With an LOA of more than 64 metres, a beam of over 13 and with a gross tonnage of 2,600 GT, “Attila” is not only Sanlorenzo’s flag ship but is also the largest yacht ever built by an Italian shipyard.
The Sanlorenzo 64 Steel “Attila” represents another memorable goal the brand has reached. This will most certainly be entered in this shipyard’s timeline. “Attila” the largest off the chocks from the company’s shipyards has been developed thanks also to the excellent work carried out by Sanlorenzo with the preceding 46 Steel yacht “Achille” which was delivered to the owner in 2012. The owner was so impressed with the high qualitative standard the shipyard had attained that he returned to Sanlorenzo to have his new yacht drawn up. The owner collaborated with all of the in house team, to draw up the project design he wanted on this 64 metre with precious contribution from Francesco Paszkowski Design for the interiors, and Officina Italiana design studios that drew up Attila’s exteriors.

The in house team taking part in the project was Sanlorenzo’s Ufficio Stile with Officina Italiana Design who also worked closely together to deliver continuity between the cockpit’s lounge area aft in the stern with pools, dining areas and beach club situated on the lower deck giving way to an elegant stairway which links both areas as a single communicating one. The beach club comprising the transom and two lateral sides when opened out offer a surface area of 78 square metres in which there’s space enough for a sauna, a hammam, a massage parlour and gym. The cockpit’s dining area has been equipped with an enormous barbecue as requested by the owner as well, a difficult task to accomplish but it was solved by deploying A60 stainless which is fire proof and a ground breaking fumes extractor.
The 64 Steel platform originally intended to reach 70 metres in fact it is therefore not surprisingly beamier than the norm which translates in the availability of more interior volumes which further a sense of space. Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini oversaw the interiors and decor. Their know- how and creativity furthered the sense of available space even more so by using glazed bulkheads and fine materials releasing depth in a three dimensional manner. While backlit onyx offers a warm and welcoming effect where steel is expertly deployed in connection with several materials which blend the dominating colours made up of white, gray and brown hues. Some of Attila’s decor was ‘made to measure’ but furniture from Summit, De Sede, Flexform and Castellani & Smith was used also.
A whole deck is dedicated to the owner which comprises a large suite with ocean view, private terrace and water-massage tub. Four guest cabins as well as the full beam VIP suite are situated along the main deck while the crew’s quarters have been distributed along the lower one which is accessed via reserved passages and independent corridors, as well as two service stairs by which to transfer cold storage goods quickly into the appropriate stocking places. These are installed along the tank deck which offers a ‘cool’ room for waste and highly refrigerated deep freeze cellars, a crew mess room with multimedia entertainment gear and a wine cellar with room enough for 500 bottles.
In addition to a touch and go helipad installed forward in Attila’s bow section which converts into a very appropriate and delightful sun bathing spot and garage for a tender and service boat or whatever other combination of water craft not exceeding ten metres.
