Italian designers Marco Ferrari & Alberto Franchi are proud to unveil the new 52m sloop concept BLUE SAPPHIRE. This majestic sailing superyacht concept has been specially created for the Perini Navi Award, organized by Comitato Leonardo to celebrate the excellence of Italian design.
This beautiful 52m performance cruiser features a plumb bow and a modern stern with generous outside areas for owner and guests entertainment. The forward main deck hosts a large garage with the main tender of 6 metres, which can be easily transformed into a second cockpit. The stern is fitted with a jacuzzi boasting a waterfall surrounded by a double-stair connecting the main deck to the beach club, while underway the water is pumped out and the stern platform is closed.
The deckhouse features a modern profile with wide skylights to maximize the interior lighting. Indoors, there is an amazing main salon with a glass sliding door, as well as a lounge and dining area and a cinema forward in a second lounge area.
Luxury yacht BLUE SAPPHIRE can comfortably sleep 10 guests across four double guest cabins, with the possibility to switch a cabin into a gym, plus an amazingly generous owner?s suite with two skylights, a studio, lounge area, as well as two bathrooms. Forward on the lower deck, there are five crew cabins for 8 crew members, including the captain?s cabin and his office, plus a crew mess, a galley and a laundry. Aft on the lower deck, a second garage can be found, housing the service tender of 4,5 metres, with a great range of water toys.
