and comfortable offshore sea-keeping capabilities."
NISI's 2400GT model was outfitted with only two Volvo IPS 1200

satellite domes in under 10 seconds to clear low-lying bridges,
extensive iPad/iPhone control of nearly all the ship's electrical and
entertainment systems, and advanced vibration and acoustic dampening
systems to deliver a whisper-quiet ride that reduces salon sound levels
to less than 65db.
"To build the world's best yachts, one must work with a very special
builder. I applaud and recognize NISI's entire team for their continued
excellence," says Katerina Cozias, Director with NISI Yachts.

Hamptons, Bahamas, the French Riviera, and Brazil, have all discovered
