Ferrari & Franchi is one collaboration you won’t be forgetting any time soon. The result of their joint effort is this gorgeous 52-meter performance cruiser ready for the occasional harbor race and called Blue Sapphire.

Designed for the Perini Navi Award, the sleek vessel has been outfitted with a plumb bow and a modern stern, featuring extensive outside areas for the owner and guests. The project itself celebrates the excellence of pure Italian design, with Macro Ferrari and Alberto Franchi being the brilliant minds behind this lovely yacht.

The Blue Sapphire also features a clean forward main deck, while the stern includes a Jacuzzi with a waterfall. There’s also a beach club, while the slim deckhouse, with wide skylights, benefits from the best of interior lighting.

Inside, Blue Sapphire comes with a spacious main dining room, which will accommodate up to ten passengers and connects to the main salon via glass sliding doors. Through them, passengers arrive at the lounge, which shows off a cinema display.

The vessel also features four double guest cabins, with the possibility to switch a cabin into a gym, along with a 42-sqm owner’s suite. The latter comes with two skylights, a studio and two bathrooms. On the front lower deck you’ll find five cabins, which accommodate the eight crew members, including a space for the captain.

Passengers may also enjoy a second garage, which can host tenders of up to 4.5 meters long. Furthermore, Ferrari & Franchi added a carbon fiber sloop rig for the 64.5 meter tall mast, as well as a hybrid propulsion system that allows the yacht to brag about reduced noise and fuel consumption.
