SAPHIRE will launch a new CRUISING version of the well known 27ft sailboat this summer. With this new model SAPHIRE follows the trend to funboats for reasonable prices to please a wide range of sailors. The focus was set on a nice and well finished interior and an easy and simple handling of the boat while sailing. The actual version, which addresses to more ambitious sailors, shall be renamed into SAPHIRE SPORT and still feature all the technical highlights of a sport boat such as vacuum sandwich infusion technology, carbon mast and a very complete set of deck equipment.
The following features shall be implemented into the new SAPHIRE CRUISE:

  • Hull and deck in wet layup with Vinylester resin and PVC sandwich core
  • Aluminium mast with backstay
  • Classical sail plan with main and jib in Dacron included in the base price
  • Endless jib furler, single point lifting system, fixe vang included in the base price
  • Complete deck equipment and bowsprit system included in the base price
  • Interior with two fixe berth in the bow and two central berth including mattresses
  • Big storage space under the cockpit floor
  • Lifting keel in casted iron with T-bulb
  • CE B category
  • High gloss ceiling cover
  • Laminated floorboards and wooden table in the interior
  • Space for ice box, water supply, toilet, batteries, electric panel etc.
  • Space for outboard engine (fuel, electric) at the transom
  • Space for additional winches in the cockpit for single handed sailing

SAPHIRE CRUISE comes with a complete equipment not only below deck but especially on deck to satisfy the needs of sporty cruising sailors, who also like to plane here and there with their boat and at the same time want to sail save with their family in rough offshore conditions. Also, SAPHIRE CRUISE will be equipped with a retractable keel and can be launched directly from a ramp (0.5m depth). Or you have a flat water mooring slot and need a reduced draft (1.00m draft). In both cases you can just add the relevant lifting module. Of course the boat is fully trailerable.
The price for the ready to sail SAPHIRE CRUISE will be EUR 42‘000 excl. VAT ex factory Poland.
