With its vast front cabin equipped with numerous storage units, an office space and direct access to a private bathroom, it will delight skippers looking for a spacious and comfortable interior.
It has the same aft terrace, level with the living quarters (access via a large sliding bay window), previously seen and admired in 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. But the Estivale range has its own « plus »: two side gates, moulded into the hull, have been added to facilitate side descent from the boat. 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
Finally, there is extensive onboard equipment to ensure great comfort: 220 volt shore power supply, swimming ladder, etc

Maintaining your boat
Our river cruisers are rigorously maintained throughout the season, with dry storage every winter, or an examination and full, meticulous service of the deck and hull are performed, accompanied by anti-fouling.
The advantages of Nicols service:
Thanks to our network of bases across France, a number of our partners can offer you their services. They have the benefit of full knowledge of our boats combined with real expertise. This is why the base in Port sur Saône, for example, can provide the following services:
Mooring your boat,
Wintering with repairs, etc.
Fitting additional equipment
Obtaining your licence
After Sales Service / Spare parts:
Since Nicols is a builder and charterer, we have a warehouse within our boatyard containing spare parts and other accessories. We remain at your disposal at all times to offer you advice and services.
The annual maintenance budget:
The fact that Nicols boats are designed with a polyester hull means they have a very low maintenance budget; their simple, practical and rational design, originally created for charter, also contributes to this low maintenance cost.
As an owner, you should plan to have your boat serviced on land every 3 to 4 years. Other than that, in the same way as a car, it is a question of ongoing maintenance: oil change
