walls that seem to seep into the washing basin and the recycled material cabinet top by Agglotech. The same recycled material was also used for the shower cabin and the space around the toilet.
Centrally on the lower deck, there is room for three guest cabins, all doubles, with the one in the very middle serving as a second salon that turns into a cabin by joining the two sofas into one large bed. All cabins were furnished in recycled or sustainable materials and fabrics, like recycled cellulose bulkheads by Paper Factor, light, but sturdy as limestone and similar to touch.
Up on the bridge, there is, rather unusually, the white command console with one skipper seat and four multi-functional displays. To the both sides of the seat, there are sofas that can easily be turned into additional beds for guests or the crew. Behind the skipper’s seat there is a passage onto the fly bridge, directly under the T-top protecting the outdoor command console and a bar.

Aft on the fly bridge, there is a rather minimalist space with a coffee table that lifts and opens to turn into a dining table, and movable furniture, following the idea that space shouldn’t be crammed or blocked, but left to guests to shape it according to their current needs.
Sanlorenzo SD90 proves that luxury and quality can go hand in hand with sustainability even in the yachting industry, displaying creative use of recycled materials and fabrics in the service of pure yachting splendor.
