Yachts – this is one word that’s synonymous with luxury and recreation. We think of yachts and immediately get a feeling of tranquility that not only relaxes and soothes us, but also rejuvenates us.
Most of us though are fairly content with the occasional glimpse of yachts in magazines and books, ‘ooh-ing’ and ‘aah-ing’ with the right amount of enthusiasm for each of the designer yacht models. But then, there does come a time in our lives, when we get to have an actual face-to-face opportunity to gaze at these marvels of the marine world.
Truly then, it’s an opportunity of a lifetime for, at that time, no feeling of exclaiming at pictures can match the awe coursing through minds about these innovatively brilliant vessels.
The yacht Nirvana is one such impressively outstanding example of its class. As befitting its name, the yacht provides an unmatched serenity as intended by its creator – Edmiston. At the Dubai International Boat Show, to be held from 4th March to 8th March, Edmiston is proudly set to feature Nirvana as one of its main exhibitions, for the world to see and believe the true awe-inspiring stature of this yacht, named for beatitude and mystique appeal.

Nirvana’s exterior styling and interior design is by Sam Sorgiovanni. “Unique, individual and stylistically different are all words that come to mind when describing my objectives in the creation of the design. The inspiration for Nirvana’s design is a tropical island rainforest.” – he was quoted as saying on SuperYachtWorld
