Having just reemerged after an intensive 4-year rebuild project, the 72.25-metre Bleu De Nîmes is back in business with a new 16-metre extension and up-to-date interior features. Since leaving Genoa earlier this month, the explorer has joined the market as a yacht for sale.

She features naval architecture by Studio Nattero and an interior design by Pier Vittorio Cerruti. As part of her rebuild project, Pier Vittorio Cerruti was invited back to oversee the interior update, which maintained the yacht's timeless design with an added charter appeal.Bleu de Nimes yacht saloonPhoto: Tom van OossanenBleu de Nimes yacht saloonPhoto: Tom van OossanenBleu de Nimes yacht diningPhoto: Tom van OossanenYacht Bleu de Nîmes, for sale as a PYC vessel, can accommodate up to 28 guests across 13 cabins, including a full-beam owner’s suite on the upper deck forward with an emperor-sized bed, his-and-her bathrooms and walk-in wardrobes.

Out on the main deck aft, guests can make use of the shaded lounge and dining areas, or move up onto the large sun deck, where two large Jacuzzis sit side-by-side with a bar nearby.Bleu de Nimes yacht gymPhoto: Tom van OossanenBleu de Nimes yacht saunaPhoto: Tom van OossanenBleu de Nimes yacht spaPhoto: Tom van OossanenA new garage houses two of the yacht’s tenders which can be also accessed from the fold-down sea terrace on the port side hull. To access the other two tenders, plus the fully-stocked toy store – which includes SeaDoos, canoes, a stand-up paddleboard and diving equipment – guests can move in via the swim platform. Here, there is still enough space for sun loungers for spending quality time beside the water.
