The sale of a new build Sanlorenzo 52Steel in Asia trains the spotlight on this superyacht’s outstanding qualities

It won’t be long now before the new Sanlorenzo 52Steel superyacht arrives in Asia—the vessel is due for completion in Summer 2022—and the anticipation is high. “This sale represents a significant milestone for all parties involved with the 52Steel—being the largest Sanlorenzo sold in Asia to date,” says Nick Stratton, sales manager for Sanlorenzo Asia. “This proves once again the growing importance of this region on the superyacht scene.”

In Asia, Sanlorenzo is represented by Simpson Marine, a leading regional yacht sales, charter, and management company. It has brought to date two Sanlorenzo superyachts to Asia this year, and two more are under construction. “New models, including the much talked about 44 X-SPACE, will only help to strengthen Sanlorenzo’s presence in Asia even further,” Stratton points out. When it arrives, the Sanlorenzo 52Steel will be joining the growing Sanlorenzo fleet in the region, which already includes iconic models such as the 500EXP, The Alloy, SD126, SX112 and SL102 Asymmetric.

Strong, Distinct Profile
A collaboration between Sanlorenzo and Mauro Michieli’s Officina Italiana Design, the Sanlorenzo 52Steel is immediately recognizable for its strong profile articulated in simple, clean lines and two rows of extensive windows on the main and upper decks. The vessel has five decks which provides a rather stunning external configuration.

The vessel’s external lines are a natural evolution of the Sanlorenzo superyacht range and the yacht perpetuates Sanlorenzo’s refined style, the company communication points out. The yacht’s profile bears an elegant simplicity, with glass side deck bulwarks that allow for cleaner lines and abundant natural light inside.

Unique, Masterful Touches
At sub 500GT, Sanlorenzo 52Steel has large internal volumes and comfortable outdoor spaces, all of which allow extensive opportunities for customization. There are, however, details that will not escape attention, such as the floating staircase built from glass and white Carrara marble, a longer aft deck features a large swimming pool with a glass bottom, and a spacious bow that accommodates a lounge. Overall, the internal spaces are usually only available on much larger superyachts in the 65-metre category.

A masterful technological innovation on the Sanlorenzo 52Steel is found in the aft section on the main deck—the aforementioned large swimming pool. The technical department of Sanlorenzo’s superyacht division came up with the idea for the swimming pool equipped with a Jacuzzi and counter-current swimming options, as well as a fully transparent floor which allows natural light to filter into the beach club below. The beach club below has two folding terraces, one on each side of the yacht, that serve as platforms with direct access to the sea.

The same beach club area becomes a tender garage with a controlled flooding system, for the storage of a tender up to eight metres in length. This part of the yacht also houses a fully equipped, customised gym for its owner.

Commodious and Unique
The Sanlorenzo 52Steel offers accommodation for 12 guests in five suites, spread out over one master, two doubles, and two twin cabins, with two additional Pullman berths. There is plenty of room for the entire family to join the yacht on any adventure.

Sanlorenzo has created a name that is synonymous to outstanding made-to-measure Italian design. It is globally recognized as one of the leading shipyards of the world, where each yacht is designed and produced according to the specifications of each individual owner, thus creating a truly unique yacht.


Sanlorenzo offers a full range of production yachts from 76ft to 126 ft in composite, and custom-built steel aluminium superyachts from 40 metres to 70 metres.
