The Nicols OCTO, part of the new “Estivale” generation, was designed in 2009. With its four cabins (including convertible beds: either double or twin-sized), it is ideal for four couples or two couples with four children. It comes with an aft terrace window level with the living quarters (access via a large sliding bay door), a popular feature that is also included with the Sedan range.
The aft terrace enjoys a deck saloon for outdoor dining, and is equipped with a sun awning if you need protection from the rays! Also to the aft is the classic gate enabling wide access from a jetty to the terrace. The Estivale range has an extra advantage: two side gates, moulded into the hull, have been added to make it easier to get off the boat from the sides. Highly practical, particularly for “wild” mooring! Simply lay the gangway to disembark onto the bank.
Access to the roof solarium is gained via a moulded stairway + handrail (for comfort and security). The upper deck offers a second jet-ski-style “collapsible” cockpit to facilitate its use while seated on the bench. To the fore of the boat, a second small terrace moulded into the hull offers a bench and table to make the most of an unobstructed view of the river while sailing.
Lastly, there is a wide range of amenities on board to ensure the greatest possible convenience. This includes spacious bathrooms with a built-in shower stall and towel dryers!
In the living quarters, you will find an LCD TV with a DVD player and a radio/CD/MP3 player. You will also find that the kitchen is well furnished for your convenience with a 220 L fridge and freezer compartment, a four-burner hob and oven/grill as well as the new addition of a mini bar! Not forgetting all the other great features, such as the 220 volt shore power supply, swimming ladder, etc.
