A two-boat owner, Nika first had to undergo €80,000 worth of refit work before being delivered to her new owner. The team oversaw the refit, and advised and managed the new registration, while Lacombe is seeing trends for the safe 30-40m range popping up later in the season. “We have indications showing five cabin yachts from 30-40m are the highest demand in market, in particular, those which have cost-effective propulsion systems”.
