Peter Nicholson designed 35' Classic Yacht comissioned and built in 1966 for Sir Owen Aisher under the old One Ton Cup Rule by Camper & Nicholsons yard in Gosport. She was chosen to compete in the 1967 the One Ton Cup in Copenhagen with Peter Nicholson as helmsman and one of 3 British boats. Her full history is known and she has served as both competitive offshore and inshore racer and coastal cruiser with pedigree. She is now offered for sale with transferable mooring in the Beaulieu River.In 2001, her 35th birthday present was a major refit with all structural and mechanical components replaced, whilst retaining the shipwrighting and bags of original features. During the refit, she was fitted with a new engine and electrics, cooker and heads. Then 9 years later in 2010 all electronic and navigation systems were upgraded. In 2011 her mast and all rigging was replaced and upgraded, including a carbon fibre spinnaker pole. She is for sale with a wardrobe of sails including a 2008 North Sails main and jib made in 3DL.
The accommodation for 6 is arranged with 2 main berths and 2 pilot berths in the central saloon, a navigators berth aft and one foreward in the forecastle. One of the interesting original features of the accommodation layout is that the seat backs of the 2 main berths double as a lee board to retain the occupant in rough weather. The sides of the pilot bunks drop down for easy access. The forecastle also doubles as a rope and spinnaker store. Just foreward of the mast is a hanging space to port and the toilet and washbasin to starboard.
The boat is equiped with a Force 10 Cooker with two burners, oven and grill, a Force 10 cabin heater , Jabsco marine toilet and two manual bilge pumps (one in the cabin and one in the cockpit). An original chromed brass Whale hand pump vacates the galley basin. The Sony Radio/CD can also play music from an iPhone or iPad. Next to the comfortable chart table is an easy to use switchboard in which there are two 12v sockets for charging handheld VHF, chartplotter or phone, and a battery monitor. Winter all over and Summer cockpit covers. Sea Tiger anchor winch and 50 meters of chain.
The fresh water cooled Yanmar 2GM20 has been regularly maintained since being installed in 2001. A two bladed 16" x 8" bronze propellor is driven directly through an Aquadrive flexible coupling and a maintenance free PSS seal by the engine and gearbox mounted infront of the companion way steps. This means there is all around access to the engine for servicing. The Halyard exhaust system can divert warm water through the hull underwater to make for an extreemly quiet operation.
