Sanlorenzo has launched the first unit of the 57Steel line in the setting of La Spezia, the site of the shipyard’s superyacht production. This first 56.50-metre long vessel with five decks and a tonnage of 1050 GT is the prototype of the line and will be delivered to her owner in early 2023.
In terms of design, Sanlorenzo’s new addition was overseen by Bernardo Zuccon, studio Zuccon International Project, who for the first time ever designed the exterior lines of a superyacht of such dimensions. This new superyacht allows for indoor and outdoor spaces that are decidedly out of the ordinary and revises the different functions of the 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 – and offers the possibility of using the upper deck in a different way. It is here that we find the owner’s cabin overlooking the large Owner’s deck, a private deck 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 area below, softly punctuating the spaces of the beach area, which 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 met the ideas and wishes of the owner.
