Broker's Comments

Now very much a classic in every sense the Nicholson 32 represents some of the best in British boatbuilding and design. Stepping onboard this example it was clear to me how yachts used to be built. Strong and solid with great sea-keeping qualities. And they still have a very loyal following. Although maybe not as roomy down below as some modern builds there is great use of space with good headroom and plenty of light from the large windows. This Nicholson has been with the same owners for nearly 18 years and it is with great reluctance that they now offer her for sale. Twice featured in the yachting press this one is something of a celebrity. The owners are aware that she is in need of updating and some essential work and they have kindly provided me with detailed information to share with serious enquiries.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
