Custom Steel Pilothouse yacht built to superyacht standards. This yacht is rare quality throughout - from her engineering and design to construction. "SV Nilaya's" systems are 'works of art' and were designed for ease of maintenance and operation. The interior is bright and modernistic and her paintwork is stunning and flawless. There is no rust inside or outside. 316 stainless steel has been used extensively whereever necessary to make her trouble free for years to come. "SV Nilaya" is truly stunning and in” Bristol condition” in every way. There are no excuses here and nothing to add except for the new owner’s preferred equipment as she has only been used for coastal cruising - thus, although she was launched in 1998 she has been little used and shows as new. Designed for fast passagemaking and stylish live-aboard comfort and low maointainence. Superb interior fit-out, generous guest accomodations, spacious main saloon and dining area, large master stateroom with ensuite, superbly constructed to absolutely the highest standars of New Zealand Yacht construction. "SV Nilaya" offers several different accommodation layouts for her cabins which can be converted as needed. Her layout incorporates an inside helm station which becomes invaluable when the weather turns foul. All surfaces are flawless and varnished to yacht standards. This modern classic has only been lightly used by her careful owners. This is truly a yacht that needs to be seen in person. She is ready and capable of taking her new owners on the cruise of a lifetime in comfort and style. Available now for a fraction of her replacement cost.
