SARAFSA is an 82m (269ft) motor yacht delivered by UK yard Devonport Yachts with naval architecture by Burness Corlett Three Quays and both interior and exterior designs entrusted to Winch Design. A yacht of extraordinary volume, with six guest decks all served by an elevator, a beam of 15m (49.2ft) and a GT of 3,179, she has only ever been used privately.
