The perfect yacht for an extended weekend, NISI 1700 infuses the elegance of a downeast boat, the spaciousness of a true motor yacht, and the racy feel of a sport cruiser into one incredible design. Performance exceeds 40-knot top and 33-knot cruise speeds. Finalists in this category included the Grand Banks 76′, Horizon RP110′ and IAG 104′ Electra.
NISI was also named a finalist in the “Best Asian Yacht Builder” category in the 25 meters & above yacht grouping. Asian yacht builders have been growing in global market share and international recognition.
“On behalf of myself and the rest of the NISI Yachts team, we thank the panel of esteemed judges for honoring us with this award,” said Christos Livadas, Chairman of NISI Yachts. “I am proud of the quality and craftsmanship achieved by our team on NISI 1700, and of the recognition granted to us by this panel of independent industry experts. For us, the 1700 Vantage is a modern classic with cutting-edge style that offers state-of-the-art technology for optimum performance, handling, and safety.”
