Known for innovative design and quality construction the Nicols yard is one of the most prolific constructers of inland waterway craft in France both for the hire and private markets. Not to confuse quantity with quality they have a vertically integrated production philosophy and maintain quality control at the production stage not just the assembly stage. This 1350 VIP left the yard in 2003 destined for the luxury hire market and has just undergone a major refit by Nicols, with new zero hour Nanni engine, new upholstery and new kitchen.
