The foundation for the five decks that will characterize the Sanlorenzo 72 Steel is in place. The shipyard held a private keel-laying ceremony with the owner of hull number one in the series within the past few days.
Ranking as the largest Sanlorenzo Superyacht Division project to date, the yacht will remain under construction through 2025. Stretching 236 feet (72 meters) in length, she should impress even more for her 1,850-gross-ton volume. Her beam, meanwhile, should be close to 43 feet (13.1 meters).
Although many of the details about the design remain confidential for now, the first 72 Steel will feature interiors by Francesco Paszkowski Design. The studio and the owner are striving for the rooms to be as relaxing as the alfresco spaces. Among the highlights inside, an entire deck is the owner’s deck, sitting just above the bridge deck. All of the guest staterooms—five in total—spread across the main deck, benefitting from big glass for better views. The main deck still has a saloon, however. Finally, this Sanlorenzo 72 Steel has a wellness area onboard, too, perhaps with a spa and/or gym.
With styling by Zuccon International Project, the largest Sanlorenzo superyacht further has a diesel-electric propulsion system. The idea is to allow the yacht to operate solely on electric power at times, thereby reducing emissions. In related news, the shipyard has been investing in researching and developing more environmentally friendly systems for a few years. In fact, it intends to reveal its first hydrogen fuel cell-equipped superyacht in 2024, a member of its 50 Steel series. The system will handle the yacht’s hotel load, therefore eliminating diesel gensets. Additionally, the shipyard signed an agreement with MTU a few months ago to develop even more solutions for hotel loads and primary propulsion.
In the meantime, hull number two in the Sanlorenzo 72 Steel series is under contract as well.
