Broker Remarks

Camper and Nicholson are renowned for building quality ocean-going vessels, they were market leaders when it came to construction methods and finish throughout their range.
The Nicholson 31 was a very popular model, she superseded the Nicholson 32 and the builders added extra beam and freeboard which added extra headroom as well as making the interior more spacious and comfortable. The other difference from the Nic 32 was the addition of a forward facing chart table unlike the linear one that was found on the 32, this allowed a more comfortable position when navigating.
The Nicholson 31 was known used as a single-handed long-distance cruiser, hence she has the Aries wind vane self-steering system onboard. The Nicholson 31 will tackle all conditions in her way and also has a good turn of speed, she has an encapsulated lead filled long keel which is perfect for offshore sailing from a safety perspective. There is a deep cockpit with secure cockpit coamings, this ensures protection in the cockpit which gives crews confidence in a seaway.
The owner has upgraded the boat well, she has been re-engined and the standing rigging was renewed in 2017.
The current owner has mainly used the boat for cross-channel trips to Brittany and the Channel Islands as well as long cruises around our beautiful Southwest coastline. The previous owners have also proven her seaworthiness with return Atlantic crossings and an AZAB trip.
