Broker's Comments

The smallest of the Nicholson fleet, 64 of these 26 footers were built. They are very good sea going yachts with their long keel design. Many of this marque have crossed the oceans and voyaged to far off places.
This particular vessel appears to have been well maintained and a particularly nice example. She has all that you would need to set off on your own journey. Accommodation is available with just three berths, but for a solo or couple she is very comfortable and comes with lots of creature comforts such as hot pressurised water, cabin heating, fridge and electronic windlass - all of which would not normally be on this model.
Even the dinghy is a Walker Bay!

Contact the broker today to arrange your own personal inspection as I know that you will not be disappointed.
