A 64-meter superyacht full of brilliant and innovative solutions, created to offer a peerless level of on-board social life
At 1,600 gross tons, 64 meters of length, five decks and a maximum beam of 13.10 meters (42ft 11in), the 64 Steel offers vast area for entertaining.
An example of Sanlorenzo’s prowess in the field of completely sartorial creations capable of interpreting the needs of owners with unique interior design, also in very large yachts, to guarantee the highest quality of life on board.
It is an innovative proposal, thanks to a layout and structures commonly found in large yachts, permitting Sanlorenzo to apply novel solutions to optimize on-board livability, combined with elegant external lines created by Officina Italiana Design.
The most important aspect of the definition and concept of the yacht has been the desire to create continuity between the main deck at the stern, with the pool and dining areas, and the beach club on the lower deck, through a double staircase. This characteristic makes it possible to fully enjoy both areas, as the focal points of life on board. With the transom and lateral platforms open, the beach club – which also contains a sauna, steam bath, massage room and fitness zone au fil de l’eau covers an exceptional area of 78 square meters.
The indisputable Flagship of Sanlorenzo’s superyachts “Steel” line with a fast displacement hull, the 64Steel offers various stylistic features that distinguish the design from other boats of the same size:
the ability to reserve an entire deck to the ship owner, the Owner Deck, which includes the bedroom facing the bow, which has a large whirlpool bath on the outside;
the ability to load two big tenders of over 10 meters in length which can also be limousine tenders, thanks to the garage’s height, as found in yachts over 80 meters long;
the maximum beam of 13.10 meters, also typical of a yacht over 70 meters long;
the helipad for touch and go, at the bow, which can be turned into an extraordinary solarium when not in use;
the 64Steel platform was designed to be extended from 64 to 70 meters to satisfy varying requests.
A real challenge for the production team was the creation of an enormous barbecue in the dining area of the main deck, a request which was particularly connected to the nationality of the owner, an Argentine entrepreneur who was already a Sanlorenzo client with the 46Steel Achille delivered in 2012 and was closely involved with the planning and construction of the new yacht from the beginning. The arrangement of an open fire in an enclosed space in fact required the use of A60 fireproof stainless steel and the installation of an advanced smoke removal system.
The interiors of 64Steel Attila have been furnished and decorated by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini, who have worked in close contact with the shipyard and above all with the client to formulate a space that would reflect his necessities, featuring natural materials like teak.
The bulkheads in glass and fabric add an extraordinary three-dimensional effect to the spaces, while in the lobbies backlit onyx helps to create a warm, enveloping atmosphere. Another leitmotif is steel, utilized throughout the yacht as a connection between various materials, to generate a harmonious relationship in the dominant colors of white, grey and brown.
For the furnishings, besides the custom-designed pieces, collaboration with some of the most outstanding Italian and international design firms, such as Summit, De Sede, Flexform and Catellani & Smith, just to name a few, has been of fundamental importance.
The crew, located in the Lower Deck, has private and independent routes with two service stairs and an elevator for the rapid transfer of cold and dry goods into the storage rooms. Below the Lower Deck, lies the Tank Deck with a refrigeration chamber, a refrigerated waste room, a multimedia room for the crew, a large laundry, and a climate-controlled “wine cellar” with a capacity of up to 500 bottles.
The four guest rooms and the full beam VIP suite are located on the Main Deck.
