Vitters Nirvana Yacht Oct 10

Vitters shipyard is most famous about their custom yachts and superyachts. Vitters is located in Zwartsluis, The Netherlands. They have started working in 1990, and with this short time they have achieved great success. The list of yachts and superyachts they have built is extensive; they are talented, working with top naval designers and capable of building huge yachts up to 75 meters (246 feet).

Vitters Nirvana uses large fly bridge to add to enjoyment and safety features and has many futuristic but simple and easy to use functions. In fact, the whole yacht is built around that philosophy. It has a draft that is no more than 3 meters (9 feet) fully loaded. This was achieved by developing a full-bodied hull form with wide beam, big ballast capability and pivoting centerboard to take the draft to 10 meters when fully deployed. This high aspect ratio foil gives efficient upwind performance while the combination of generous beam and high ballast ratio gives excellent stability.

Extensive factory testing ensures excellent stability and has perfected the design and waterdynamics. Vitters Nirvana has extremely nice appering and we could believe our eyes when we saw the whole package. It is ideal to explore coastal regions and those small paradise islands and be able to stop and anchor just meters away from the beach. Vitters Nirvana is unmatched when it comes to equipment and visual quality of the both interior and exterior.

Interior design is a result of cooperation between Dubois Naval Architects and the interior designer, Josep Juanpere Miret of the architect’s office GCA in Barcelona. The design line is avant-garde and elegant, with expensive materials used, many of them unique. The devotion to details is outstanding. The most important pieces that explain the project concept are located in the main deck as it has been done in the stairway, with its lightness and visual transparency. It is a high-tech piece, keeping an apparent simplicity.
