The second 52Steel superyacht from Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo, now named KD, has been delivered to her owners. Previously launched at the Italian shipyard facility in La Spezia in March, the 52-metre superyacht was designed by Officina Italiana Design.

The same area can also be converted into a floodable garage to accommodate her owner’s tender as the floor of the beach area lifts up to make space to store tenders up to 8 metres.

KD accommodates up to 12 guests across five cabins, including a master suite, two double and two twin cabins. She also accommodates a crew of nine. She is powered by a pair of 1,900hp MTU Caterpillar 12V4000M63 diesel engines, with a top speed of 18 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots.
