Italian superyacht builder Sanlorenzo has launched its largest yacht yet – the 64m Sanlorenzo 64Steel Atilla. At 1,600 gross tonnes, a length of 64m, five decks and an internal maximum width of 12.5m, the new flagship offers maximum onboard liveability due to its innovative layout.

The main deck at the stern and the beach club on the lower deck are said to represent the most distinctive areas of the project, Sanlorenzo claims. A double stairway connects the pool and dining area to the beach club equipped with sauna, hammam, massage room, and gym, right at the waterline. With the bow mirror and the side platforms open, the beach club covers an area of 78sq m.

“The most important aspect that has characterised the yacht’s concept has been the will to obtain continuity between the beach club and an area we could call an ‘al fresco’ veranda – that is, the rear part of the main deck where the pool is also located, passing along an impressive stairway,” says Antonio Santella, VP of sales and marketing, Sanlorenzo Superyacht Division.

“The idea behind the layout in fact enables us to integrate the main aft deck and the beach club as much as possible,” he adds. “This characteristic thus enables us to enjoy both areas, around which the social life on board is focused, simultaneously, without separating the guests.”

The flagship of Sanlorenzo’s superyacht ‘Steel’ line with a fast displacement hull, the 64Steel offers various stylistic features that distinguish the prototype/design from other boats of the same size. These include:

  • the ability to reserve an entire deck to the ship owner, the owner’s deck, which has a bedroom facing the bow and large whirlpool on the outside
  • the ability to load two big tenders of over 10m in length which can also be limousine tenders, thanks to the garage’s height, as found in yachts of over 80m in length
  • the maximum internal beam is 12.5m, also typical of a yacht over 70m 
  • the helipad for ‘touch and go’ at the bow, which can be turned into a solarium when not in use
  • the 64Steel platform was designed to be extended from 64m to 70m 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 that was connected to the nationality of the owner, an Argentine entrepreneur who was already a Sanlorenzo client with the 46Steel Achille delivered in 2012. The arrangement of an open fire in an enclosed space required the use of A60 fireproof stainless steel and the installation of an advanced smoke removal system.

The crew, located in the lower deck, has private and independent routes with two service stairs and an elevator for the rapid transfer of 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.
