Broker's Comments

Built to Lloyds specifications by this renowned yard with over a 200 yr. heritage. Your immediate impression upon boarding the boat is one of quality & high standards. The Nicholson 35 has been featured in the journal of Worlds Best Sailboats & is legendary in her offshore capabilities, in fact the original owner had circumnavigated this C&N Hull #81 to New Zealand & the S. Pacific. Entering the well appointed cabin below there is ample natural light coming from the fixed ports through out the salon & v-berth with abundant storage for a live-aboard or the cruising lifestyle.
