With an interior design from outside the yachting world, the Sanlorenzo SX76 Lissoni version makes a statement.
Sanlorenzo launched its SX line of yachts with the SX88, a yacht meant to be a crossover (hence, the X) between a flybridge motoryacht and an explorer yacht. The builder partnered with renowned Italian interior designer Piero Lissoni for a special version of the yacht called, appropriately, the Lissoni version, which envisioned the interior as an open space with windows that reach nearly floor to ceiling — think loft living. He wanted to eliminate rigid separations between the interior spaces, and did.
Following quickly in the wake of the SX88 is the Sanlorenzo SX76, a 78-footer that makes the most of onboard space — it also has a Lissoni version — and gives buyers wide latitude to customize many aspects of their yacht, from the marble and wood to the furniture and handcrafted elements. Already-beautiful Italian styling is only enhanced by each owner’s vision for the yacht’s flow and personality.
The main cabin encompasses an aft salon, a mid-galley — which can be completely or partially enclosed or wide open (Lissoni version) — and a forward dining area that comes in three table configurations. In version A and B, traditional stairs lead to the flybridge; in the Lissoni version, a sweeping staircase leads up.
Other tweaks in the Lissoni version include triple-circle geometric coffee and end tables, twin barrel chairs, and a geometric multi-rectangle settee in the cockpit.
Belowdecks, Sanlorenzo SX76 owners can choose a four-stateroom layout or a more breezy two-stateroom design that features a second salon. In either case, the master is a private amidships suite that stretches across the beam. Up top, the flybridge features a second helm and a buyer’s choice of a small galley with a dining area or a more salon-like space. A large settee/sun lounge combo occupies a significant portion of the bow, offering another outdoor space to gather.
Where the swim platform would normally be is more of a lower cockpit. It’s a large, open deck that can hold a dinghy — a garage without a roof — and when the dinghy is in the water, the deck can become a teak beach for sun worshippers.
