Sanlorenzo to launch 57Steel in 2022
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.
Sanlorenzo has revealed in-build photos of the 57Steel, a new addition to the Italian builder’s Superyacht range that’s expected to launch in 2022.
The 57Steel’s recognisable features include the float-in garage and glass-bottomed pool above as seen on the 52Steel, with the beach area expanded to 110sqm by opening hatches on three sides.
However, the 56.7m superyacht with a beam of 10.45m has an interior volume of 1,000GT, meaning the five-deck 57Steel is double the size of the 52Steel, a sub-500GT build.
The 57Steel, which can be equipped with a hybrid diesel/electric engine system, can accommodate 12 guests and 12 crew, and was designed by the shipyard in partnership with its regular collaborator Studio Zuccon International Project.
“The versatility of use that distinguishes the spaces on board is a key element of the 57Steel, which makes it possible to satisfy the many requests of a diverse and multicultural market like that of superyachts,” Bernardo Zuccon said.
“A model in which there is no ostentation of the brand and whose external lines are defined and extremely fluid, transparent and clear, in which the language of the shipyard shines through. We can define the 57Steel as a skilful balancing act between content and container.”
The wheelhouse area, normally forward of the upper deck, has been relocated to an additional deck above, a proper bridge deck as seen on larger yachts.
This has led to the location of the 54sqm owner’s cabin on the upper deck, which has a large aft deck and an enormous foredeck including a spa pool and multiple seating and lounging areas. The new layout also includes a spacious full-beam VIP cabin forward on the main deck.
The layout also allows for up to seven guest cabins and includes a tank deck, below the lower deck, dedicated to services such as laundry, wardrobe and cold storage. The garage in the bow can accommodate tenders of up to 7.5m and numerous toys.
As well as the 52Steel and 57Steel, Sanlorenzo’s Superyacht collection also includes the 62Steel, 64Steel, 44 Alloy and 500Exp. Sanlorenzo is represented in Asia by Simpson Marine.
The Simpson Yacht Charter fleet has been boosted by two Sanlorenzo yachts – the first-ever SX76 in Hong Kong and an SL104 in Phuket
