Sanlorenzo moves forward in its program for metal megayachts.
Sanlorenzo 46 Steel megayacht Lammouche is a 46 metre, three deck displacement hull yacht, with a semi-wide body, with high tensile steel hull and 5083 aluminium superstructure. Motor yacht Lammouche was launched in February 2010 and was delivered to her owner in early summer. She sailed through most Mediterranean, before landing at the Monaco Yacht Show to be introduced to the international press and to the industry professionals.
The exterior design of super yacht Lammouche is by Viareggio Division Style department of Sanlorenzo. Captivating and extremely well-balanced, it provides maximum light to the interiors and is perfectly in line with the design philosophy underlying Sanlorenzo’s displacement yacht range. The 46 Steel represents the evolution beyond the 38m mark and a perfect continuity with SD92 and SD122, also reflected in the design of the great glazed surfaces running along the sides of the main deck, and in the distinctive “whisker” at the aft section of the superstructure.
The interiors of this first 46 Steel motor yacht Lammouche, are designed by Francesco Paszkowski, who worked in close collaboration with the owner and was also responsible for the interior decoration of M/Y Lammouche, and her highly sophisticated interior lighting system that uses indirect lights to create environments characterised by “falls” of light along the walls and unique atmospheres.
Plenty of interior and exterior space
For the 46 Steel, Sanlorenzo was inspired from the interior layouts of larger yachts in order to ensure significant volumes and avoid any compromise in terms of comfort and space aboard. To achieve this result, Sanlorenzo Technical Department designed a large hull with bulbous bow and open stern that is providing the required interior volumes. The hull was tank tested in Wageningen, confirming high performances, optimal stability and trim, limited roll and pitch, as required by the MCA certification standards. The gross tonnage of the 46 Steel is 499 GT, a value that permits to simplify rules and systems, compared to the rules required for the commercial vessels over 500 GT. Among the strong points of 46 Steel is the series of terraces overlooking the sea without any obstacles or aft barriers hiding the view of the landscape.
Comfort aboard Sanlorenzo’s Superyacht Lammouche is ensured by a highly sophisticated construction technique, typical of the best yachts, known as box‐in‐box. Each interior space consists of a self-supporting shell, a “floating” box connected to the structure through elastic and anti-vibration materials placed in between to dampen and cut off all vibrations and noise.
Under lower deck
A significant design feature of 46 Steel, for the first time in a yacht of this size, is the under lower deck, a further deck situated below the lower deck. It consists of a central tunnel running from the engine room to bow, and housing the technical areas (stabilizer fins, bow-thrusters and machinery) and the service areas (laundry, with 3 washing machines and 3 driers, ironing board, and refrigeration zone with freezer and cold storage rooms). Usually this tunnel is tight and narrow even in larger yachts. On 46 Steel it is high enough to walk through, simplifying system checking and maintenance. The under lower deck has an additional access to the engine room, enabling the Chief Engineer to inspect the area without forcing him to cross to the main deck, where the guest area is located.
The garage of 46 Steel, located by beam and large enough to accommodate a big tender, has a starboard door, to take full advantage – both internally and externally – of the vast stern area that houses the Beach Club – a fitness area complete with fitness equipment (SPA) and a dedicated bathroom. The Beach Club of the luxury yacht Lammouche looks onto a huge bathing platform, with the floor at the same level, with no steps. From the main deck you can reach the Beach Club through two stair cases: outside from the cockpit and inside from the salon. Walking along the lower deck towards the fore section we find the accommodations for the guests. In the first yacht, superyacht Lammouche, the cabins were designed according to a traditional layout, as requested by the owner, with two VIP cabins and two twin bed cabins, positioned in the centre of the craft and provided with luminous windows. The crew’s quarters, located in the bow, are very comfortable and include a galley, with a dinette, four double cabins each with own bathroom with shower, accommodating eight crews. The captain’s cabin is located on the upper deck. The crew zone develops upwards, in the direction of the upper decks which can be reached through a wide service stair providing a dedicated route for the traffic of the crew.
Guest’s onboard megayacht Lammouche can move up and down the different decks through a splendid glass stair case positioned in the centre of the yacht that rises up from a veritable foyer. There is no dining room on the main deck of this first 46 Steel motor yacht Lammouche, (it is moved on the upper deck): as requested by the owner, the dining area has been eliminated to leave room for an enormous salon, furnished with sofas and armchairs that provide an elegant conversation and relaxing zone. The access to the cockpit is through a bar area delimited by automatic sliding doors. The cockpit is furnished with plush L-shaped sofas arranged around a table and has stairs leading down to the Beach Club. As we move forward toward the bow, we come across a service area, on the port side, housing the pantry and the professional galley; on the starboard side, instead, we find the foyer with the main stairway. From the foyer, proceeding to bow, we pass by the day toilet, and reach the owner’s suite that includes the master cabin, an office and a large walk-in closet. The full beam master cabin, is impressive for its size and has a private bathroom with a relaxing zone and a whirlpool tub. Two symmetrical stowage facilities have been provided on the exterior of the fore section of the main deck, with room for a jet ski and a rescue boat.
On the steel yacht Lammouche, the central stairway leads to the upper deck, where another great salon is delimited by large glazed surfaces on all sides, affording a 360-degree view of the sea. The windows can be opened to change the room into an open-air environment. Here is where the owner required the dining room: a round table for 14 people is surrounded by huge glass round sliding doors and that open fully for an “al fresco” meal. The salon is equipped with a bar counter and, in front, a comfortable L-shaped sofa and a coffee table. The 46 Steel wheel house, includes the pilot area and a separate radio room. The captain cabin consists of a double bed and a bathroom with shower. Outside the wheel house on the flying bridge decks two consoles, port and starboard, containing the main controls, engines and thrusters, allow the captain to manoeuvre with good visibility on the sides.
The fifth bridge of 46 Steel motor yacht Lammouche is a remarkable flying bridge, for its size and for the typical Sanlorenzo hard-top that reminds the continuity between past and present. The aft section is devoted to the sun, the central part houses an open-air dining zone, furnished with an oval table for 14 people and a dedicated bar counter. In the fore part is a whirl pool and the sundecks. To delimit the outdoor areas aboard 46 Steel, here and on the decks below, instead of the classical steel tubes usually fit on this size yachts, Sanlorenzo opted for specially designed glass partitions that do not obstruct the view of the surrounding sea, offering a suggestive, highly emotional view of the panorama that can be enjoyed from the deck.
The 46 Steel super yacht Lammouche is powered by two Caterpillar 3512B outputting 2,040 HP (1,500 kW). Electric power on board is produced by two 115 kW Norther Light and one 20 kW emergency gen sets. The fuel tanks have 45,000 litres capacity and 57,000 litres on request. Water tanks have 16,000 litres capacity with a daily production of 14,000 litres assured by a double Idromar watermaker system. The tank tested design speed of 17 knots, was not only reached at 2/3 load, but by-passed of .30. The endurance at fast cruising speed of 15 knots is 2,000 miles, while at 12 knots rises to 4,000 miles, to become more than 5,000 miles at 10 knots. The engine room was specifically designed for an easy maintenance of all the systems. This area is sided by a control room where are concentrated all the electric panels and switches.
