Italy’s Sanlorenzo has delivered the first unit of its 62Steel superyacht, Cloud 9.
With an overall length of 61.5 metres, a maximum beam of 11.9 metres, a gross tonnage of 1,300 tonnes and five decks, Cloud 9 offers an array of features you’d expect of a much larger yacht.
The 62Steel boasts an entire deck exclusively to the owner, which is reached by lift. The dedicated owner’s deck includes an expansive 215-sqm owner’s suite, which is also connected to the 140-sqm outdoor area in the bow, with sunbathing areas and a swimming pool. The owner’s deck has two bathrooms and a walk-in dressing room as well as a study, living area and, aft, the 67-sqm sky lounge, completed by an open-air dining room boasting panoramic views.

At sea level, the impressive beach club is lit by the transparent bottom of the swimming pool aft of the main deck, where owner and guests can enjoy a bar, gym and hammam, plus a further 40 sqm of folding terraces, aft and to either side, which offers guests the change to relax in and around the water.
Two garages offer access through side openings, amidship, which contain the main 9-metre tender, a service tender and jet ski.
The main saloon shares the 90 sqm area with the dining room, which seats up to 16 diners. At the stern of this deck, the outdoor living space borders a second swimming pool dedicated to guests with a transparent bottom, designed with a sliding cover that transforms it into an extended sunbathing area.
On the main deck there are also six cabins, five of which are guest cabins and a massage room.
The 62Steel Cloud 9 has been designed by Sanlorenzo’s in-house technical and style departments, with décor and interiors by Francesco Paszkowski and Margherita Casprini.
The main material, together with oak, is Jerusalem stone, which is used to cover walls, bathrooms and niches, as in the guest cabins.

“Creating the interior design for this 62-metre was an exciting process,” says Francesco Paszkowski. “Our long-standing collaboration with the shipyard and our knowledge of the owner, for whom we had already designed a 46-metre in the past, allowed us to move into uncharted territory and create interiors with a distinctly contemporary feel, in collaboration with Margherita Casprini.”Principle materials such as marble, stone and oak are combined with glass and leather, and made-in-Italy brand furniture coexists with custom furnishings designed by our studio.”
Three further units of the 62Steel are already under construction, with the second to be delivered in the autumn and the third scheduled for delivery in early 2023.
Earlier this month, Sanlorenzo released images of its first 57Steel superyacht, which is under construction at the Italian builder’s La Spezia shipyard. The five-deck, 56.7m superyacht is designed by Studio Zuccon International Project, and is an evolution of the 52Steel. The model is set to launch in 2022.
Sanlorenzo is represented in Asia by Simpson Marine.
