72′ Southern Ocean NIKITA


$1,749,000 USD



Nikita, an aluminum custom trawler designed by C.W. Payne Yacht Design, was built as a world cruiser and has accomplished just that. She shows beautifully and the extremely high build quality is very evident throughout this vessel. Most systems are redundant, robustly designed and have stood the test of thousands of miles of offshore travel. Cold as well as tropical climates are equally comfortable in this versatile yacht. A light and airy feel is everywhere because of the presence of portlights, hatches and large windows, many off which open and have screens for cooler days and nights. Classic design provides a relaxing feel in elegant surroundings and her profile certainly turns heads. If you are looking for a true blue-water yacht which is a step above in class, Nikita is your girl. She is in great condition and ready to go.
