Broker's Comments

Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a classic Nicholson 31. Renowned as a strongly built, all weather cruiser the 31 was a replacement for the equally popular 32 but the extra beam and higher freeboard made her much more spacious. This 31 has had just two owners from new and as can be seen from the inventory and photos the current owner has kept up with maintenance and upgrades.
Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
