The Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo has designed the predator you see before you for a wealthy Russian client. Called the Scorpion, this is the eighth vessel in the shipyard’s 46Steel line, benefiting from a stunning steel hull and aluminium superstructure.
The yacht was also lucky enough to feature naval architecture by the in-house team at Sanlorenzo, whilst her exterior design was the responsibility of Francesco Paszkowski. Tiziana Vercellesi imagined the incredible interiors, while collaborating with the owner throughout the project.
As such, an Art Deco style fusion was chosen inside, using contemporary elements complemented by Art Deco furniture and pieces of art. Five spacious staterooms, including a large master suite on the main deck and two double cabins and two twin cabins on the lower deck, await passengers to enjoy their accommodations.
The master’s suite was imagined to show off white, silver and lilac colors while natural light enhanced said visual sensations. The owner’s massive bathroom is both sophisticated and stylish, with a large bathtub and his and hers sinks allowing for more spoiling.
Incidentally, guest accommodations include mosaics made specifically for this yacht by a Moscow-based artist, while the crew of nine is also accommodated in more than decent conditions.
The Sanlorenzo Scorpion brings craftsmanship, innovation, comfort, enjoyment, distinctive style and incredible beauty to the table, so to speak. The main salon is bright and welcoming, symbolizing the strive for perfection, while the dark, wooden flooring, which contrasts with the light upholstery and colored decorative pieces, reminds us that beauty is part of said concept.
The dining area is one of the brightest spaces on the vessel, with a wonderful round glass table surrounded by elegant turquoise dining chairs that’s able to accommodate up to ten passengers. Other amenities on board worth mentioning include a fully equipped gym and sauna, and the spacious sun deck has been fitted with a large Jacuzzi, a spacious al fresco dining area as well as a bar.
The vessel’s garage houses an impressive seven-meter tender, with an additional garage at the bow meant to host a wide range of water toys. Scorpion is powered by two CAT 3512C DITA engines, allowing for a top speed of 17 knots and a cruising speed of 15. With a transoceanic range of 3,500 nm, the owner and guests are free to enjoy long cruises while benefiting from complete self-sufficiency.
