About this Nicholson 30


The Nicholson 30 is built to a very high standard. The internal fit out was completed by Camper and Nicholson.

She has been professionally reupholstered using fire retardant foam. She has a fin keel tipped off by an aerodynamic lead bulb which gives her a high ballast ratio, making her very close winded and comfortable to sail.

The engine has been professionally refurbished and was re-installed in 2018.

Hull was grit blasted and epoxied March 2013.
