About this Nicholson 32 MkVI


The Nicholson 32, a traditional design with pretty lines, needs no introduction. These capable craft have sailed all the oceans of the world and completed many ocean passages. 'Takapoona' was purchased by her current owner in 2014 and has since undergone a partial refit which includes removal and cleaning of the fuel tank, thorough clean of GRP fresh water tank, new galley worktops, new freshwater pump and galley tap, new laminated tiller, sheet winches stripped, serviced, and re-chromed, cockpit coaming strengthened and cockpit re-painted. She is currently fitted with an Aries windvane self-steering system, although if not required by her new owner this can be removed and the price discounted accordingly.
