Please reference the "Four Seasons" a 1550 No Limit Ship at the No Limit Ships website and their blog as it crossed the Northern Atlantic.
After the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show the "Four Seasons" will be returning to Holland on its own bottom crossing the Atlantic. This attests to the construction quality of the No Limit Ships design for safety in a small ship.

The No Limit design models arose from the idea of building very seaworthy, safe and fast yachts that are easy to sail alone and equipped with every convenience, including long (sea) voyages.
The characteristics of the No Limit design are the tough look, the hull shape and the tube.
The steel hull with aluminum structure gives the ship a very low center of gravity giving the ship great stability. The total weight is also low due to the aluminum super structure which is essential for the potential speed.
The air-filled tube around the ship gives not only a tough appearance but the tube is also essential for the behavior within a sea way and during mooring which virtually eliminates the risk of damage from other ships. The NLS D shaped Henshaw tubes are not installed as a floating appendage but are attached at a higher point on the hull. In a more engaging severe sea the tubes act to stabilize and smooth the ride.
The design has been constantly tweaked and improved over the years and has included the latest innovations and novelties. The sharp shape of the hull shape and shallow draft make the No Limit suitable for inland water ways.
The capacity of the fuel tanks and relatively low fuel consumption at cruising speed of the No Limit give it a great range making it ideal for non-stop long distances.
The No Limit is equipped with the latest innovations and developments. The ship comes with a complete navigation package as standard. The No Limit is operable from the fly bridge behind the wheelhouse, it can be styled to your liking.
The standard ship is also equipped with a silent automatic generator which is built into the engine compartment. The engine compartment has an automatic fire extinguishing system.
A very user friendly system that include standard is the “empir bus” system. This is a very reliable central control system which can be programmed to your specification.
Most ships like the No Limit will have the conventional technologies of large switchboards and the like to control everything. This is complicated and inconvenient for many people.
This is not the case with No Limit Ships. The entire ship comes with an operating system which is easy to operate by anyone. The No Limit does have some standard buttons like “aboard” mode, “navigation mode” and “on-board” mode. By pressing one of these buttons, everything will automatically controlled that needs to be controlled.
Boarding is by sidedeck stanchion gates on starboard and port sides to midship watertight door leading to salon and navigation center. Access also by swim platform and transom gate to cockpit and a watertight door to salon. Forward to navigation steering continuing down 7 stairs on starboard side to galley and lower salon. Passage aft through galley to guest stateroom. Passage forward through lower salon to master stateroom. Engine room access watertight door from forward aft deck.

No Limit Ships have a critical eye when it comes to the preservation of a ship.
We make use of a high-quality, two-component preservative system.
Our ships are built of blasted Corten steel. For the first primer treatment the vessel is completely blasted in order to obtain the perfect adhesion to the hull and superstructure.
This is the best starting point for building a high quality preservation system. Everything is coated inside and out with an epoxy coating, after which the ships are completely smooth and finished off with an epoxy putty that is strong yet permanently elastic.
This is sealed with an epoxy coating which gives the ship a smooth finish.
The internal sensitive areas like the bilge and cockpit seats are equipped with an extra hard and smooth epoxy coating which is extremely durable and is easily kept clean.
The decks are fitted with a non-slip coating which is extra resistant to wear and prevents slipping on the treads.
The interior is treated with a high-quality two component and single component painted with a topcoat.
Polyurethane foam insulation of 5cm above the lower salon floor level.
