EKKA Yachts secures order for a new-build Sanlorenzo 500EXP

EKKA Yachts, the brand representative of Sanlorenzo Yachts for Greece is delighted to announce today the signing of a new-building contract for the sale of the 10th unit of the 500EXP superyacht, due for delivery in June of 2023. The news follow the compa-ny’s recent announcement of signing an exclusivity agreement to represent the Italian yacht builder’s Sanlorenzo Yachts and Bluegame brands in Greece.

The sale of the 10th (yard number 146) unit of the successful 500EXP series marks a few important milestones for both EKKA and Sanlorenzo: EKKA Yachts’ first superyacht sale with Sanlorenzo, Sanlorenzo’s largest-ever new-building yacht to be delivered in Greece, EKKA Yachts’ second new-building contract over 37 meters (120’) in 2021, as well as the largest new-building sale to a Greek client since 2014. 

According to Dimitris Kyriazakos, Managing director of EKKA Yachts who brokered the sale, the 500-146 sets the ground for a very unique expression of the extremely successful 500EXP platform, that will set new standards in the market in terms of build-quality, onboard livability, guest entertainment, as well as exploration capabilities – the result of a rigorous two-month specking and designing period between the builder and the buyer’s very demanding and experienced technical team, leading up to the agreement.

The 499 gross-ton superyacht will feature an ultra high specification and is expected to be the highest spec explorer yacht ever built by the yard. She will comply to ABS class for commercial use, including ACCU and ENVIRO notations and meet the latest and most demanding environmental requirements for commercial yachting. EKKA Yachts secures order for a new-build Sanlorenzo 500EXPEKKA Yachts secures order for a new-build Sanlorenzo 500EXP

The 500EXP model boasts four and a half decks of luxurious accommodation, coupled with unbeatable tender and toy carrying facilities – courtesy of her explorer-style quarterdeck which features a 7.5 ton concealable hydraulic crane as well as a 42 sq.m. beach area and a 18 sq. m. bathing platform. 
Hull n. 146 will include technical and comfort features never found on a 500 EXP model before. Accommodation will be provided for 14 guests in six luxurious staterooms, with crew accommodation provided for 9 members in 5 cabins.EKKA Yachts secures order for a new-build Sanlorenzo 500EXPEKKA Yachts secures order for a new-build Sanlorenzo 500EXP

We are even more enthused by the level of commitment and expertise the superyacht division has demonstrated in addressing a very demanding and knowledgeable Greek client from the top tier of commercial shipping.” proclaimed Dimitris Kyriazakos.
