Superyacht Sapphire has been successfully sold to several individual owners with residence in Bangkok, Thailand, according to a SuperYacht Times source. The 2009-built yacht Sapphire will be based between Thailand, Maldives, Singapore and Indonesian Islands. She is ideal for private cruising in the area with her 24 knots deployment speed powered by MTU 16 V 4000 engines.
The Australian international crew will continue its successful cooperation under the management contract of Hanseatic Marine in Perth. The originally Dubai based royal yacht has been re-decorated to a more contemporary look and is now fully equipped with the newest toys. Currently based in Phuket, the 50.5-metre Sapphire is one of the largest yachts in the area and will keep cruising under the same name.
