The long, straight lines with plumb bow and minimalist exterior address this first criteria. The aesthetic is long and sleek but carries the raw, functional forms of trawlers and explorers.

The vast expanses of glass and overhanging wings on the salon deck flood the enormous central atrium with natural light. The area is immensely spacious and is decorated in a relaxed, comfortable fashion.

Addressing the final criteria is a long slender hullform with plumb bow and semi-bulbous bow sections, creating a fast hull with low resistance and dampened pitching moment. This is all driven by a hybrid diesel-electric propulsion system given an 8,000nm range at 18 knots. A number of external features have also been designed to minimize the threat of piracy, including minimal access points and lack of external stairways.

Project Sapphire superyacht has also been designed to use the Tim Gilding-designed Aperto 8.5m open yacht tender and Barrel-Back 8.3m superyacht tender designs.
