First Sanlorenzo 57Steel underway
Sanlorenzo starts the construction of the first unit of the 57Steel superyacht at the La Spezia shipyard.
Time, dedication, know-how and a precise focus: breaking down the established rules of the nautical world to create yachts and superyachts capable of exploring new concepts of life on board.
A yacht that aims to become one of the new stars of the Sanlorenzo superyacht range. Equipped with a hybrid diesel/electric propulsion system, underlining the company’s ability to always look to the future by continuously studying solutions that can reduce the impact on the marine ecosystem.
This sophisticated superyacht with her elegant clean lines, a characteristic common to all the Sanlorenzo ranges is distinguished by its straight bow, giving it a striking yet purposeful profile.
The new 57Steel is an ambitious project, the result of another successful collaboration between the shipyard and Studio Zuccon International Project, which has led to the creation of a 56.70 metre long yacht with 5 decks and a tonnage of 1000 GT.
Her extraordinary volumes, which are double compared to the 52Steel, have made it possible to offer indoor and outdoor spaces that are decidedly unexpected for a yacht of this size.
The main design challenge for the 57Steel was to find the perfect balance between volumes and proportions, a challenge that was fully realised. This was achieved by creating an innovative layout: the wheelhouse area, normally forward on the upper deck, has been relocated to an additional deck – a real bridge deck, normally reserved for larger yachts – thus making it possible to use the upper deck for a different purpose. This is where the owner’s cabin is located, a 54-square-metre space overlooking the very large Owners Deck, a private deck from which to enjoy an exclusive view over the sea and beyond.
The new layout has also made it possible to create a spacious full-beam VIP cabin forward of the main deck that can be used as a second owner’s cabin.
“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. 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 57 Steel as a skilful balancing act between content and container.”
An evolution of the 52Steel, the new model incorporates its winning features, in particular the design of the stern area where on the main deck, the swimming pool with its transparent floor, allows the passage of light into the environment below. An extraordinary beach club area of 110 square metres created by the opening balconies on three sides which become small beaches on the water’s edge, creating astonishing engagement with the sea.
One of the innovative elements of the 57Steel is the decision to place the garage at the bow, which has made it possible to create a large dedicated area equipped to accommodate tenders of up to 7.5m and numerous toys.
Thanks to a strategic division of space, the layout also allows for up to seven guest cabins and a further deck, below the lower deck, totally dedicated to services such as laundry, wardrobes and cold storage.
