Saphire 27

We talked already about this boat but after seeing its very good comparative sailing performance on the tests from the European boat of the year I think the boat deserves revisit.

The objectives of the builder where attained: this is a boat that can compete at high level on a regatta and a daysailer for the family. the Saphire 27 is easily transported. An interesting sailboat no doubt with a very attractive price.

SAPHIRE addresses to ambitious sailors who like to practice their sport with family and friends. They love high speed, pure sailing and racing but at the same time they want to use the boat for leisure and fun. People, who decide today to spend a weekend on another lake tomorrow with their family. Slip and trail without a crane! Easy and uncomplicated! People, who don’t want to spend all their money on one hobby only. People, who are young and ambitious in their spirit. They want to be among the winners on the sunny side of life. They want to enjoy. They want to share their passion. They want to race!...

PRADA Luna Rossa’s designer, Claudio Maletto and his team developed the most advanced one design production sailboat on the market!...

You don’t need a crane to launch SAPHIRE! The lifting keel with an easy and light to set carbon rig makes you free and independent. Launch the boat directly from the trailer and set the mast autonomously....

You don’t see it, you don’t hear it but it’s there! You can buy an electrical Torqueedo Outboard engine as an option which would be fully integrated below the cockpit with a remote control....

SAPHIRE is sold directly on boat shows and on the web to offer you the very best price! Direct delivery to your home address. The boat is so simple, that you can do your first setup easily. This allows us to offer you the best price – performance ratio in the market. You have the opportunity to deliver the boat through a yard and we will take care that you get the “delivery package” from your yard.

Saphire Boats - Design it!

and in fact by 50 000 euros this boat offers a lot if compared for instance with a Jboat from the same size, much more expensive and less polivalent.
