    The hull and superstructure for new build vessel Project "SAPPHIRE" joined on January 16th marking a major milestone in the yacht's construction. Her ultra-efficient hull shape is perfectly complemented by two MTU 16V4000M65L ‘green oceanic’ engines, fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units to reduce NOx emissions. Particulate filters on the generators augment the environmental package, while a pair of interceptors will guarantee optimal dynamic trim at high speeds. With a top speed of 23-knots and a range of 3,100 nautical miles at 11-knots, SAPPHIRE will be ideal for both island hopping and longer passages. Frank Laupman of Omega Architects is on the exterior design while Cristiano Gatto is finessing the interior design. June, 2022 is the completion timeframe for Project SAPPHIRE.

    Along with that completion date, she has recently been purchased and the spec build now has an owner. Word is she will become the new "Book Ends" which suggests the owner stepped-up from their 47-meter previous Heesen.
