Sanlorenzo has launched Scorpion, the eighth yacht in its 46 Steel line which it has been building since 2010.
The launch ceremony, officiated by an orthodox priest, was attended by the Russian owner with his family and friends, his crew and all the Sanlorenzo staff who have been involved in designing and building the yacht for the past two years.
Made to measure according to the style and requests of her owner, the yacht features spectacular openable windows in the master cabin, a built-in hydraulic ladder astern, a huge garage astern that houses the main 7-meter tender and a second large garage at bow with plenty of space for any water toys.
An outstanding external lighting system gives the whole boat a multicolor effect switching to different chromatic shades for a captivating and unique atmosphere.
For the interiors, the owner chose an art deco style with furniture by Architema and Fendi along with chairs and sofas specially built on design. The finishing is made in bronze brass, the inlays are in mother-of-pearl while the woods selected for the interiors go from the dark mahogany wood to the lighter “Abice artico” wood.
The staircase hosts a high crystal sculpture that changes its color at every deck, from blue to turquoise-green. Onboard all the mosaics are from Moscow.
Scorpion is a five-deck displacement superyacht in steel which can navigate for more than 3,500 nautical miles without refuelling.
The Sanlorenzo Superyacht Division is currently building two further new models which come to a value of more than 100 million Euro: the first two units of the brand new explorer range 460EXP (42m, 460gt to be launched in September at the Monaco Yacht Show 2015) and the first two units of the new Sanlorenzo flagship 52Steel (52m displacement superyacht in steel that will be launched in 2016).
