Second Sanlorenzo 52 Steel takes shape in La Spezia

Italian yard Sanlorenzo has shared new pictures of its second 52 Steel yacht, which is nearing completion at the yard’s La Spezia facility.

Styled inside and out by Officina Italiana Design, this 52 metre superyacht is the follow-up to Seven Sins, which hit the water for the first time in January.

These new images were taken as the second Sanlorenzo 52 Steel moved sheds, and reveal that the aluminium superstructure is largely complete. The next stage will be hull fairing and interior fit-out, with the launch likely to take place before the end of the year.

Accommodation on board this steel-hulled displacement yacht is for 12 guests split between five staterooms. These include an owner’s cabin, two double rooms and two twins with Pullman berths. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allows for a staff of up to nine people.

The Sanlorenzo 52 Steel’s beam of 9.23 metres allows for a total interior volume just shy of the 500GT mark, while the maximum draught is 2.65 metres. Key features include a spacious superyacht sundeck and a foredeck seating area — ideal for relaxing away from prying eyes.

Power will come from a pair of 2,000hp Caterpillar 3512C engines for a top speed of 17 knots. When trimmed back to 11 knots, a transatlantic cruising range of 4,400 nautical miles should be possible, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 55,000 litres.

Other superyacht projects currently under development at the Italian yard include the third Sanlorenzo 52 Steel, which is scheduled for April 2018, and the flagship Sanlorenzo 64 Steel, which is expected to hit the water in 2019.
