A seamless melding of a classic motoryacht and an explorer vessel, the SX88 is one of the six new models Sanlorenzo commissioned from Officina Italiana Design.
The studio crafted the exterior lines of this particular project while Piero Lissoni styled in the interiors which have an open-plan, loft-like feel with an open galley, dining zone and saloon area in addition to the cabins on the lower deck. The steering position is on its own on the upper deck.
The 27-metre ushers in much that is new and innovative, not least the advanced construction process and new generation materials (a fibreglass hull and carbon-fibre superstructure) used in its build. The same applies to its engine set-up which delivers blistering performance. The design too is unusual and contemporary, characterised by a high prow that is very seaworthy indeed as well as a profile that tapers towards the stern, lending the yacht a very sleek, streamlined look.
Other captivating features are the SX88’s very generous al fresco deck areas and enormous windows which blur the division between interior and exterior.
