The Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo announced today it has completed the sale of a 64m project. Already under construction at the shipyard's new facility in La Spezia, the project is going to be the largest superyacht ever built by the yard. This new production site has been assigned to accommodate the construction of Sanlorenzo's developing range of 40-80m metal-hull superyachts.
The vessel can be equipped with either two CAT 3516C or two MTU 16V 4000 M63 engines. It will have six or seven guest cabins depending on the current owner's preferences and will be able to reach a maximum speed of 17 knots.
