Sanlorenzo flagship yacht Seven Sins launched
by Chris Jefferies
Styled inside and out by Officina Italiana Design, Seven Sins was splashed today in a private ceremony in the presence of her Belgian owner. The launch comes in the same week that the yard announced the sale of the third hull in the 52Steel series.
According to the builder the new model has been created to “combine the classic Sanlorenzo design with the latest stylistic trends”. Key features include a spacious saloon with huge windows to allow plenty of natural light, while the upper deck includes a large living space and formal dining area.
The design also features a large rectangular pool aft on the main deck, with a transparent floor to allow light to filter down into the expansive beach club. This area contains a superyacht gym and floodable storage space for an eight metre tender, as well as fold-out side sections for direct access to the sea.
The owner’s cabin is located forward on the main deck, with a further five guest cabins on the lower deck. According to plans there is also accommodation for nine crewmembers.
Two Caterpillar 3512C engines will give the yacht a maximum speed of 17 knots and a range of 4,400 nautical miles when cruising at 11 knots. Following her maiden season, Seven Sins is due to go on display at the 2017 Monaco Yacht Show.
The 52Steel marks another important step for the Italian builder as it looks to expand its range of steel superyachts. Last year Sanlorenzo purchased a third site – Cantieri San Marco in La Spezia – which has now been named Sanlorenzo Superyachts. As well as the second 52Steel model, two 460Exp models and the new flagship Sanlorenzo 64Steel are already in build at the new facility.
