Built by Sanlorenzo and delivered in 2019, 64.25m luxury yacht Attila he 64Steel offers features usually found on larger superyachts – such as the 275 m2 private Owner’s Deck – which combine with innovative layout solutions and elegant exterior lines to create a truly remarkable superyacht.
In 2019, 64Steel Attila was awarded the ‘Best Interior Design’ Trophy for yachts over 30m at the Cannes Yachting Festival World Yacht Trophies Gala Dinner.
She can accommodate up to 12 people with 18 crew members. With a gross tonnage of 1600 GRT and at a striking 64 metres in length, 64Steel Attila is the result of close collaboration between the studio Officina Italiana Design and the styling division of Sanlorenzo. Her internal décor is the work of Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini.
The Main Deck at the stern and the Beach Club on the Lower Deck surely represent the most distinctive areas of the project. A strong hallmark of design and layout is the double stairway that connects the pool and dining area to the Beach Club equipped with a 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 78 square meters.
“The most important aspect that has characterized yatcht’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. The idea behind the layout in fact enables us to integrate the main aft deck and the beach club as much as possible. This characteristic thus enables us to enjoy both areas, around which the social life on board is focused, simultaneously, without separating the guests.” Antonio Santella, Vice President Sales & Marketing, Sanlorenzo Superyacht Division.
A real challenge for the production team was the creation of an enormous barbecue in the dining area of the main deck, a request which was particularly connected to the nationality of the owner, an Argentine entrepreneur who was already a Sanlorenzo client with the 46Steel Achille delivered in 2012 and was closely involved with the planning and construction of the new yacht from the beginning. The arrangement of an open fire in an enclosed space in fact 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 cold and dry 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. The 64Steel Attila interiors were furnished and decorated by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini. “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, near which the owner wanted to add and mix many other materials he loves, and which are part of his personal experience. Attila is the yacht of a man who lives life to the fullest. And lives his yacht.”
Regarding the furnishings, many pieces were custom designed, while others were created by some Italian and international leading design companies such as Summit, De Sede, Flexform and Catellani & Smith
