Sanlorenzo SX88 yacht tour: Inside a sensational €6.8m Italian superyacht

At the recent Southampton Boat Show, MBY editor Hugo Andreae took the chance to look inside the Sanlorenzo SX88 a voluminous yacht, which was making its UK debut.

As the biggest boat at the 2021 Southampton Boat Show, the Sanlorenzo SX88 dominated the outer pontoon of Mayflower park and, frankly, the Starship Enterprise itself would look less incongruous if it were perched in the same spot.

This model was actually launched back in 2017 as the flagship of the range before the SSX112 arrived and stole that mantle, but the SX88’s rakish design still drops jaws wherever it goes.

This particular Sanlorenzo SX88 will do so more than others, given that its home berth will be in the Solent (Lymington, to be precise).

Sanlorenzo pitches the SX88 as a modern crossover between a mini explorer yacht and traditional flybridge, one key attraction being that the top deck can be fully enclosed to shield guests from the elements, whether that’s oppressive Mediterranean heat or persistent British drizzle.

The top deck is where you find the helm, leaving the forward end of the main deck free to become extra internal living space, but up top there is also space to relax on the half deck terrace which can be setup as a lounging or dining area.

In fact, there is a lot of room for manoeuvre when it comes to the layout of all three decks but another key feature of the Sanlorenzo SX88 is the design of the aft deck.

Here, there is space to stow a mini flotilla of water toys – the Sanlorenzo website shows one with a Williams jet tender and two jet skis lashed to the deck – which can be deployed by a neatly integrated crane to leave a 30 square metre beach club in prime position right on the waterline.

She’s a big boat to handle but is fitted with triple Volvo Penta IPS1050 (800hp), which means joystick control and a top speed of 23 knots.

Tried and tested: NUDE Ahoy non-slip glassware

Tried and tested: NUDE Ahoy non-slip glassware

While this might look like just another drinking glass, it's not – for the Turkish creators of NUDE glassware have incorporated a non-slip base into their NUDE tumblers which, they claim, makes them suitable for use at sea.

Having been brought up on a strict diet of plastic and Melamine boating crockery, we were sceptical as to just how safe these glasses would be on board. So we decided to try the NUDE Ahoy tumbler for ourselves.

NUDE’s non-slip secret lies down below, where an all-but-invisible band of grippy silicone has been incorporated into the tumbler’s base. It certainly holds fast on the level, and gentle tilting of our table demonstrated its resistance to movement too.

At sea, the glasses performed well on a fine, calm-ish day, coping with the swell and movement of the waves we encountered without any issues.

To determine the limits of this sticky customer, we decided to run a definitive tilt test and a comparison with a similar but non-non-slip tumbler – the outcome of which you can see in our video.

In other respects, the NUDE Ahoy tumbler compares favourably to other glasses. It’s heavy, fits well in the hand and its attractive appearance would grace any table.

Despite the impressive performance, we still have reservations about using a glass tumbler at sea, where accidents can and do happen when you’re least expecting them.

Take for example a typical day at anchor in the Solent, where even on the calmest of days violent swells and choppy wave patterns can occur suddenly and without warning – regulars at popular spots such as Osborne Bay will know exactly what we mean.

We fear that no matter how grippy the tumbler, they would likely end up scattered like everything else on the table. And while these substantial glasses might well be capable of withstanding a knock or two, we’d be hesitant to risk it.

Price: €35 for a set of four (inc. tax)
