SAPPHIRE (previously RED SAPPHIRE) was built by Trinity Yachts and launched in 2009. She is a proven world class motor yacht that has spent the past several years exploring remote areas of southeast Asia. In 2019 she received a major 10-year refit and in 2020/2021 she received new engines and generators.  A full list of the work is in the detailed specifications and available upon request.
SAPPHIRE can sleep up to 20 guests in 7 flexible staterooms. The Owners’ suite is located on the bridge deck facing aft with sliding glass doors onto the bridge deck aft. The suite features an ensuite with a large bathtub and a walk-in closet. One double cabin can be found on the bridge deck and the second can be found on the main deck. Below deck you will find two triple cabins, each with a queen and twin bed, and both with an ensuite featuring a tub. Further forward are two twin cabins, each with their own pullman berths and an ensuite bathroom with a shower.
There is ample outdoor space for entertaining, with a large dining table on the main deck, versatile seating and lounging on the bridge deck, and more seating on the Portuguese bridge--perfect for sun downers. The sun deck is expansive with a jacuzzi, bar area, lounging areas, and an al fresco dining area that is perfect for relaxing with friends and family.
SAPPHIRE boasts options for both indoor and outdoor dining, with an elegant dining table in the salon that seats up to 12 guests. The main salon also features a bar, comfortable seating with a hidden TV, and beautiful oversized windows for natural light.  Forward of the salon is a recreational room, which is perfect as an entertainment space for kids that can easily be converted to a VIP cabin.
Exceptionally comfortable, SAPPHIRE is equipped with Quantum Zero-Speed stabilizers and features a pair of 3,650HP MTU engines that give her a top speed of 23 knots and a more economical cruising speed of 15 knots.
