Until Laurent Giles’s concept of the motor sailer, such vessels had compromised on motoring or sailing; typically with poor manoeuvrability, poor sailing qualities other than in strong winds so usually requiring engine-on when under sail. It was Laurent Giles who achieved the perfect blend of racing yacht hull profile with the motor vessel superstructure – notably with a raised bridge. Well provided with power when the need arises, STAR SAPPHIRE moreover carries 2,000 sq ft of sail to a very efficient design. In practice she offers the stability and comfort of a sailing boat yet the predictability of schedule under engine. Following a substantial refit 2005 to 2006 under the guidance of her meticulous owner, this yacht is absolutely optimised for Mediterranean cruising – sometimes the lack of wind there and a boat like this can make you a passionate motor sailor.
