Broker's Comments

Designed by Ron Holland, the Nicholson 303 is a much sought after racing cruiser that offers spacious accommodation for up to five people.
This particular example is a real credit to her existing owner who has restored and maintained her to a very high standard.
She is in excellent condition for her age, and as you can see from her specification, no expense has been spared in upgrading and installing an array of quality navigational and sail equipment.
Viewing highly recommended.

These boat details are subject to contract.
