The 61.5m (201.7ft) motor yacht CLOUD 9 was delivered in 2021 by Italian shipyard Sanlorenzo with stylish contemporary interiors by Francesco Paszkowski and sleek, dynamic exteriors by the yard’s in-house team.
The top deck has the bridge forward and full walkaround decks lead guests to the lounge, sit-up bar and sun lounging area aft. Stainless steel and glass guardrails deliver exceptional views with a sense of infinite openness and this deck space can also serve as an al fresco dining option. An elevator serves main to bridge decks.
The upper deck is also the owner’s private deck. The island double berth is forward, enjoying 180 degree views through full height windows and sliding glass doors forward open onto a private terrace forward featuring a pool with swim jets and sunpads. The terrace is a large versatile space that can be used for gym equipment, entertainment or relaxation. The foredeck also serves as a touch and go helipad. The owner’s suite also includes his and hers bathrooms, a study and a walk in dressing room. Aft of the owner’s lobby is a sky lounge with large TV screen for cinema nights and full height windows deliver excellent views. Sliding glass doors open onto an aft deck with open air dining and a bar shaded by the overhang and there is a sun lounge aft.
The main deck aft features a second large pool with sliding covers that can turn it into a large sunpad. Steps lead down to the swim platform and beach club and sliding doors forward lead into the main saloon styled with relaxing earth tones and again with abundant natural light through full height windows. Forward of a formal dining area, the main guest lobby leads through to the guest accommodation: two double cabins and three convertible cabins, and there is also a massage room that converts into a staff cabin.
The lower deck aft is one of the stars of this yacht’s show: a beach club open on three sides with a large swim platform aft and sea terraces port and starboard. Inside is a wellness area with steam shower and hammam, a dayhead, gym with sea views and a lounge and bar area.
Twin MTU engines give her a top speed of 16.5 knots and a transatlantic range of 5,000nm at 12.5 knots. Zero speed stabilisers ensure comfort both underway and at anchor.
