Sanlorenzo begins construction of the first 72Steel
The new flagship of the superyacht fleet will be the largest ever built by the yard.
In a very private ceremony with the owner in attendance, the keel of the first Sanlorenzo 72Steel was laid. This marks the official start of the construction of this remarkable flagship superyacht.
The 72Steel is an innovative project, yet it maintains Sanlorenzo’s unmistakable style and DNA: an imposing 72-metre-long metal yacht, five decks and a volume of 1850 GT. Due to be launched in 2025, a second unit of the same line has also been sold.
Zuccon International Project and Francesco Paszkowski Design will address the exterior lines and interior design. The 360 degrees design centres around onboard liveability, in which the owner’s cabin will have a dedicated deck. Interiors and exteriors will work together in a smart and functional manner, and feature extensive glazing.
This new protagonist of the Sanlorenzo range will be one of the first yachts of the future, being equipped with a hybrid diesel-electric motor system, the result of the shipyard’s ongoing research into real solutions to reduce the environmental impact of its vessels. This system embodies the best green technology on the market to significantly reduce emissions in the atmosphere and at sea. A high level of onboard comfort is achieved by streamlining spaces dedicated to the engine area, in favour of internal volumes for owners and guests.
At present, there are 22 steel and/or aluminium Sanlorenzo superyachts from 44 to 73 metres under construction. The Superyacht Division continues to record steady growth and reaffirms its leadership in the metal sector with a fleet of 45 vessels in progress.
