The 72.25m 1980 Clelands Shipping Co-built passenger yacht BLEU DE NIMES is offered for sale following an extensive rebuild, which was completed in 2020.
With naval architecture by Studio Nattero and interior design by Pier Vittorio Cerruti, BLEU DE NÎMES is a splendid example of a classic naval ship, which has been completely modernised into a beautiful ocean voyager.
BLEU DE NÎMES’ transformation began in 2000 and her conversion was so extensive that Lloyd’s classified her as a new construction. A fouryear rebuild between 2016 and 2020 saw her extended by 16m to 72.25m.
Complying with the Passenger Yacht Code, BLEU DE NÎMES yacht can accommodate an impressive 28 guests across 13 cabins, including a full-beam Owner’s suite on the upper deck forward. The rest of the guest accommodation comprises two VIP cabins on the main deck, and six double cabins, two triple cabins and two twin cabins on the lower deck. There is also room for 23 crew and four staff members on board.
BLEU DE NÎMES’ impressive list of amenities now includes a cinema room on the main deck, a sauna, massage room and gym on the bridge deck, two Jacuzzis and a touch-and-go helipad.
A new forward fin keel not only adds to the yacht’s overall speed and efficiency but has also resulted in a more comfortable ride at sea. With a range of 20,000nm at 12 knots (220 lts/h), BLEU DE NÎMES is a true ocean voyager.
