NINKASI is a proven global cruiser of the finest quality. Her masterful design is the careful result of long term collaboration between her original owner and the late, highly regarded Naval Architect Bill Langan with partners Sam Hunt and Tom Degremont.
The fundamental design brief called for a sophisticated, purposeful looking yacht with great sea keeping abilities and extended range for circumnavigation. Langan Design Group took that directive and hit a home run achieving a 15-knot speed target utilizing a fast displacement single chine “V” bottom design, the best choice for performance, stability, and range: 2450 miles at 12.5 knots that can be increased to 4000 miles at an economical 10.5 knots. Her ideal beam to length ratio and moderate draft gives this stunning yacht exceptional volume at 453 GRT. Owner/guest comfort is further enhanced with “at rest” or “zero speed” stabilization.
Step inside and you immediately know she is no ordinary yacht, her décor and high concept design by Rhoades Young pleases the eye and senses at every turn. The choice of woods, finish and fixtures are subtle and soothing. The quality of the joinery work by Oldenberger, exceptional.
Simply put, NINKASI is the epitome of what an elegant, seaworthy, and efficient yacht should be.
