Ideal for family vacations, the M/Y Ocean Sapphire, a 41m Rodriguez Cantieri Navaili, boasts up to 30 percent more exterior and interior space than any other yacht in her class as she cruises the great wide open seas.

Decorated in neutral tones complemented by plush furnishings, the interior decor is all about elegant comfort. Amid these luxurious spaces, the eyes are instantly drawn to amazing views onboard with walls of glass featured in most rooms, and open-air decks where sitting back and drinking in the surroundings is an activity in itself.

A myriad of luxurious interior features include the main saloon with a formal dining area that easily seats 10 guests, huge windows that wrap around beautifully placed furnishings in a living area shaped with social groupings carefully broken up into comfort zones offering panoramic views, and a master stateroom designed for the world traveler. Splashes of soothing hues evoke the open ocean with a warm color palette that remains constant as it spirals through the various decks of the yacht. Spacious communal areas shimmer with natural light, highlighting the pale woods, light surfaces and contemporary interior decor.

Natural teak decking extends from the saloon to the aft deck to provide a visual transition between the interior and exterior spaces. And entertainment abounds on a sundeck set with sun beds, a bar and gym equipment, while the upper saloon offers a “beach hut” feel and is equipped with a cappuccino bar, games station and an exterior deck ideal for alfresco dining.

The 131-foot superyacht, Ocean Sapphire, with its futuristic shape and power-packed 16-knot cruising speed, towers with four levels of deck that features four crew cabins and accommodations for 12 guests that includes a master stateroom. In addition, a remarkable lighting system takes guests from bright beach house to sultry lounge bar in seconds.

One of the most stylish and comfortable ways to enjoy the open seas is aboard the luxury yacht M/Y Ocean Sapphire that cruises comfortably with a dedicated crew of seven is an excellent charter yacht for luxury vacations.
