Sanlorenzo once again enters with grace and determination in the worldwide yachting stage with a highly innovative proposal, full of original and clever, rational and practical features, but always defined by an unmistakable style, declined on sobriety, volume and mass balance, assuring to the latest born the traditional Sanlorenzo elegance, by the time an essential symbol and immediate trade mark of the yard.
SX88 is the name of the new 27m motoryacht, first model of a full range that will vary in dimensions. The SX88 model has been officially presented on September 11th on the occasion of the Cannes Yachting festival 2017. The SX88 yacht will also feature at the Genoa Boat Show from 21 to 26 September.
SX88 is a product containing different “Firsts” by Sanlorenzo, a Copernican revolution based on some unique and distinguished keys that make the yacht original and innovative:
- Grp hull and carbon fibre superstructure
- Semi-displacement hull tested in the Wageningen (Holland) tank test to optimize the performances in the different speed range, up to 23 knots
- Open stern to fulfil the different functions of garage, beach club, and sport activity area
- Two main deck layouts: open space or Owner’s cabin
- One steering position on fly bridge, that can be closed and air-conditioned
- Advanced building process made on the open hull
- Highest environment sustainability attention thanks to the use of low impact process
Sanlorenzo, the most iconic Italian shipyard, takes a new step forward alongside some of the most prestigious Italian architects and designers, choosing Piero Lissoni for the interior design of the first yacht from the new crossover line SX88.
A leader in its own field, over the years Sanlorenzo has built a very precise, coherent model, bringing the concepts of architecture and design literally on board, thanks to Patron Massimo Perotti’s intuition, firstly by collaborating with Dordoni Architetti and subsequently with Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel for the yachts’ interior designs.
Setting out to escape from the values of an extremely traditional world, Sanlorenzo thus founded a brand new way to conceive boat design: the work of these designers made it possible to introduce a language and some aesthetic codes from different fields into the world of yachts for the first time, a concept of home living interpreted according to one’s experience and style.
This choice allowed to lay the foundations for the collaboration with Piero Lissoni, thanks to the great stylistic and design affinity which immediately emerged between the designer and the company:
“The timeless elegance of Sanlorenzo yachts and their simple language has found an ideal interpreter in Piero Lissoni”. Massimo Perotti, Chairman/CEO at Sanlorenzo.
The project by Piero Lissoni for the interiors of the new yacht SX88 comes from a very simple idea: designing an open space boat.
By using a totally innovative solution, Piero Lissoni re-interprets the concept of space inside the boat, which develops in a single, continuous setting from stern to bow, with an open kitchen, beside the dining room, followed by a living area with no interruptions between interiors and exteriors, thanks to wide glass walls facing the sea: “I keep picturing boats, even very large ones, as if they were lofts, that is very open, highly liveable spaces, which make it possible to be in contact with what’s around us”. Piero Lissoni. A “social” boat which offers a new way to live life on board.
Piero Lissoni’s stylistic sign also emerges in the choice of furniture, which is a triumph of contamination: design ideas, icons of great masters, objects from the East and objects trouvés mix up to provide the setting with a domestic flavour. A key factor was the counter-current decision to not adapt furniture to space but to arrange it freely as in a home setting.
Yacht SX88 was an innovative project, which was favoured by a strong harmony and an intense, constant dialogue between Piero Lissoni and Sanlorenzo shipyards which has once again revolutionised the traditional standards of navigation.
The interior design of yacht SX88 was designed by Piero Lissoni alongside David Lopez, Stefano Castelli, and Marco Gottardi. The exterior lines are by Officina Italiana Design.
