Sanlorenzo Yachts Launches First 57 Steel

Sanlorenzo has launched its first 57Steel superyacht in La Spezia. The launch of this model marks a very important date in the ongoing growth of the Sanlorenzo’s Superyacht Division.  This first example is 56.50 meters in length with five decks and a tonnage of 1050 GT. A prototype of the line, it will be delivered to its owner at the beginning of 2023.

In terms of design, Sanlorenzo’s new addition was overseen by Bernardo Zuccon, studio Zuccon International Project. This is the first time he has designed the exterior lines of a superyacht of this size.

“The 57 Steel is an ambitious project behind which there has been an intense amount of typological research. This very important study has been at the centre of Zuccon International Project’s development since the beginning of its collaboration with Sanlorenzo. The aim was to create a craft of around 1050 GT with functional and lifestyle features that are normally found on boats of a larger size. From a design point of view, the most important challenge was to find the right balance between the volume and proportions of the boat. The external lines have a defined and extremely fluid progression in which the yard’s language shines through. We can define 57Steel as “a skillful play of balance between content and container.”

Bernardo Zuccon, Zuccon International Project

This new superyacht allows for indoor and outdoor spaces that are decidedly out of the ordinary and revises the different functions of on-board spaces in a new way. In fact, the layout of the 57Steel alters the traditional balance whereby the wheelhouse, which is normally located at the bow of the upper deck, is relocated to another deck – the bridge deck typical of larger yachts. This offers the possibility of using the upper deck differently. It is here that we find the owner’s cabin overlooking the large Owner’s deck, a private space that guarantees an exclusive view of the sea.

Thanks to the unusual layout, a large full-beam VIP cabin, which can be used as a second owner’s cabin, has also been placed forward on the main deck. This large aft area includes a swimming pool with a transparent bottom that allows light to filter into the beach area below. The beach area can be further extended towards the water thanks to the folding terraces. 

Designed by Studio Vickers of London, the interiors were created by working closely with the client. This made it possible to create warm and cosy environments that perfectly meet the ideas and wishes of the owner.

”We were tasked with creating a warm, detailed and inviting interior for an experienced owner and his family aboard this 57-metre steel Sanlorenzo. The design process was a huge creative pleasure and the shipyard team responded really well to our design direction, producing a wonderful interior. We were excellently supported by West Nautical’s management and construction team, who were extremely professional. We have worked with Sanlorenzo before and know the care and attention to detail, but on this yacht, it was exceptional.”
