Luxe liveability

Sanlorenzo has begun construction of the first unit of the superyacht 57Steel at its La Spezia shipyard.

With this new vessel, the Italian boatbuilder aims to “break down the established rules of the nautical world to create yachts and superyachts capable of exploring new concepts of liveability on board in relation to the changing lifestyles of yacht owners.”

The 57Steel is destined to become one of the new stars of the Sanlorenzo range thanks to its hybrid diesel/electric engine system, confirming the company’s commitment to solutions that will reduce their vessels’ impact on the marine ecosystem.

Distinguished by its straight bow, the 57Steel is an ambitious project in partnership with Studio Zuccon International Project, which has led to the creation of a 56.7-metre long yacht with five decks and a tonnage of 1,000 GT.

It will be characterised by extraordinary volumes, doubled in comparison to the 52Steel, which have made it possible to offer indoor and outdoor spaces that are decidedly out of the ordinary for a model of this size and with unprecedented functional content.


The main design challenge for the 57Steel was to find the perfect balance between volume and proportion, which are a strong feature of this model.

This was achieved by creating an innovative layout that alters the traditional balance on board. The wheelhouse area, normally forward of the upper deck, has been relocated to an additional deck – a real bridge deck, as on larger yachts – thus making it possible to use the upper deck from a different perspective.

This is where the owner’s cabin is located, a 54-square-metre space overlooking the very large Owners Deck, a private deck from which to enjoy an exclusive view over the infinite sea.

The new layout has also made it possible to create a spacious full-beam VIP cabin forward of the main deck that can be used as a second owner’s cabin.

“The versatility of use that distinguishes the spaces on board is a key element of the 57Steel, which makes it possible to satisfy the many requests of a diverse and multicultural market like that of superyachts,” said designer Bernardo Zuccon.

“A model in which there is no ostentation of the brand and whose external lines are defined and extremely fluid, transparent and clear, in which the language of the shipyard shines through. We can define the 57Steel as a skilful balancing act between content and container.”

An evolution of the 52Steel, the new model incorporates its winning features, in particular the design of the stern area where on the main deck, the swimming pool with its transparent floor, allows the passage of light into the environment below, an extraordinary beach area of 110 square metres created by the opening of hatches on three sides that become small beaches on the water’s edge, creating astonishing chromatic effects.

One of the innovative elements of the 57Steel is the decision to place the garage at the bow, which has made it possible to derive a large space equipped to accommodate tenders of up to 7.5 metres and numerous water toys.

Thanks to a strategic division of space, the layout also allows for up to seven guest cabins and a deck below the lower deck, totally dedicated to services such as laundry, wardrobe and cold storage.
