Nirvana is a 53-meter ketch built by Vitters and delivered in 2007.
The yacht is designed by Dubois Naval Architects, as a fast cruising ketch.
She is built out of aluminum and is powered by two Caterpillar engines. Her top speed is 12 knots. Her cruise speed is 10 knots.
Her interior is designed by Josep Juanpere Miret of GCA Arquitectes. Nirvana can accommodate 10 guests and has a crew of 9.
Pivoting Center Board
The yacht has an innovative pivoting centerboard, which reduces the yachts’ draft from 10 meters to 3 meters. This allows her to operate in shallow waters and to anchor close to the beach.
Monaco Yacht Show Prix du Design
In 2008 SY Nirvana won the Monaco Yacht Show Prix du Design, which is an award for the most beautiful design.
In that same year, the yacht also won the International Superyacht Society Design Award in the category “Best sailing yacht above 40m“.
The yacht’s owner is Isak Andic Ermay
A few years ago, the name of Nirvana was changed to Nirvana Formentera. This indicates that Andic sold Nirvana (although we were not aware of her being for sale). Or he is building a new yacht. And has reserved the name Nivana for his new project.
Some sources mention a project named Nirvana II. Do you know more about Nirvana or a new project for Andic? Please do send us a message.
UPDATE: We were told he had plans to replace the yacht. But he abandoned the new build plans and refitted Nirvana instead.
