Vessel Overview


NICOLA II is a typical Northern motoryacht, used seasonally and stored under cover in winter.  She offers a galley-up arrangement plan with four staterooms down, large flybridge area with surround seating and a small aft deck.  Originally customized by Hatteras of Lauderdale, NICOLA II is one of the few 65’s with a VIP stateroom and a unique aft stairway to the master. All interior décor was renewed in summer of 2013.

Includes a leatherette double seat with locker storage to each side and chart storage below.  The helm console surround was recently refitted with black Corian.  

Main deck galley is filled with natural light.  Original mica countertop was replaced in 2012 by a U-shaped Corian unit with integral sinks, totally modernizing the workspace. Other components include:
  • Sharp Carousel II microwave
  • KitchenAid Superla Whisper-Quiet dishwasher
  • Whirlpool Sound Conditioned trash compactor
  • Magic-Chef full sized self-cleaning oven
  • General Electric Ceran white stovetop w/ four burners
  • Amana fridge/freezer – full size 
  • Garbage Disposal
Opposite the galley is a semi-circular dinette with leatherette seating around a Corian topped table.   

Main Saloon
The main saloon was entirely renewed including soles, carpeting, walls and window treatments, couch and loveseat.  (See minor-refit 2013).  The original Hatteras wet-bar was removed in favor of a modern space-saving arrangement with clever bottle storage, under-counter icemaker, wine cooler, black granite counters and nautical style lockers.  Dining for six is forward to port in the main saloon, utilizing an innovative circular table wrapped around the aft stairwell.  Aft of the stairwell is a lounge area with occasional chairs, unique cocktail table and opposing settee.  The décor is understated and tasteful and could be characterized as “New England Yachting”.  More modern is a new 32” flat-screen TV mounted above the bar area.  

Lower Deck Accommoda
At the bow on the lower deck is a stateroom with a double upper / single lower berth arrangement and head compartment with separate shower.  Storage areas include numerous drawers, full-height hanging locker and a cedar lined blanket locker. If an owner desired to keep crew, this stateroom would be very suitable. 
Next aft, up two steps, is a guest cabin to port with matching twin berths.  This stateroom includes storage more than adequate for two, natural light and teak bulkheads.   Across the landing is a head with shower stall which also serves as a day head. 

Aft and down three steps is the VIP stateroom of comfortable dimensions with fore-and-aft queen berth, an inviting settee done in leatherette, abundant drawer storage,  large cedar closer and pleasant daylight via portlights.  Combined with the private, ensuite head compartment to starboard, this space occupies the yacht’s full beam.  Access to the twin engine rooms and master is available through an aft door.

The master stateroom is nothing short of grand with a king sized berth on centerline, natural light on three sides, twelve drawers, walk-in cedar-lined closet and a lighted vanity table. A generous head compartment includes a combination shower / Jacuzzi tub. Fixed furniture is finished in a satin white lacquer which enlarges this comfortable space.  Valences, curtains and wooden blinds are both functional and elegant.  

All staterooms are fitted with SMX digital climate controls, individual reading lamps and custom overhead lighting. Decor and media was refreshed in all of the staterooms in August of 2013: all bedding was renewed, curtains and/or blinds were fitted, each stateroom was equipped with a flat-screen TV.  Original mica countertops in all heads have been replaced with Silastone counters featuring integral sinks. 

Bosch Axxis washer and dryer – lower deck VIP area

Upper helm console is of a modern design with excellent sight lines in all directions. Flybridge social area is surprisingly large with surround seating around a custom Lucite table.  Nicola II is equipped with a two-tier antenna mast mounted above the arch below which is an entertainment centerpiece with flush mounted Weber LPG grille (2013), wet bar, fridge, icemaker and prep area. Seating and social space is generous, a dozen guests would not feel crowded.

Broker Comments
NICOLA II has lived a sheltered life as a Northern motoryacht, remaining in the Northeast year-round for the last 12 years. Exterior surfaces show abundant gloss. Interior is fresh and largely new (see minor refit).  All systems have been carefully inspected, tested and repaired or replaced as needed.  Her owner now envisions a larger boat, creating a unique opportunity.
