Sanlorenzo to Build the New 73 Steel Superyacht

Sanlorenzo Superyacht Division is awarded contract to build the fleet’s new flagship, the 73Steel

Sanlorenzo’s sustained growth continues, once again confirming its undisputed leadership in the steel superyacht sector with a significant new sale.

Sanlorenzo’s Superyacht Division, recently sold the largest superyacht ever built by the yard, the 73Steel. Nine steel vessels have now been sold in 2022, increasing the 23-strong fleet of 44-73m superyachts currently under construction.

This new steel giant will have an overall length of 73 metres. An innovative diesel-electric propulsion system aimed at minimising emissions, and a completely unconventional layout will take the connection between interior, exterior and nature to a level not seen before. The exterior lines will, once again, be created by the Zuccon International Project studio, while the décor promises to be innovative and revolutionary.

“The design of the new 73Steel represents a fascinating new chapter in the yard’s history, not only because of its size, which is currently the largest ever built, but also because it is a testament to how strongly the company believes in the evolution and importance of a complex market such as the superyacht market.

The BGM75 benefits from increased stability, large volumes, and reduced fuel consumption, demonstrating the yard’s capacity for sustainable design. The ultra-efficient hull is derived from the America’s Cup. Designed by Philippe Briand, a world-renowned expert in the design of performance hulls, optimisation of the Volvo IPS propulsion system means 50% less power is required than mono hull vessels of the same volume.

Carbon in the hulls and the use of lightweight materials for all non-structural parts including furnishing components, also contribute to an impressive reduction in fuel consumption. An additional detail in sustainability is the production of 5kW of green energy, guaranteed by 56 solar panels that can be installed on the deckhouse.

As designers, we ca be nothing but proud, once again, to participate in this new adventure, basing our project research on the development of a design that, despite the large volumes available, is able to convey a principle of extreme dynamism, sportiness and contemporaneity. It is exactly this subtle dialogue between the search for a strong stylistic identity and a constant inspiration to stylistic features now consolidated within the brand’s DNA, that is the perfect interpretative key to this project.

Each line has been sculpted to emphasise the tension and plasticity of the forms, which seem to be in constant motion, without pause, modifying and adapting themselves with the aim of creating the perfect dialogue between interior and exterior spaces; a dynamic and incessant rhythm that aims at a formal evolvement able to reconstruct every time and in every detail that powerful identifiable language that has always characterised Sanlorenzo products.”

73Steel will be designed to create the most intense interaction between ocean and nature on board at multiple levels. This visionary design project perfectly balances form and function, innovation and technology, once again bringing something surprisingly unprecedented on board.

The focus on maximum comfort combined with meticulous attention to aesthetics will create spaces in which family intimacy and privacy will be at the heart of this unparalleled superyacht.
