The 82m (269ft) SARAFSA has a steel hull and aluminium superstructure constructed to Lloyd’s classification and delivered by British shipyard Devonport Yachts in 2008. Inside and out she is the single vision of Winch Design and her naval architecture is by Burness Corlett Three Quays.
This is a yacht of extraordinary volume, with five guest decks all served by an elevator, a beam of 15m (49.2ft) and an interior volume of 3,179GT. Only ever used privately, SARAFSA represents a rare opportunity to own a large northern European yacht at a fraction of the replacement cost at a time when shipyards have wait times of several years.
The sun deck is a wellness centre with hammam, gym, spa pool and jacuzzi beneath a retractable roof and the stairwell atrium has an etched glass skylight. There is a sit-up bar and the extensive sun deck area aft serves two additional purposes: as stowage for tenders on passage and as a helipad.
Below is a dedicated owner's deck with an observation lounge forward featuring several seating areas including outside seating. The owner's suite aft has its own lobby, bathroom with bath, very large walk-in wardrobe, changing room and spacious private terrace aft. There is also a guest cabin forward with walk-in wardrobe, bathroom and another staff/security double cabin to port.
Entertainment is the theme on the bridge deck. There is an 11-seat cinema opposite the owner's private study. Aft is a large informal lounge with a fully equipped bar and a formal dining room for 16 guests aft with glass screens that create a winter garden area or an open dining area. Outside is a sun lounge with bar and buffet positions and the bridge deck also has a VIP suite forward to starboard.
The main deck has three guest suites forward and a convertible suite-sized guest lounge with en suite shower room completing accommodation for 14 guests in seven suites. There is a second formal dining room for 14 guests, a hair salon, a more formal lounge aft and beyond an ante room is the main deck aft with steps leading down to an extensive swim platform. The main deck also has two shell doors concealing her 9m (29.5ft) and 8m (26.2ft) tenders.
Her lower deck has an additional 10 staff (or junior guest) cabins for 14 guests or staff and SARAFSA also sleeps 23 crew. A teak guest boarding terrace and beach club area next to the elevator lobby. In the lazarette aft is stowage for a host of watertoys, a dive locker and a compact car.
Twin 2,682hp MTU diesel engines give her a top speed of 16 knots and a transoceanic range of 6,000nm at her cruising speed of 13 knots. Zero speed stabilisers provide exceptional comfort at anchor.
Following a substantial price reduction of EUR 10,000,000 on 4 October 2022, SARAFSA is now asking EUR 65,000,000 and she is currently lying in Monaco, where she will stay over winter, and we would be delighted to arrange an inspection. This yacht has a very motivated seller and all genuine offers will be seriously considered. Please contact your Burgess broker to find out more.
