Broker's Comments

This is the impeccably-designed and constructed Nicholson 35 built by the legendary Camper & Nicholsons yard. Named by Ferenc Mate in his book "The World's Best Sailboats" she is legendary for her offshore capability. Her high ballast-to-weight ratio allows her to stand up in a blow while others are seeking shelter. Your crew will be glad to know that she was built under Lloyd's Hull Certification supervision.

While heavily-built she is easily-driven in lighter air due to her superb hull design. She is in original condition and while she could use a minor refit (mostly electronics) she could continue her circumnavigation today!

The hull was stripped and epoxy barrier-coated in the late 90's and fresh bottom paint in 2007. New Lofrans windlass in 2007.

The owner is reluctantly letting her go as his dreams of sailing her to Hawaii and beyond have changed.
