Broker's Comments

Nice example of the ever popular Nicholson 32

Great cruiser that is capable in taking you anywhere in comfort with plenty of space for overnight stays
The Nicholson 32 has proved an amazing success with nearly 400 built..
Her wieght and easy sections give her a motion with no shocks or surprises allowing crew to move about with ease.
This one is in good overall condition and certainly worth coming to see.
