Broker's Comments

"The Nicholson 32 was designed in 1962 by Peter and Charles Nicholson of Camper & Nicholsons, then one of Britain's most prestigious custom boat builders. The hulls were all moulded by Halmatic, and from 1966 onwards the boats were both moulded and completed by Halmatics. By modern standards Nicholson 32s are massively strongly built, and remain popular as economical go-anywhere cruisers. They have a very high reputation for seaworthiness, many having made long ocean passages". That information is from Nicholson 32 Archive on Yachtsnet where you will find representative photos of the Nic 32 marque and more information so, what do we have here? I believe our example to be a Mk X (ten) of this highly regarded ocean cruiser. In her day she was classed as a cruiser/racer and could still win some silver in club offshore events, especially when the going gets tough, but it is as a 'bombproof' cruiser that these yachts really made their mark. This one is in the ownership of a retired naval gentleman who had intended to cruise her to New Zealand and beyond. Unfortunately time and tide, once again, waited for no man and health limitations now demand the sale of a well prepared and sensibly equipped cruising home. She has recent sails and rigging, an abundance of spare gear, and could probably cast off for NZ right away. An offer close to her asking price might be considered.
