NYIMA for sale

NYIMA, Tibetan for sun, is a 32-metre sailing yacht that was launched in Zaandam in 2003 under the name Christoffel’s Lighthouse. She has also sailed under the names Emmaline and Carl Linné, the latter after an 18th-century Swedish biologist, physician and zoologist.

NYIMA’s design is based on the look of the Bristol Channel Pilot Cutters; 19th century sailboats that were highly maneuverable, fast and easy to handle with a small crew. This enabled them to quickly transport local sea pilots to and from large ships in all weather conditions, in order to have them help with safe navigation to or from Channel ports. In addition, her lines are inspired by the participants of the 1885 America’s Cup: Puritan and Genesta.

Dykstra Naval Architects combined modern technology with classic style and traditional elegance when designing both the exterior and interior of NYIMA. She embodies speed, strength, suppleness, beauty and efficiency. This versatile sailing yacht has a retractable keel and with a total length of 32 metres is ideally suited for long distances at sea. Thanks to the lifting keel, she can access the shallowest ports and anchorages, thus fulfilling her destiny as a true world explorer. NYIMA was nominated for the Boat International Superyacht Award.
