Nicols — Estivale Sixto (2019)
Description of Gina's houseboat
Houseboat Nicols Estivale Sixto 70hp
The Nicol’s SIXTO, part of the « Estivale » generation, was designed in 2019. With its 3 generously proportioned cabins, it is ideal for 3 couples, or 2 couples and 2 children. It has a spacious aft terrace, level with the living quarters (access via a large sliding bay window. The aft terrace enjoys a table and chairs for outdoor dining, and is equipped with a sun canopy if you need protection from the sunrays! Also to the aft is the classic gate enabling wide access from a jetty to the terrace. But the Estivale range has its own « plus »: two side doors, moulded into the hull, have been added to facilitate side descent from the boat. Highly practical, particularly for “wild” mooring! Simply lay the gangway to disembark onto the bank… Access to the roof patio is gained via a moulded stairway + handrail (for comfort and security). The upper deck offers a second jet-ski-style “collapsible” cockpit to facilitate its use while seated on the bench. To the fore of the boat, a second small terrace moulded into the hull offers a bench and round table to make the most of an unobstructed view of the river while sailing… Finally, there is extensive onboard equipment to ensure great comfort: The fore cabin with 'master'bedroom has direct access to its own private bathroom (washbowl/shower, toilets); another large shower room is accessible from the corridor for the port and starboard cabins, with full shower unit and electric toilet. In the living quarters, TVscreen, radio with CD/MP3 player. In the kitchen: high degree of comfort with 220-litre fridge and freezer compartment, 4-hob cooker/grill and lots of storage space… Not forgetting all the other great features, such as the 220-volt shore power supply, swimming ladder, deck shower head, etc. Mandatory Extras: 1 hour of navigation instruction required at a cost of 50€ and to be paid at the time.
