Yesterday, the new motor yacht NISI 1700 was revealed at the prominent opening day of the 35th annual Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, France. NISI 1700 yacht is the third model from the NISI’s yacht collection, presented in a little over a year. Resized, reimagined as well as redefined, the new NISI 1700 is intimately captivating alongside her larger sisters.
Expecting no less by the award winning team that pioneered Casual Opulence to the active jet set, NISI 1700 yacht blends legendary styling with unrivaled engineering that infuses the elegance of a downeast boat, the spaciousness of a true motoryacht, and the racy feel of a sport cruiser into one incredible design.
Luxury yacht NISI 1700 arrives in the footsteps of her big sister, NISI 2400 superyacht, recognized as 2011’s “Best New Yacht” and an acclaimed Cannes World Yachts Trophies winner at last year’s event. The inaugural NISI 2400 model was also honored with the “Best Design” award by the International Superyacht Society later that season.
Industry professionals speculate motor yacht NISI 1700 will be another groundbreaking debut when she splashes next spring.
“Our new NISI continues our tradition of delivering a unique, meaningful sense of occasion to owners,” said Christos Livadas, CEO and Founder of NISI Yachts. “She will transport a Hamptons-esque lifestyle seamlessly from land to water.”
