While most of the world can camouflage any post-Christmas bulges in layers of clothes and overcoats, the superyacht crowd has no such place to hide. For anyone whose lifestyle includes endless flights and high-powered jobs, life at sea needs to offer more than just a place to relax.

In this special well-being issue we showcase how best to use your superyacht to pursue your sport of choice, be that playing golf along America’s East Coast like Eddie Jordan, extreme sports or conducting your own well-being cruise taking in yoga retreats, panoramic treks and destination spas. It is staggering to see what facilities are now being offered on board, from basketball and tennis courts to zip wires and yoga studios. If all this talk of health is too much, flick to our marinas feature, which will help you find the best places to tie up and plan what to do once you’re there, looking fit and fabulous, inspired by our spring/summer evening wear fashion splash. Happy planning.

If the queues of people eager to get on board it at the Cannes Yachting Festival were the right measure, then the SX88 from Sanlorenzo was the star of that show. The Italian yard takes Cannes very seriously – it’s a big semi-custom player and that’s the big semi-custom show. So successful has Sanlorenzo been in that market segment that the familiar features of its SL and SD lines can be seen in marinas all over the world. So with such an embedded product line and faithful market, why suddenly take a punt on such a radical concept? In our feature, you’ll discover the simple answer: to attract younger buyers. The company has already sold 11 SX88s, which is itself pretty amazing, but the average age of the buyers is way below the mid-50s seen across the rest of the range. It’s not often we put a yacht this size on the cover, but we felt compelled to reward this bold attempt to grab a slice of the millennial, or near-millennial, market. Like Sam Fortescue writes in his feature: hats off.
