Sanlorenzo Yachts UK & Ireland announced the sale of the first Sanlorenzo SX88 to be based in the United Kingdom.

First launched in 2017, the 26.70m SX88 is an extremely popular model for the Sanlorenzo shipyard, with over 30 of the yachts already sold.

Nick Hatfield, sales manager for Sanlorenzo UK, said, “The first U.K.-based Sanlorenzo SX88 has now arrived here where she will undergo her pre-delivery inspection before being handed over to her new owners, ready for a summer of cruising the south coast of the U.K. from her home berth in Lymington.”

The SX88 offers an expansive saloon with large floor to ceiling windows affording panoramic views and minimizing the division between the interior and exterior of the yacht. A feature unique to the SX88 is the removal of a helm station from the main deck, which allows an owner the space and flexibility to choose from a number of different layouts.

On the flybridge, the helm position can be entirely enclosed and air-conditioned with automatically operated side windows, leaving the vast main deck free from stern to bow – an exclusive loft which is suitable for navigating in all weather conditions.

The transom design on this 27-meter yacht allows for the storage of multiple water toys and a tender up to 4.5 meters. When the toys are launched using the integrated crane, the area converts into a spacious 30m2 beach club, complete with hydraulic swim platform.

Up to eight guests can be accommodated in the four-cabin lower deck layout, which is divided into an owner’s cabin, a forward VIP cabin and two twin guest cabins.

Powered by three Volvo IPS1050-800HP, the SX88 has a fast-cruising speed of 18-20 knots, with a maximum speed of 23 knots.
