Product Slideshow


This boat is available in October 2024 & can be visited at the NICOLS base in Le Somail (Département 11/ Languedoc-Roussillon).

The Duo of the Nicols Estivale range is a single cabin canal boat with a double bed. An extra double bed can be made from the convertible sofa in the living area.
Despite its small size (just 8.85m in length) this canal boat has everything you’ll need.
The bright living area offers a panoramic view of your surroundings and at the back of a boat is a deck space with canopy, great for alfresco dining.
The kitchen offers a remarkable amount of equipment for such a small boat – a large fridge, hob and oven whilst there is also a TV, radio/CD/MP3 player and connectivity to shore power supply of 220 volts.
Also outside is a second steering position on the top deck and a swim ladder and deck shower as with all of our Estivale range of canal boats.

The NICOLS®-boatyard is:
A French builder and charterer, with 35 years of experience,
a varied range adapted to customer demand,
new models and continuous innovations,
an elegantly designed, sophisticated fleet,
bright, spacious and airy cruisers,
boats suited forfamilies, with maximum safety
nautical bases on a human scale (exclusive to NICOL’S ®)
and presence in the most beautiful regions of France as well as in Germany, the Netherlands, Hungary and Portugal.

Our river cruisers are rigorously maintained throughout the season, with dry storage every winter where 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, some bases can offer you their services. They have the benefit of full knowledge of our boats combined with real expertise, providing the following:

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).
