A fully custom steel and aluminium build, she was the second hull in a mini-series of three 70-metre yachts designed by Espen Øino and delivered by Lürssen in 2007, with a comprehensive refit in 2016. Her interior is by François Zuretti who has created understated yet intricate embellishments in elements such as marquetry, engraved glass, and marble inlays.
Featuring six double cabins, two of which are equipped with bunk beds for children, along with a seventh cabin for two staff members, she is designed for live-aboard, long-term cruising. The broker said: "spanning six spacious decks, she epitomises indoor-outdoor living and is the perfect platform for relaxed family cruising and elegant entertaining".
Standout features include her impressive 2.3-metre minimum headroom throughout, an elevator running right through from tank deck to pool deck, and a swimming pool with counter-current jets and a bar.
Zuretti has specified rare and distinctive materials, including parchment, palm, mother-of-pearl, shagreen, bamboo, and buffalo hide. The broker said her "ambiance is opulent while maintaining a cosy atmosphere still, making the yacht perfect for voyages in both warm and cold climates".
Saint Nicolas' asking price was not disclosed.
