Features and upgrades:
" We chose "Nice Landing", 52' Symbol for cruising the Americas Great Loop for a year or so. We like the yacht because she features many options that we have greatly enjoyed cruising out on the loop.
She was first of all designed with Safety in mind, at sea or anchored, with wide side decks for getting to the bow and stern safely with a high railing and second lifeline in between. Excellent Non- Skid decks help keep from slipping on wet decks. All steps inside and out have side lights for night cruising visibility.
This yacht comes with all the luxury and comfort amenities while cruising and living on board. The 16' 4" beam and wide side decks still give a very warm and big feeling in the salon and gourmet galley. The big screen TV brings all the movies on board.
Cooking in the gourmet galley, on the same level as the salon's main deck keeps any chef in the mix with family and friends at all times. Lots of counter space to feed a hungry crew or lay out an appetizer spread like no other. Lots of storage as well to complete a well laid out galley for all occasions.
Outstanding storage throughout the yacht keeps all the clutter to a minimum when underway. It's been a true pleasure cruising Nice Landing over the last year or so and she is now ready for her next owners to continue the fun."
