“A great deal of attention was lavished on the lighting design. It is used to emphasize shapes. SAPPHIRE’s detailed lighting compositions and formations really have no equal.”Frank Neubelt, Designer
This superyacht is everything that makes a true sapphire supremely desirable – exquisite quality and everlasting beauty.
The biggest challenge …
… in her construction was probably the self-imposed demand to create another sparkling jewel. Just like her multi-award-winning predecessors, SAPPHIRE also has a design that is detailed down to the last part.
Take for example the sophisticated lighting system that ensures that the 74 m long superyacht sparkles even at night. Numerous visible and invisible spot and LED lights were installed, controlled by a specially designed BUS-system.
And it continues below deck.
Floor-length windows flood the rooms with natural light. Indirect light provides an unobtrusive atmosphere in the evening, tailored to the functional clarity of the interior. Spots can set the scene and from time to time highlight special accessories, furniture or even shapes. The elaborate insulation ensures that neither engine nor other background noises can disturb the atmosphere.
The naval architects placed particular importance …
… on efficient performance. To improve fuel consumption on SAPPHIRE NOBISKRUG developed a construction method that adds aesthetically pleasing die-cast parts made from composite materials to her extremely solid steel hull and steel superstructure.
