New to the market - Nina Too is a Farr 56 Pilot House built by BSI Marine in Sweden in 2002 

There are very few Pilot House yachts around which offer the performance and live-aboard capability of this yacht. 

She is ideal for the long term cruising couple who plan to spend extended periods of time on board without the need for additional crew but equally at home cruising around the Mediterranean

She has a light and airy pilothouse, large internal volume, cavernous deck storage, great machinery access and a palatial aft cabin. Couple this with a performance for which Farr designs are renowned and she truly is an ideal cruising yacht.

Nina Too has a unique feature in that the helm position is off set to the starboard side of the cockpit in a fully protected area behind the windscreen. This allows a very large cockpit table with plenty of seating area to enhance the living area of the centre cockpit. 

With all of the cruising refinements that you would expect on a yacht of this standard including Hydraulic In Mast and Genoa furling, electric winches, Generator, Air conditioning and bow thruster to name a few, she is very easy to sail shorthanded. 

If you are looking for a quality cruising yacht for the 2020 season Nina Too should be on your list.

General Description

Nina Too is a Farr 56 Pilot House built by BSI Marine in Sweden in 2002 

There are very few Pilot House yachts around which offer the performance and live-aboard capability of this yacht. 

She is ideal for the long term cruising couple who plan to spend extended periods of time on board without the need for additional crew but equally at home cruising around the Mediterranean

She has a light and airy pilothouse, large internal volume, cavernous deck storage, great machinery access and a palatial aft cabin. Couple this with a performance for which Farr designs are renowned and she truly is an ideal cruising yacht.

Nina Too has a unique feature in that the helm position is off set to the starboard side of the cockpit in a fully protected area behind the windscreen. This allows a very large cockpit table with plenty of seating area to enhance the living area of the centre cockpit. 

To say that this boat is in turn key condition is an understatement. This term is used quite loosely but you could join Nina Too tomorrow fill her up with fuel and food and leave on an Ocean voyage.  

The owner has been fastidious with the maintenance and upgrades as time in his ownership has progressed. Built by ourselves for its current owner in 2002, Nina Too is ready to go. If you are looking for a serious offshore cruising yacht for the 2020 season she should be on your list. 

 

Construction

The hull is of a single skin solid laminate in the central regions below the waterline with the remainder and topsides in a sandwich construction using a Divinycell core. Multi-axial matting is used with Vinylester  resin. The hull is finished in white gelcoat with a black coloured cove line and boot topping. Internally, the hull is top-coated throughout.

An internal bottom grid is laid up in a female mould and then laminated into the base of the hull increasing stiffness throughout the hull structure. The hull is formed with an integral keel stub to which the lead keel is through bolted. This also forms the separate engine and main bilge sumps.

The main bulkheads are made of marine grade plywood with a mahogany veneer and laminated on both sides to the hull and deck. The chain plates are bolted to the reinforced main bulkhead. The backstay chain plate is bolted to the transom. The loads of all rigging and deck fittings are distributed through the hull via changes in the lay up of the affected areas.
