An all-British team built Sarafsa at the Devonport Royal Dockyard. Since then, the shipyard has changed ownership. After a few months of uncertainty, Pendennis acquired Devonport Yachts, allowing the shipyard to continue building bespoke yachts with one-of-a-kind features. Sarafsa, previously known as Project 54, has technical engineering by Burness Corlett Three Quays and Andrew Winch Designs provided the yacht’s exterior styling and interior design. Key external features of the six-deck construction include a sea level side-boarding platform giving direct access to an interior atrium, voluminous shaded aft and side decks, and what the builder describes as a “winter garden” upper deck dining area. On the sun deck an inside/outside spa complex features a retractable roof with an external bar positioned forward of the helipad, perfect for pre-flight cocktails. If road travel is in order, a car is also available, stowed in the stern garage. Powered by twin MTU 2000 kW engines, Sarafsa has a range of 6,000 nm at a cruising speed of 13 knots. Although ownership of this yacht is not confirmed, a 1998 Amels yacht named Sarafsa that belonged to the royal family of Jordan was sold around the time of this Sarafsa’s launch.
