The SX88 is a new 27m crossover motor yacht presented in September, with several units already sold before her official premiere.

Designed by Piero Lissoni and the Officina Italiana Design, she features a flybridge protected by a windshield that can be closed by side saver windows and when needed by glass panels or a rigid structure. The lack of a helm allows the fore area of the main deck to be arranged as an Owner’s cabin or remain a wide open multi-functional space.

The SX88 offers four (or five as an option) double cabins. Fitted with Volvo IPS 1200 powerplants, she can reach a maximum speed of 23 knots.

Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo APAC Manager, will be on hand to present new projects and future arrivals for the upcoming season.

Other Simpson yacht displays include Monte Carlo Yachts 70 and 65, Monte Carlo 6, Beneteau Oceanis 45 and Gran Turismo 40, Lagoon 52 and 42, and Viking 92EB.

Aside from the showcases, the dealer will also host two events – Gran Turismo Sparkling Sundowner on January 5 and Monte Carlo Yachts Mediterranean Fiesta on January 6 – for owners and guests.
