Sanlorenzo 64m flagship superyacht sold and in-build
by Chris Jefferies
The largest Sanlorenzo superyacht to date has been sold and is currently under construction in La Spezia, it has been revealed. The new 64 metre project is scheduled for delivery in 2019, the Italian yard added.
Work has begun at Sanlorenzo’s new facility, which will build yachts measuring from 40 to 80 metres. The first blocks have been assembled for the 64 metre yacht, which will have an overall interior volume of 1,500 gross tonnes when complete — an impressive figure for a yacht of this size.
As the rendering above shows, the sleek exterior styling features elegant lines by Officina Italiana Design, while Sanlorenzo has also promised innovative interiors. No interior designer has been revealed as yet and the total number of cabins is yet to be confirmed.
Hull number 140 for Sanlorenzo, this project will feature either six or seven guest cabins, the statement continues, with crew accommodation split across nine additional cabins.
Sanlorenzo added that the new flagship yacht would be fitted out with either twin 2,375hp CAT 3516C engines or twin MTU 16V 4000 M63 engines to achieve its estimated top speed of 17 knots.
Other projects currently under construction at Sanlorenzo’s La Spezia facility include a pair of 46 metre explorer yachts from the 460EXP series and two new 52 metre steel hulls, which are due to launch before the end of the year. The Italian yard added that its new premises enjoys direct access to the sea and will also be used for refitting large vessels.
