The SX line was presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival in 2017. Fifteen SX88s are sold to date, followed by 11 orders of the new SX76, which is expected to attend Cannes this year.
“The Sanlorenzo SX88 has been a sell-out success even before its launching at the Cannes Yachting Festival last year,” said Nick Stratton, Sanlorenzo Asia Sales Manager. “Due to quick demand from Europe, we have been eagerly waiting for the first SX88 to arrive in Asia, which is now confirmed for mid-2019.
“Prior to this, we will see the arrival of the all-new SX76 in Hong Kong early next year. The yacht is available for sale with interior design by Piero Lissoni and will be celebrated with a dedicated launch party. Launching at Cannes this year with so many orders already, this yacht is a great opportunity for an enthusiastic buyer."
A crossover between classic flybridge yachts and explorer yachts, the 27m SX88 has an open main deck that spreads from stern to bow. Its steering position – on the same deck – can be entirely enclosed and air-conditioned by the automatically operated side windows. Depending on the owner’s wish, a master suite can be placed instead.
The beach club, five steps lower than the main deck, can accommodate a 4.5m tender, a Jetski, Seabob, Jetlev Flyer, wakeboard, stand up paddleboard etc.
“The SX range appeals to both new owners and those looking for a more sophisticated upgrade from their existing yacht. We are seeing keen interest from owners of other brands wanting something different and a real explorer type yacht that also embodies the style and luxury of a typical Sanlorenzo yacht. The ability to cruise long distances is key for yachts based in Asia,” added Stratton.
