The first unit from the 52Steel series, superyacht Seven Sins, has now been delivered in Monaco by Sanlorenzo. Launched in January this year, M/Y Seven Sins is a beautiful five-deck luxury yacht, which incorporates luxury with a timeless exterior profile created by Officina Italiana Design.

Lavish amenities are offered to Seven Sins’ guests to make sure everyone enjoys cruising aboard the yacht. There are relaxation, dining, party and socialising spaces located in the exterior layout. The sundeck is of an enormous size and has a bar, Jacuzzi, foredeck solarium and alfresco dining.

The yacht’s tender is placed on the louvered transom plate, while side shell doors to port and starboard add to the transformative nature of this area. The tender is released when the transom plate rises, and the garage gets flooded. Meanwhile, the sideways terraces are opened, and a section easily lowers down from overhead– not only completing the floor of a large teak-soled Beach Club, but also exposing the transparent bottom of the swimming pool above.

The interior decor was personalised and features ceiling glazing in the salons, which provide outstanding views and relaxing ambience. Seven Sins sleeps 12 guests in the following cabin configuration: owner’s master suite, two VIP cabins, two large ensuite cabins and another double cabin on the flybridge. The guests are assisted by a highly professional crew of 10.

Motor yacht Seven Sins can reach a top speed of 17.50 knots, thanks to her twin MTU 12V4000 M63 engines. At a cruising speed of 15 knots, the yacht has a range of 4000 miles.

Sanlorenzo launched the third 460Exp unit in May, and currently, has another three under construction. The shipyard is also busy with construction of three further 52Steel models, one 40 Alloy unit. The new flagship 64-meter megayacht project 64Steel is also underway at Sanlorenzo.

Seven Sins will be attending the Monaco Yacht Show in September 2017.
