Sanlorenzo SL78

Sanlorenzo Asia, represented by Simpson Marine, announced the sale of a new Sanlorenzo SL78 into Indonesia. It is due to arrive in March 2021. In addition to the SL78, a pre-owned 2018 Sanlorenzo SL118 has also been sold into Indonesia and is expected to arrive in March 2021. The Sanlorenzo SL118 is the former flagship of the SL range, renowned for its modernity and innovative features throughout the yacht.

“I’m excited to start 2021 with the arrival of these two iconic yachts into Indonesia,” says Paul Whelan, Simpson Marine Indonesia Country Manager. “Both yachts have been purchased by first time yacht owners.” Whelan has been Simpson Marine’s general manager for Southeast Asia for over ten years. He was based in Singapore before moving to Indonesia three years ago.

Indonesia has over 17,000 islands and before the onset of Covid-19, was becoming a well-known superyacht destination. Buyers are now becoming more prominent.

In its statement, Simpson Marine said the new yachts will be among the first Sanlorenzo deliveries of 2021 to Asia. Simpson Marine enjoyed significant sales success in 2020.
