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).
