Broker's Comments

A truly classic yacht, this Nicholson 35 has been lovingly maintained which you cannot fail to notice when you board her (I just wanted to stay on board).
There are not many of these around and I would say that she would be the top of anyone’s list looking for this or similar type of boat, the pictures and foregoing specification tells you everything.
The owner tells us this is the only Nicholson 35 in the world with the original tiller steering
This boat was the Boatshow boat of the year in 1971. This particular boat is hull number 2 and as such, the first one of her build to be sold to the public - number 1 was given to the Nicholson agent in Nice !

Pictures taken September 2013.
