NINKASI is an award-winning creation of a highly experienced build team. Originally delivered as CALLIOPE, this fully custom superyacht is the second collaboration between an experienced yacht owner, project management team, naval architecture/design firm Langan Design Associates, and the renowned Holland Jachtbouw shipyard in the Netherlands.
The Rhode Island-based Langan Design Associates was given specific ideas of design and performance. This gentleman’s cruiser has the efficiency, range, and stability to cruise the world’s farthest reaching oceans (as she indeed has), while her deep-V and hard chine hull allow comfortable top end cruise speed of 16.5 knots for more local pursuits.
Rhoades Young was brought in to pen the interior of this owner’s second project. Their work here is stunning. Limed oak panelling and modern loose furniture create refined and elegant scenes throughout the yacht. Design features like the reverse twin spiral staircases and double-wide entry doors on the bridge deck aft drive home the fact that a true vision was in mind when commissioning this project.
The current owner is also a highly experienced yachtsman and NINKASI has been managed by the same company since delivery. It should be no surprise NINKASI has been subject to a vigorous maintenance program and is in turn key condition.
