SAFIRA has been recently launched and is a one of a kind, 'green' custom-built global explorer. SAFIRA is remarkably engineered with unsurpassed sea handling capability and state of the art equipment, and is the recipient of the 2014 Superyacht Award for Naval Architecture. Her many benefits include principal naval architecture by Sparkman & Stephens, reliable Caterpillar power, an ice strengthened steel hull, and Schottel Azipods drives. She is extremely safe & economical, and her Z drive’s save money on both fuel consumption and maintenance due to the elimination of rudders, propeller shafts & shaft seals. She has many conveniences including Dynamic Positioning & Zero-Speed stabilizers. Safira has already proven herself on her first round trip voyage that took her from Fort Lauderdale to Greenland and then back to Fort Lauderdale. She has both her ABS A1 Commercial Certificate and MCA Unrestricted endorsements. SAFIRA is a must see! She can take you safely & comfortably to places you have only dreamed of!

Power is delivered by Schottel Rudder propeller azipod drives - about 20 percent more efficient than conventional shafts. In addition, the Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines can run on 15 percent biodiesel. A split day tank—one for biofuel and one for diesel—allows the engineer to mix on board. On deck, the Dutch product Esthec replaces environmentally sensitive teak. The attractive composite decking material resembles wood but is ecologically sound both in manufacture and maintenance. It also cushions the boat deck, reducing sound transmission to the crew quarters beneath. LED lights throughout and good insulation reduce the electrical load and allow SAFIRA to carry smaller generators for saving fuel. DPS allows SAFIRA to avoid anchoring in environmentally delicate areas, such as over coral reefs.

Wanting to create a comfortable environment with the idea of long passages in mind, Michael David & Associates designed a spacious and light-filled interior with a large skylounge on the bridge deck and dining for 10 forward of the main salon on the main deck. SAFIRA has fantastic outdoor deck spaces with a bar and generous lounging area surrounding the Jacuzzi on the sundeck, al fresco aft deck dining on the bridge deck, and a further seating area on the main deck aft.

SAFIRA accommodates 10 guest in 5 staterooms with 1 full beam master cabin below decks amidships. Guests are accommodated in two twin and two double staterooms forward of the Owner’s stateroom all with en-suite bathrooms and all located on the lower deck. The gym is aft of the bridge and hosts a treadmill, weight bench, dumbbells, and a stationary bicycle.

The impressive boat deck area carries a 25-foot Hunt Harrier tender with a fuel efficient Yamaha Volvo outdrive that burns just nine gallons per hour at 30 knots. Also deployed via the a Doughdish sailing dinghy, a copy of a Herreshoff 12.5. The 12’ Nautica rescue boat, two paddleboards, two single kayaks and a double kayak are also all stowed here.
