Heesen luxury yacht Project Sapphire sold and renamed ‘Book Ends’

Dutch shipyard Heesen has announced the sale of its 50m/164ft all-aluminium luxury yacht PROJECT SAPPHIRE, which will become the new yacht, BOOK ENDS for her Owners.

The owners are highly experienced yachting enthusiasts who recently sold their 2017-built 47m/154ft luxury yacht BOOK ENDS, which was also built by Heesen. The new BOOK ENDS offers cutting edge technology for a better, more comfortable and environmentally friendly cruising experience implementing cutting edge technology.

A pair of MTU 16V 4000M 65L engines produce a top speed of 23 knots, and the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units reduce NOx emissions for more environmentally friendly cruising. The hull has been optimised to reduce drag, and a shallow draft of only 2.15m/7ft makes PROJECT SAPPHIRE ideal for the Bahamas and Maldives.

The accommodation is designed for up to 12 guests across 5 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite on the main deck forward, and 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins on the lower deck. Cristiano Gatto and his team are currently working on further personalising the interiors for the Owners, bringing in a lighter and brighter colour scheme to the upholstery and flooring, plus carefully selected artwork and bespoke loose furniture inside and out.
