Broker's Comments

Recently reduced this Boat is now a great bargain, designed by Ron Holland, the Nicholson 303 is a much sought after racing cruiser with a long standing reputation. From the moment I stepped onto her I could see that she was maintained to a high standard by the present owner who evidently knows what they are doing. I was suitably impressed by the tidiness and cleanliness of her above top and down below.
The accommodation is neat and organised with plenty of room for 5 people. Thus making this a boat for all occasions, whether you want to go racing and/or go cruising. This year the owner has started to restore the woodwork down below, this looks great. There is a small section that needs completing.
As you can see from her specification, no expense has been spared in upgrading and installing an array of quality navigational and sail equipment.
If you would like any further information or if you would like organise a viewing then please contact me.
