Discovery 67, SAPPHIRE II is the most highly specified in her class to launch. She boasts custom touches, including teak floorboards and interior fit-out and furnishings, all designed by the Ken Frevoikh design office. She was conceived and built for the World ARC, which she completed happily and without any issues. She is now on her second circumnavigation.
She has been meticulously maintained, regardless of cost, and regularly upgraded. She is the second Discovery for her owners. Around £500,000 was spent on the extras inventory to equip her to the highest standards in all respects. She is the perfect platform for bluewater cruising in utmost comfort and great style.
SAPPHIRE II is a luxurious yacht that offers a pleasurable sailing experience. As our second Discovery, she is exceptionally safe, stable, and sea-kindly. Capable of covering 200+ nm runs day after day on ocean passages, she can also capture the attention of admirers in any marina. In addition to her impressive sailing attributes, which enable two people to sail her with ease, she has been outfitted with nearly every imaginable creature comfort. Truly, SAPPHIRE II is a well-appointed home on the sea. After more than 10 years of sailing, she performs better than ever!
We have sailed her to Sweden and Norway, including the Lofoten Islands. She has completed several Biscay Crossings and crossed the Atlantic and Pacific – all in great comfort and style. We have undertaken significant upgrades during our ownership, with the most recent being a major refit in New Zealand in 2022.
