The Nicols Yacht boatyard was founded in 1986 as part of an industrial group:Nadia Group, 100% French and specialised in the transformation of plastics. In 1990, the first NICOLS® centre was opened in Dole (in Franche-Comté), and the following year a reservations centre was created to register holidaymakers’ charters. More than 35 years on, NICOLS® continues to provide a unique service with its threefold expertise as a manufacturer, charterer and base manager, giving it an all-round perspective and mastery of all facets of the business.

Over the years, generations of boats have succeeded one another. First came the Marina, then the Riviera and then the Sedan, easily recognisable with its “sea yacht” silhouette and window-level aft terrace, unrivalled on the market. These were followed by the Comfort series which is popular with couples and lastly by the latest generations: Estivale and Fly.

In total, five boat series, 25 boat models and more than 650 units have been produced by the Nicols Yacht boatyard.
