Enigma & Saint Nicolas
The 74.5m Enigma (ex: Eco; Katana) was built in 1991 in Germany by Blohm & Voss. When launched, hull 956 was considered by many as the most radical superyacht ever designed and built. 17 Years later, she still ranks high amongst the worlds most futuristic looking yachts. Responsible for her warship-like looks is Martin Francis. Enigma is pictured here with the 70.2m Saint Nicolas. Saint Nicolas was the second of three more or less identical yachts, which were ordered by one client at the North German shipyard Lürssen. The first launched was Apoise in April 2006 and the third one is Martha Ann, delivered in April 2008.
