Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo has laid the keel on its largest build to date, the 72Steel, less than a year after the sale was announced. 

A private ceremony attended by the owner was held at the shipyard over the weekend (Saturday 26), marking the first major construction milestone for the future flagship. Delivery is slated for 2025.

The design of the vessel saw Sanlorenzo team up once again with Zuccon International Project and Francesco Paszkowski Design. The owner's cabin will have a dedicated deck above the bridge deck while the main deck will be the area reserved for guests with lounge areas and five spacious cabins. One of the model's major features will be an extensive wellness area to ensure relaxation for all guests on board.

Antonio Santella, new product development director of Sanlorenzo’s Superyacht Division said: “The 72Steel is aiming to become one of the new protagonists of the Sanlorenzo range, thanks also to the hybrid diesel-electric engine system, which confirms again the company's increasing attention to the future, constantly studying concrete solutions to reduce the impact of its yachts on the marine ecosystem."

"The hybrid diesel-electric engine system represents a combination of innovative solutions which make it possible to significantly reduce emissions into the atmosphere and the sea, ensure high levels of comfort and rationalise the spaces dedicated to the engine area in favour of the internal volume available for owners and guests, thus presenting itself as a new paradigm for superyachts of this size,” he added.

The 72 metre project was sold in December 2021 by Edmiston & Company and will dethrone the shipyard's current flagship, Attila, by an extra six metres. However, the 72Steel will not be the flagship for long as construction will shortly begin on a 73Steel.
