Broker's Comments

Nic 30's as they are more commonly known are actually shorter than the name suggests and derived from a shortened mould taken off an Italian racing hull in the C & N yard.
Fast, sturdy and enough accommodation to make cruising a pleasure with friends or family in tow sees them much loved by their owners.
This racer/cruiser has had all the main worries of an older boat put to bed with NEW Seldon MAST AND RIGGING 2003, NEW ENGINE 2004, NEW MAIN 2005(along with an updated sail wardrobe) and a proud owner of the last ten years.
Self tailing winches add to the thought of single handing her.
Truly worth a look at if you are a serious sailor or looking for a good place to begin.
