Exciting new model introduced at Cannes Yacht Show
NASSAU, Bahamas, Sept. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - NISI Yachts reports a new model
to be unveiled today at the prestigious opening day of the 35th annual
Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, France.
Codename "1700", she is the third model to be introduced in NISI's
incredible yacht collection in a little over a year. Resized,
reimagined and redefined, the new NISI 1700 is intimately captivating
alongside her larger siblings.
Expecting no less by the award winning team that pioneered Casual
Opulence to the active jet set, NISI 1700 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.
NISI 1700 arrives in the footsteps of her big sister, NISI 2400,
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 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."
