Vessel Details

Nola Emilia is a Classic Trunk Cabin layout. Originally designed by Ken Smith, in the year 1965. The design became legendary, evolving through many GB sizes and models. The last fore and aft trunk cabin model was built in 2011, the 47 Heritage CL, designed by S&S, it bridged the gap between the trawler and motor yacht. Nola Emilia is an updated version, offering two suites one fore and one aft, both with ensuite heads and island queen beds. The galley is mid-level, open to the salon, offering maximum natural light and ventilation. The salon has large windows offering 360-degree views, and comfortable furnishings with side-deck and aft salon access to the flybridge. The flybridge has generous seating in helmsman and navigator STIDD chairs, a large corner settee, an L-shaped settee, and a port-side single settee, accompanied by a wet bar and hand-crafted teak table. The Sparkman & Stephens design is a planing hull, cruising at 18 knots with a max speed of approximately 22 knots. Also, the Niad stabilizers provide a very comfortable motion in any sea at displacement speeds.
