Design Studio Adam Voorhees has recently announced the contract and refit design for project Sapphire Knight, a 26 metre fast sailing yacht. Built largely in Kevlar and carbon, construction is now underway at the Seaway yard in Monfalcone, Italy and will include a new deck and house, transom extension, complete interior, as well as mast, boom and keel modifications.
Utilising a 25 meter racing yacht as the starting platform with naval architecture by Bruce Farr, the yacht boasts an aggressive yet easily handled sail plan and will be at home on the race course, the high seas, and the choicest cruising grounds.
The experienced owner's design brief called for a voluminous interior with full visibility from the large salon and fully equipped spaces to ensure casual luxury for family, friends, and on charter. The interior will be finished in a contemporary and comfortable style, complimenting the yacht’s clean lines and sleek profile. Accommodation on board include a large owners cabin forward, two en-suite guest cabins, and separated facilities including galley and two double en-suite crew cabins. Delivery is anticipated later this year.
