Broker's Comments

The Nicholson 32 is a classic cruising yacht capable of going anywhere. This one has had a lot of recent upgrades in the last two or three years see full details above on our website. They include new upholstery and curtains in the saloon, new instrumentation including a colour chart plotter and lots more. The engine was replaced in 1986 and looks much newer. The main has in-mast reefing, and the lines are led aft to the cockpit making her ideal for single handed sailing.
Appointments to view can be arranged in advance 6-days a week by contacting the Boatshed Essex office direct.
