Superyacht 70-Summer 2021
With the delivery of the first 62Steel, a second sold and a third currently being built Sanlorenzo has confirmed its leadership in metal built Superyachts as well.
Initialled by the shipyard’s in house design studio , with precious input from Francesco Paszkowski in terms of interior design and decor by Margherita Casprini, this 62 Steel “Cloud 9” is the umpteenth confirmation for Sanlorenzo that is continuing to be successful throughout its range of yachts whether in GRP, or metal used for the yard’s classic or explorer models which deservedly places the brand as number one overall.
The 62Steel probably tipped the scale in convincing the owner to choose it rather than another is the enormous quantity of available space in which to relax. There’s plenty offered, from comfortable interiors and welcoming exteriors. This 61.50 metre long superyacht with a beam of 11.90 metres and a gross tonnage of 1,300 tons also offers several opportunities to sample diverse experiences of life on board whether cruising fast or slow. “Cloud9” features welcoming exteriors as well as attractive ideal spots for moments of conviviality.
The owner’s quarters boast a surface area of 215 square metres situated along the main deck, two bathrooms, a walk-in dressing room, a study, living room and a 67 square metre sky lounge area with an external dining area capable of offering stunning panoramas. The owner’ s suite is mostly bright with loads of natural light and a 180° clutter free panoramic view of the surroundings. The suite connects to an external surface area of more than 140 square metres with a fully equipped sun lounge and swimming pool.
A further six cabins are situated along the same deck but further forward. Five are dedicated to visiting guests near a massage room while astern towards the stern end there are 90 square metres dedicated to the main living room and dining area which can seat up to sixteen. The crew’s quarters are distributed over 155 square metres along the lower deck and is equipped to accommodate twelve, a crew mess and a 26 square metre galley. The captain’s cabin is situated on the bridge offering more visibility than any of the others also in adverse weather conditions.
Returning to the topic of conviviality and the attractive spaces designed for that purpose, there’s a generous water front beach club which extends along a covered area of 92 square metres which includes a lounge in which to relax, a bar, gym and “Turkish bath” all lit up with natural light coming through the see through swimming pool bottom. The 40 square metres of the exteriors of the beach club area are made of retracting terraces containing garage space along port and starboard side at amidships to leave room enough for a stern lounge. Some of the other features, include a lift which links one deck to another, a “tank deck” containing laundry room, ships’ stores, freezer, garbage disposal machinery and water treatment equipment.
As for the interior decor Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini’s preferred choice translates into natural materials and coloured hues to contrast warm and rich stripes of ebony furniture. Minotti has supplied much of the accessories, while other complementary finishes have been carried out by local craftsmen and several have been designed by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini.
“Creating the interior design for this 62 metre was an exciting process. Our long standing collaboration with the shipyard and our knowledge of the owner, for whom we had already designed a 46 metre in the past, allowed us to move into uncharted territory and to create interiors with a distinctly contemporary feel, in collaboration with Margherita Casprini. Principal materials such as marble, stone and oak are combined with glass and leather and made in Italy brand furniture coexists with custom furnishings designed by our studio. Working with high level professionals, an important shipyard and an experienced owner is always a very rewarding experience”, said Francesco Paszkowski.
