Broker's Comments

She is a fine example of the Nicholson 48 and one of the last of this type
The current owners have travelled extensively in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Scottish waters and fitted her out accordingly , definately a motor sailer deck saloon ,with such a detailed inventory, it is difficult to determine what else you may require to sail her far and wide.In fact the owner advises me that the purchaser will be well advised to bring a van to collect all the spares.
