SAPHIRE was chosen European Yacht Of The Year because she keeps all her promises. This award is the most renowned one in Europe and usually given to well established yards. With Saphire as a first project we launched a boat which gained the European Yacht Of The Year award in the first go, which is very rare and shows how well thought through the project was from the very beginning. There are many sports yachts for sale but only very few that combine family sailing and racing in the same perfect manner. The judges of the European Yacht Of The Year award were impressed by her ability to combine both – sailing save with the family and still having the potential to win prestigious races against much bigger boats. If you see sport yachts for sale also check if these boats are for multi purposes like Saphire. Think of your target group when selling the boat again later on. Don’t restrict yourself to only pure sport boats if you have an intention to use her also for leisure sailing. Safety is one of the most important features when you don’t race with a professional team but with your family. To win the European Yacht Of The Year award you need much more than just a fast sport yacht but you need a boat that is able to fulfil many more needs. There are many sport yachts or sport boats for sale in the market. Some are for one design racing only and others for racing under rating systems. Check carefully what your needs are and if you want to limit yourself to racing only.
