YN19850 Project Sapphire

50m Aluminium

Elegant, crisp and sporty with a reduced footprint

Sapphire is a fast-cruising yacht of below 500 GT and follows on from the successful Satori Class.
Our in-house team of naval architects created an optimised, low-drag hull design with a reduced transom depth. These refinements have led to efficiency gains of around 12 per cent, while a draft of just 2.15 metres makes Sapphire the perfect yacht for exploring shallow, turquoise waters. Her ultra-efficient hull shape is seamlessly complemented by two MTU 16V4000M65L ‘green ocean’ engines, fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units to reduce NOx emissions.

First impressions

Sapphire is unique yet elegant and represents the culmination of a ten-year programme of design development at Heesen. The superstructure’s optical focus overlays the yacht’s actual centre of gravity, which explains why she seems so well aesthetically balanced.

Step aboard

Italian designer Cristiano Gatto has created a refined and elegant interior design. Twelve guests are luxuriously accommodated in four spacious suites on the lower deck, and a master stateroom forward on the main deck.
