Sanlorenzo has delivered the first 62Steel, Cloud 9, to its owner, who has previously owned a 46m superyacht from the Italian shipyard. The new five-deck, 1,300GT model has an overall length of 61.5m and a beam of 11.9m.
The 62Steel has been designed by Sanlorenzo’s technical and style departments, with long, banded windows extending across three decks contributing to a slender profile elegance. Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini handled the décor and furnishings of Cloud 9.
The 62Steel has five decks
The beach club is among the yacht’s standout features and is lit by the transparent bottom of the guest swimming pool, situated at the aft end of the main deck and designed with a sliding cover that transforms it into an extended sunbathing area.
The covered beach area on the lower deck spans 92sqm and includes relaxation areas, a bar area, gym and hammam. There’s another 40sqm of outdoor space on folding terraces aft and to either side, offering guests the chance to enjoy swimming, diving and sunbathing by the water.

To free up space in the beach area, the 62Steel has been designed with two midships garages, which contain the main 9m tender to starboard and the service tender and jetski to port.
The saloon on the main deck shares the 90sqm area with the dining room, which seats up to 16. The dining area is separated from the living area by a glass window with a thin metal mesh that allows all the light from the adjacent area to be captured while maintaining privacy.

The main deck also features six cabins, five of which are guest cabins and a massage room, two with king-size beds and three twin cabins with single beds.
The upper deck, reached by a lift, is dedicated to the owner and includes the vast 215sqm master suite, which has a forward-facing double bed with stunning views, two bathrooms, a walk-in dressing room, study and living area.

The owner’s suite is connected to the 140sqm outdoor area in the bow, which features large sunbathing and relaxation areas and a swimming pool. Aft is the 67sqm Sky Lounge, a space reserved for entertainment and games, while outside is an open-air al fresco dining area.

Paszkowski and Casprini opted for natural materials and colours in neutral tones that create a bright, relaxing atmosphere, balanced by the warm, rich grain of ebony with a glossy finish used to cover some of the furnishings.
The main material, together with oak, is Jerusalem stone, which is used to cover walls, bathrooms and niches, as in the guest cabins. The furnishings combine a selection of Minotti products with pieces designed by Paszkowski and Casprini and custom-made elements from local artisans.
Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini chose the décor and furnishings
Paszkowski said: “Creating the interior design for the 62Steel was an exciting process. Our long-standing collaboration with the shipyard and our knowledge of the owner allowed us, in collaboration with Margherita Casprini, to move into uncharted territory and create interiors with a distinctly contemporary feel.
“Principal materials such as marble, stone and oak are combined with glass and leather, while made-in-Italy brand furniture coexists with custom furnishings designed by our studio. Working with high-level professionals, an important shipyard and an experienced owner is always a very rewarding experience.”

The second 62Steel is also sold and will be delivered in the autumn, while a third unit is scheduled for early 2023. Sanlorenzo is represented in Asia by Simpson Marine, under Sanlorenzo Asia.
The Italian shipyard is building the first unit of the 57Steel, which features the float-in garage seen on the 52Steel but is double the volume of its smaller sister.
