The radically styled Ocean Sapphire is the work of design studio Foster + Partners and built by Rodriquez Yachts in Italy in 2011. Ocean Sapphire forms part of three identical superyachts launched by fractional ownership company YachtPlus, including Ocean Emerald and Ocean Pearl, as part of their Signature 40 Series.
The interior of the vessel was created to be extremely light and spacious, with continuous window sections and external balconies scattered across the yacht to enhance the feeling of freedom and spaciousness. Her unique fish-like design has been developed to offer over 30% more exterior and interior space than other yachts in her category.
Ocean Sapphire offers accommodation for her 12 guests over 5 staterooms and has an interior by Foster + Partners that has been designed with family life and child-friendliness in mind.
Floating Life acted on behalf of the seller while Bernard Gallay Yacht Brokerage represented the buyer. Ocean Sapphire was listed at an asking price of EUR 4,180,000.
