Broker's Comments

A Classic Long Keel Cruiser the Nicholson 32 remained in production for almost 20 years. They are highly regarded for their seaworthiness and robust construction. They are Blue Water Cruisers that are also built to perform well; the initial design took account of requirements for cruiser/racing.
This one had the hull was treated professionally in 2006; the chain plates were also renewed around that time as was the rudder heal fitting.
The boat is in end of season condition and does need some TLC.
Appointments to view can be arranged in advance 6-days a week by contacting the Boatshed Essex office direct.
