Broker's Comments

Boatshed sold this boat to the current owner in 2009 , when he moved her to north Scotland , where she has remained ashore and undercover.
The photos reflect a mixture of how she was then and her position ashore now. This is what the broker wrote about her in 2009
"If one looks up the word "classic" in the dictionary you will find the following entry.
clas·sic (klsk) adj.
1.Belonging to the highest rank or class.
2.Serving as the established model or standard.
3.Having lasting significance or worth; enduring.
4. Formal, refined, and restrained in style.
5.Simple and harmonious; elegant: the classic cut of a suit; the classic lines of a clipper ship.
It would be safe to say that this Nicholson 32 Mk8 meets all of those conditions with consummate ease.
This boat is, without doubt, a classic.
Lovingly maintained to an excellent standard whilst still maintaining most of the original features that just demand attention from even the most casual admirer.
Unfortunately owing to the ill health of the owner she was not sailed ,
She is just waiting to be sailed
