Story

Sailing has been a passion of mine since my childhood.

My eyes first met the Hermes Speedster during a trade show in 2017. The vintage design, the lines, the details; I saw it immediately. This is not just a boat. Everything was right, down to the smallest details. It was love at first sight. I studied as a designer. What something looks like is important to me and I liked what I saw. From the first moment I glided through the water with the boat, a big smile appeared on my face. This was so different from what I was used to. I realized that this is not just a boat. Sporty and stylish, striking and yet subtle. I felt James Bond and James Dean at the same time. A man of the world. From then on I had a new goal: I also have to convey this feeling to others. I visited architect Nicolas at the shipyard and it was clear to me: the Hermes Speedster would become part of Nicks Boats. I made plans to put the boat on the market and with a small team we are now working hard to capture your heart and that of the rest of Europe.

Philosophy

We believe that the main thing in life is freedom and independence. There is no better way for us to get these unique sensations than to rush across the sea in an ideal boat.

The outstanding Hermes Speedster, a classic styled retro boat inspired by the Porsche 356 from 1959 and strongly influenced by the Gentleman’s runabout boats of the 30s’. Hermes, successfully combines luxury, efficiency, style and comfort. The natural curved lines and the absence of any straight lines, offers a dynamic motion and a unique character to the design.
