History

“STAR SAPPHIRE was designed by Jack Laurent Giles and built at the Beltrami shipyard in Genoa. The commissioning owners, the Molins family were so impressed by the yacht so that again four years later they commissioned Laurent Giles to design them another yacht; BLUE LEOPARD.

Some years ago, the current owner, son of her second; found STAR SAPPHIRE for sale in very poor condition after some 30 years ownership in the interim by an elderly Italian gentleman – so an extensive refit was needed. Initial works were undertaken by Classic Works at La Ciotat. The boat was then removed, sailed for 3 months and the restoration was finished at Cantieri Tomei in Viareggio.”
