Horacio Bozzo Design was tasked with drawing the exterior lines and arranging the interior layout of Project Zafiro. He has strived to produce a design that is both contemporary and timeless for the owner. “Essential and pure lines are the soul of this project, where the demand of design is to embrace functionality,” Bozzo explained in a statement.
One of the highlights of Project Zafiro is her spacious flybridge, which stretches across 115 square metres and features a 4 metre pool and plenty of room for dining and lounging outdoors.
Project Zafiro can accommodate 12 guests in six cabins. The owner’s cabin boasts a fully automatic sliding balcony and is well lit thanks to the big windows that offer open views and let the light flood in.
The main garage hides a 6.3 metre tender with a 3.4 metre crew tender stowed in the foredeck bay.
Project Zafiro has a cruising speed of 13,5 knots and has a range of 4,000 nautical miles at 10 knots. She is due for delivery in 2018.
The sale of Project Zafiro marks the 18th contract signed in 12 months for the yard.
