Nassau, Bahamas, and Miami, Florida, May 13, 2011 – NISI Yachts has been awarded a new contract to build a semi-custom NISI 2400 for a prominent Northeast American business couple. The couple commissioned their new build within weeks of first seeing NISI’s American debut at the Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show.

NISI, the icon of casual opulence and legendary styling with unsurpassed engineering, is renowned for her superior lifestyle experience and attractive blend of simplicity. Solitary in her class, NISI is the first yacht in the world under 100 feet available to RINA Charter Class + MCA (MGN280) commercial standards. Custom layouts and engineering specifications requested by her owners have resulted in numerous onboard comfort convenience upgrades, including an expanded flybridge, hull lengthened by two feet, and a four-person Jacuzzi spa on her main aft-deck cockpit.

Owner specifications call for propulsion to be provided by only two propulsion pods with performance approaching 30 knots, unlike typical yachts in this class requiring a three or four pod propulsion package. To achieve this objective, advanced weight management engineering and construction methods will integrate extensive epoxy and carbon fiber laminates throughout. The increased efficiency and enhanced performance have earned this semi-custom NISI the “GT” designation.

“NISI is the most coveted yacht in a decade. Her groundbreaking design introduces the quality and character of a superyacht in a series range from 68 feet to 86-feet long. She rewards her owners their own true sense of occasion,” sites Christos Livadas, CEO and Founder of NISI Yachts. “Her owners fell in love at first sight with NISI’s styling and state-of-the-art features and acted decisively on their feelings. In addition to the peerless style and cutting-edge technology, her owners value NISI’s fuel and energy efficiencies as well as their ability to run without a crew should they choose to.”

Hull #2 – NISI 2400GT is scheduled to launch in summer 2012 at the modern shipyard of NISI’s exclusive builder, Tricon Marine Group.

NISI’s Legendary Styling

NISI is an instant modern classic; seamlessly tying lines of the past with the shape of the future. Beneath the surface, she boasts state-of-the-art technology and combines outstanding performance with casual opulence. Her plumb bow, wave-piercing hull, pod propulsion system, and stabilizers produce performance at speed. From the pinnacle of the arch atop her command deck, to the covered wheelhouse, to the sparkling stainless steel stanchions and rugged lifelines that circle the deck, NISI turns heads wherever she goes.

World-class craftsmanship can be found in every detail of NISI. Quality finishes flow throughout to create an expansive feel; a serene, zen-like atmosphere that is soothing, airy and bright with large windows revealing stunning views of sea and sky.

NISI sacrifices neither luxury nor comfort for simplicity and convenience. Her generous open plan erases the line between indoors and outdoors and allows owners to customize their space in simple, dramatic, wildly romantic, or sensual designs.
