Luxury yacht Achilles launched by Sanlorenzo


The Sanlorenzo 46 Steel yacht Achilles has hit the water after being transported by night through the streets of Massa-Carrara. She’s the fourth motor yacht of this flagship series, introduced in 2010, following sisterships Lammouche (2010), Carol (2011) and Rêve d’Or (2011). A total of six have been sold to date.

Built in steel and aluminium, this 46m displacement yacht is designed by Viareggio Division Style, a department of Sanlorenzo. Like her predecessors, she has all the features and details that made the first hull so successful: the stern beach club, a large lateral tender garage, a toy garage below the foredeck and the lower deck housing technical and service areas.

Twin 1,500kW Caterpillar engines give a top speed of 17 knots, a cruising speed of 15 knots and a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 12 knots.

Achilles will be delivered this summer, and is scheduled to be presented at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
