Launched in June 2023, Zaphira incorporates all the best design features that Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders developed over the preceding 26 years of constructing Elite motor yachts; Zaphira is a tour de force and a stunning showcase of the skills and abilities of the team at Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders.

The owners chose Aurora Gold for the topsides and what an inspired choice it was; changing from an almost metallic silver to a dazzling gold depending on the light and contrasting very nicely with the white and grey superstructure, Zaphira looks glamorous from every angle.

The helm station is located in the expansive pilothouse, accessed via stairs in the saloon and from the cockpit. But the pilothouse is more than just a helm station; it is a second entertaining area with comfortable, built-in settees along both sides, seamlessly connecting through the three-panel, stacking sliding doors to exterior seating on the tender deck. 

Navigation is provided by a bank of three 16-inch Furuno MFDs. A joystick docking station has been included on the port tender deck, making berthing a breeze.

Both the tender deck seating area and the cockpit can be fully enclosed with clears, making these outdoor spaces comfortable pretty much all year round. 

The interior decor is sophisticated, elegant and understated, with the dark-stained oak cabinetry complementing the oak flooring in the galley, dinette and heads.

And, as with all custom built boats, any unique features owners want incorporated, we are always willing to explore and include if feasible; a perfect example is button actuated footrests built into the saloon seating. Perfect for relaxing with a refreshing beverage after a hard day of luxury boating.

Powered by twin MAN 800s, Zaphira has a top speed of a touch under 30 knots and cruises at 25 knots.

Finished to Lloyd Stevenson Boatbuilders' usual very high standard, Zaphira is built for absolute comfort. The no compromises approach to her build means the new owners have exactly the boat they wanted.
