Brokers Comments
The Nicholson 32 is a highly sought after and very well respected boat that has the attractive lines & classic looks that will turn heads in any Marina. This particular MK VIII version has been owned by the current family for over 20 years and it is clear to see that it has been loved and well maintained by them. It has a big advantage of having had a brand new engine fitted in 2008 that has relatively low use as well, as well as having had a new new mast and rig back in 2001. With 6 berths, galley & heads along with Nav Station, GPS, VHF & Hydrovane self steering, she is ready for new adventures. With her being built to Lloyds standards, you know that she was constructed to take rough weather cruising if needs be.

With solid build and functional layout, this classic, Charles Nicholson designed Halmatic built Nicholson 32 offers everything you could need for capable sailing around coastal waters or long distance cruising. She is currently lying in Southampton & viewing can be arranged through Aspire Boat Sales.
