Sanlorenzo launches ‘Experienced Yachts’ a managing program for second hand yachts

May 03, 2012

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Sanlorenzo has announced the launch of its organic managing program for used boats – a total refitting program that Sanlorenzo trimmed for the management of its trade-in yachts. The management starts with the RINA quality certification of the process and the yard will implement strict controls, works and test on ever 450 points.

The situation of the second hand boat market is well known: a tremendously huge fleet, of very different kind of boats, from megayachts to small sailing boats, spread around in a wide territory according to the home port, is lying fairly abandoned and doesn’t seem to be interesting for a flabby demand not enough attracted by too many offers mostly in bad conditions and often not properly used.

Among the managers of this countless fleet – private owners, leasing companies overloaded by distressed boats and shipyards’ trade-ins collected in better years – the shipyards should have more possibilities to deal this values, to organise and propose them for a new life.

The automotive sector, always in front line looking for dynamic solutions, is giving the example, investing lots of energies, either economical, logistical and promotional to trade growing stocks in number, but decreasing in value. Creativity and initiative in managing programs and headlines are extremely bright: from “Select” by Citroën to “Premium Selection” by Bmw, from “First Hand” by Mercedes-Benz, to “Approved Used Audi”, by Audi.

Sanlorenzo - Experienced Yachts

Sanlorenzo - Experienced Yachts

How does it works in the boating business? Till now dead calm. In a motionless set Sanlorenzo, witnessing to his dynamic and innovative DNA not downgradable by the economic crunch, is launching the first organic managing program for the used boat fleet.

Pointed up by the head line “Brokerage, pre-owned, pre-loved, second hand, used…? Experienced Yachts.

And the rest is only words”, the program contains a strong economical and organizational effort and an innovative vision to be considered gigantic in the boating business and comparable only with the automotive sector.

The total refitting program that Sanlorenzo trimmed for the management of its trade-in boats, starts with the Rina quality certification of the process. The Register’s engineers evaluated the process according to RMQA, Refitting, and Maintenance Quality Assurance.

The shipyard will carry out on each and every boat a severe program of controls, works and tests on over 450 points complying with the RMQA rules, guaranteeing the registration and the traceability of all the steps of the process and releasing a test certification and the related check lists filled and authenticated by the Experienced Yachts staff. At this stage, the hull and propellers with their shafts are checked ashore, the engine data are registered during sea trials, oil samples are analysed, and all systems checked. It is then decided which kind of intervention is necessary to refurbish the possibly damaged parts. After that, a final test of any single component of machinery, equipment and systems is carried out before delivering the boat.

Experienced Yachts

Experienced Yachts

Regardless of the specific conditions of any boat, the following operations are performed on each Experienced Yacht:

Engine check

Generator check

Sanitation of grey and black water tanks

Sanitation of bilge

Replacement of fancoil filters

Replacement of anods

Application of antifouling

All these operations are part of the CYRPTM, Certified Yacht Reconditioning Programme, certified by the shipyard.

After having examined, repaired or changed tired parts, this intense program follows in the service and guarantee sections. All the Experienced Yachts can benefit, within one year from the purchase date, of a free check at Sanlorenzo’s Ameglia shipyard, or at an authorized and agreed yard, dedicated to cleaning of the hull, changing of the anodes, painting of the antifouling, cleaning of filters and bilges, washing of hull and superstructure, systems throughout control.

It’s important to underline that all these operations, from taking the boat in charge to delivery, are performed by the Experienced Yachts staff, made up by specialists coming from the different departments of Sanlorenzo, from composite to bodywork, from woodwork to systems, up to captains for the sea trials. To better control and even better propose the Experienced Yachts to new owners, Sanlorenzo gathered all its EY fleet in only two points: its marina beside the Ameglia shipyard which is also the headquarter of the company, and Porto Mirabello in La Spezia.

The new marina in Ameglia was opened in July 2011 and represents an important requalification of the right edge of river Magra. It is a work executed under the Plan of Boating Development of Montemarcello-Magra Natural Park. It is a river marina offering to Sanlorenzo shipyard berths up to 30 metres and a dock for the travel lift. This work is giving the land the shape and look worthy of an international shipyard and allows Sanlorenzo to operate in a qualified and efficient setting.

The Porto Mirabello “show room” is displaying the Experienced Yachts in a typical Mediterranean modern marina, offering all the related services.
