STYLISH YET STURDY

The overall design brief for Nicostasia was to create a cool-looking, smart-working family boat, thoroughly adapted to the clients’ wishes. The interior and exterior were both designed in partnership with designer Guido de Groot.

General Arrangement

INGENIOUS ELEMENTS

The pièce de résistance of bespoke design on Nicostasia is the compact but state-of-the-art open galley integrated in the saloon. Normally the saloon contains the dining space while the galley is located elsewhere in the boat. This owners love to socialise with guests while cooking, so they requested this one-of-a-kind feature.

THE PULSING HEART

Nicostasia has a conventional shaft propulsion system, with twin MTU 10V 2000 M93 engines of 1502 hp each which provide a maximum speed of some 23 knots. She is equipped with a 30kW Electric 96V DC 3 phase bow- and stern thruster, and two 26kW Nothern Lights PX332K2 auxiliary engines (generators). An electric Seakeeper 26 gyroscopic stabilising system optimises comfort for passengers and crew.
