Broker's Comments

This is an excellent example of a Nicholson 32 Mk X. Highly sought after, the Mk 10 benefits from extra head height and a more comfortable accommodation lay out. This is on top of all the usual Nic 32 excellent qualities, (one of Camper Nicholsons' most successful boats). Strong, stable and fast, these blue water racer cruisers, with long encapsulated lead keels, have great seakeeping qualities. Quite often, the serious sailors yacht of choice.

This example, has been maintained to a high standard and is fitted with quality Owen sails, a fully working wind vane system, a bow thruster, a good Nav fit including AIS , standing rigging that was all replaced this year 2020 (apart from the lowers) and an in-date life raft. After a winter maintenance period ashore, she is now returning to the water with fresh antifoul and a recently serviced 30hp Yanmar engine (year 2000).

I think that you’d be hard pushed to find a Nic 32 in such good condition and at such a price. We have a client who, after sailing in this very yacht last year, was so impressed that he took the decision to purchase his own Nic 32.
