Sanlorenzo recently launched the 64Steel Attila, a 210-foot (64- meter) vessel—she is larger than any previous model they have built.
At 1,600 GT Attila offers enormous volume and plenty of guest deck space over five decks. The lower deck is readily accessible to the main deck via a double stairway that connects to the pool and dining area on the main deck. The beach club on the lower deck is equipped with a sauna, hammam, massage room, and gym at the waterline. With the side platforms open, the beach club encompasses an area of 840 square feet (78 square meters).
“The most important aspect that has characterized the definition and the concept of this yacht has been the wish to provide continuity between the beach club and an area we could call the al fresco veranda, that is, the rear part of the main deck where the pool is also located, passing through an impressive stairway,” says Antonio Santella, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Sanlorenzo superyacht division. “The thinking behind the layout in fact enables us to integrate the main deck and the beach club as much as possible. This characteristic thus enables us to experience both areas, around which the social life on board is focused, simultaneously, without dividing or separating the guests.”
Attila, flagship of Sanlorenzo’s Alloy line of superyachts with a fast displacement hull, offers the following characteristics:
- An Owner Deck’s, with a forward facing bedroom and a large al fresco whirlpool forward of it.
- The ability to be able to load two large 33-foot (10 meter) tenders
- A touch- and- go helipad, at the bow, which doubles as an extraordinary solarium when not in use.
- The 64Steel platform was designed so it can be extended to 70 meters upon request.
Attila’s owner, an Argentine industrialist, a repeat Sanlorenzo client who had his 46Steel Achille delivered in 2012, was closely involved with the planning and construction of the new yacht from the beginning. One particular challenging request he made was to have an enormous barbecue in the dining area of the main deck. The arrangement of an open fire in an enclosed space required the use of fireproof stainless steel and the installation of an advanced smoke removal system.
The four guest staterooms and the full beam VIP suite are located on the main deck. The interior of 64Steel Attila was furnished and decorated by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini. Much of the interior furnishings were custom designed while others were created by some of the leading companies of Italian and international design such as Summit, De Sede, Flexform and Catellani & Smith. “We worked full speed with the owner and the shipyard,” recalls Francesco Paszkowski, “defining a modern space in South American style with natural elements such as teak, next many other materials the owner loves and which are part of his personal experience. Attila is the yacht of a man who lives life to the fullest and loves his yacht.”
The crew quarters on the lower deck were designed with independent circulation routes with two service stairs and a service elevator for the rapid transfer of cold and dry goods into the storage rooms. Below the lower deck, the tank deck houses the refrigeration chamber, a refrigerated trash room, a multimedia room for the crew, a large laundry, and a climate-controlled “wine cellar” with a capacity of up to 500 bottles.
“In my private and company life, I like to deal with the same people, says the owner, “building a yacht is a commercial proposition, but it’s also a question of trust. I’ve known Massimo Perotti for years now and having built my last boat with him and his team, the trust was already well placed. I knew that Sanlorenzo would be able to build the yacht of my dreams.”
