Behold the good ship Saint Nicolas, floating gin palace and testament to mankind’s engineering capability.
I recently saw this boat up close, moored in the marina near where we were staying on holiday in Sardinia.
I’m not sure whether my amateur photography skills adequately convey the sheer scale of the boat. But take it from me…it is, to use the correct nautical terminology, fucking massive.
In case the image doesn’t do it justice, here’s some information on the 230ft (70 metre) custom-built motor yacht that I found from some quick googling:
Saint Nicolas’s interior configuration has been designed to comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests overnight in 6 cabins, comprising a master suite, 1 VIP stateroom, 2 double cabins, 2 twin cabins and 1 pullman bed. She is also capable of carrying up to 19 crew onboard in 9 cabins to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht experience.
