Saphire AG: Innovative lifting mechanism for outboard engine

The Saphire 27 is a sailing boat with various unique features and technical refinements. These include the innovative lifting mechanism for the outboard engine made by Durrer. Michael Tobler from Küssnacht founded Saphire AG in 2012. His goal was to develop a sailing ship for sporty families. Two years later, he presented the result. And it is something to be proud of, as well as the newly designed lifting mechanism for the outboard motor.


Durrer took over its optimisation and implementation, and we benefited from our extensive experience in prototype construction and production. Thanks to our technical design adaptations, the outboard engine is easier to handle.

The optimized lifting mechanism is safe and uncomplicated - in line with the customer's wishes and target group.
