Sanlorenzo Reveals New Composite Megayacht Crossover Line: Dynamic design and flexible layout characterizes the SX88 megayacht, the first model in the new GRP Series from Sanlorenzo. The shipbuilder characterizes the concept as a “Copernican revolution” based on several features, including the line’s semi-displacement hull form that optimizes speed to 23 knots. Three IPS 1050 Volvo 800 hp engines will power the 27m vessel, giving it a range of 1,000nm at 12 knots.
Dynamic exterior design that include angular lines and a forward leaning windscreen at the main deck level by Mauro Micheli of Officina Italiana Design will appeal to younger owners. Sanlorenzo has contracted with the Bergamo-based studio to deign six models over three years. The new SX range integrated the characteristics of the brands SL76 and SL86 into a new and exciting deign language.
The open transom brings guests into closer contact with the water, while a 18.5qm beach platform can store tenders and toys. A crane is integrated into the portside hull, while a passarelle doubles as a swim ladder.
With the helm on the fly deck, the main deck has unique layout options. Traditional layout has the owner’s suite forward with four guest cabins on the lower deck. A second option has the owners’ suite and four guest cabins below deck. The galley and open-living space is on the main deck with this layout, with direct access through the interior from the aft cockpit and foredeck lounge. Piero Lissoni is responsible for the interior layout and design.
Environmental issues are addressed throughout, with LED lighting, bio resins and core materials, top-rated appliances, formaldehyde-free furniture and FSC certified woods. High power lithium batteries and efficient thermal insulation allows the SX88 to use all hotel service for four to eight hours with zero emissions.
Eight units have already been sold with prices starting at €5.4 million. The first SX 88 will appear at the 2017 Cannes Yachting Festival. The SX72 will follow in 2018 and the SX104 in 2019.
