Superyachts That Make A Huge Splash
More than just a status symbol, owning a yacht means having the freedom to sail in style all around the globe. One of the largest and prolific shipyards, Sanlorenzo offers a variety of yachts to cater to its discerning clients.
At 64 metres long and an internal maximum width of 12.5 metres, the five-deck yacht is Sanlorenzo’s largest. Its design highlight is the double stairway that connects the pool and dining area to the ‘Beach Club’ equipped with a sauna, hammam, massage room and gym. It comes as no surprise that the 64Steel Attila received the Best Design Trophy award at the Cannes 2019 World Yacht Trophies Gala Dinner, considered as the Oscars in the yachting industry.
Equally impressive is the 44.5 metre-long and nine metre-wide 44Alloy, which can reach top speeds of 23 knots. Made of aluminium, it is characterised by clean, sporty lines and features a sky lounge on the upper deck. This vehicle boasts a mezzanine loft set-up in the master cabin, which spans over three levels and covers an area of 145 square metres, a feature that has never been introduced in a yacht of this size, according to Antonio Santella, Vice-president of Sales and Marketing at Sanlorenzo’s Superyacht Division.
Another award-winning yacht is the SD96. With an interior created by architect and designer, Patricia Urquiola, it was awarded the Best Layout Trophy (in the 24 metres to 30 metres category) at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival. “The materials, shapes and colors evoke the marine world, creating a flowing and elegant space full of natural colors,” explains Urquiola. Innovation is also key in the interior design. For example, the principal living area on the main deck, characterised by cannulated oak panelled walls and parquet flooring, showcases the concept of moduarity.
This cruiser is a stunner with large windows that showcase spectacular scenery and seascapes. Onboard accommodation is for 12, with all cabins generously appointed with a bathroom each. This mean machine is powered by twin CAT C32 ACERT engines and can reach a maximum speed of 15.5 knots.
