Sanlorenzo is hosting the US debut of its SD96 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 28-November 1. The 28m model is the entry-level model for the Italian builder’s semi-displacement range.

Sanlorenzo’s display in Florida also includes include the SL86 from the builder’s range of planing yachts and the SX76 and SX88, the first two models of the SX crossover line launched in 2017 by Sanlorenzo.

The SX88 is among four Sanlorenzo models at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

Massimo Perotti, Executive Chairman of Sanlorenzo, said: “The SX crossover line is the response to the epochal crisis in the world of yachting from 2009 to 2014. As always in the history of humankind, moments of crisis generate new ideas. While prior to 2008 many yachtsmen bought boats simply to demonstrate their success and power, as ways to show off rather than to enjoy the time spent at sea, we understood that after the crisis only the true lovers of yachting would remain, so we began to think about what they would desire.

“The concept of the SX line was thus developed, which privileges the use of the yacht on open sea. The innovative steering position on the flybridge, which can be entirely closed and air-conditioned, leaves a free main deck to create a true loft facing the sea, or alternatively a more intimate owner’s suite, with a large beach area astern, which can also accommodate large watercrafts for your sea exploration.”
