Broker's Comments

This boat comes with the Nicholson pedigree and has featured in Sailing Today magazine.

She has been much loved and has helped the current owner win countless victories.

She'd benefit from a good upper deck blast and polish, but she seems sound and should continue to give a great performance to the new owner, or she may offer the potential for good weekend accommodation for a small family or group of friends.

This is a cheap way to get afloat and maybe even get to the front of the pack!
