First Sanlorenzo SX88 in Asia Expected to Arrive in Singapore This Year

The first SX88 to have been bought by a customer in Asia has been launched at the Sanlorenzo Shipyard in Viareggio.

Currently cruising the Italian Riviera, the SX88 will arrive in Singapore later this year.

Presented to the world as a break through concept at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2017, the Sanlorenzo SX88 is a 27-metre cross-over motoryacht that offers wide open spaces and large glass windows.

As on a large superyacht, the only steering position is on the upper deck, the fly bridge, protected by a windshield that can be closed by side windows and when needed by glass panels. Thanks to this solution, the lack of a helm allows the fore area of the main deck to be totally free and can be arranged as an owner’s cabin or remain a wide open multi-functional space.

All the main deck is spread out flush on the same level and can be opened – according to the different layouts – from stern to bow, creating a true open space loft, a rarity on a 27m yacht. The aft area of the main deck is fully equipped and furnished with luxurious sofas, coffee tables and armchairs. Doors open fully to the aft cockpit to offer a lounge on the sea.

The level of the “beach club” area is five steps lower than the main deck and can accommodate a 15ft/ 4.5m tender, a Jet ski, Seabob, Jetlev Flyer, Wakeboard and Stand Up Paddle. The crane to move these watercrafts is elegantly hidden in the prolonged profile of the handrail, with no disturbance to the eye-catching SX88 outline.

Upon deploying the watercrafts, the wide stern area offers 30 sq. m of beach club space, shaded by parasols and furnished to enjoy life at the water’s edge.

The crew quarters is just forward of the engine room that, thanks to the Volvo IPS powerplants, is moved much astern compared to the position of traditional in-line transmissions.

Interior design of this SX88 has been executed by Sanlorenzo’s in-house design team and inspired by Greek Islands with white washed wood and oak flooring finished with accents of blue and cream. Furniture is by Flexform and Roda.

The layout features saloon and dining with the galley on main deck, master cabin, a double and two twin cabins below decks and a spacious flybridge with navigation station, dining and lounging areas.

Optional on this model is the combination of high power lithium batteries, new lighting technologies, energy management systems, efficient thermal insulation and window glass, meaning the SX88 can use all systems on board for 4 to 8 hours at “zero emissions”. Thanks to these eco-friendly features, Rina awarded SX88 with the Green Class certification.

The SX88 has sold 22 units to date. Building on the success of the SX88, the range has been extended with the SX76 (already delivered to Hong Kong) and the SX112 expected to launch in 2020.

Upon arriving in Singapore, the SX88 is expected to cruise around the Southeast Asia region and will officially premiere in Asia at the Singapore Yacht Show 2020.
