This motoryacht was conceived in-house stylists, led by designer Luca Santella, the developer of the Bluegame range. SX88’s exteriors also benefit from the creativity of Officina Italiana Design’s Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta. Piero Lissoni took care of the interior design for the first unit. The hull water lines were developed by Lou Codega. 

The motoryacht with carbon fibre superstructure has an open stern to fulfil different functions of garage, beach club and sport activity area.

 The superstructure is glassed and painted in dark shade to reduce the volume perception and to balance the superstructure and the windows.

The only steering position is the fly bridge on the upper deck, protected by a windshield that can be closed by side saver windows and by strata glass panels or by an easy operating rigid structure.

As a result, the fore area of the saloon on the main deck is free and can be arranged as the owner’s cabin or remains as a multi-functional open space. The whole main deck can be open from stern to bow.

The fore area of the main deck is fully equipped and furnished to offer a relaxing and functional living area with a double L-shaped sofas with coffee tables and an extended sunbathing surface, with the possibility to directly connect with the interior.

The level of the beach area is five steps lower than the main deck and can accommodate a 15ft tender, a jet ski and other toys. The crane to move these watercrafts is hidden in the profile of the handrail.

Cleared from the watercrafts, the wide beach area, extending 2ft over the water, offers 30sqm of beach club shaded by sunbrellas.
