Broker Remarks

This Camper Nicholson 48 is a perfect long distance blue water cruiser. Extremely well built and now more importantly extremely well maintained and updated by her present owner of 21 years . Her powerful hull and elegant lines make her a safe, stable, comfortable and fast passage maker and she qualifies as MCA code zero so is a genuine go anywhere vessel.

She sleeps 8 in four cabins. Has two heads ,one en-suite from the rear master cabin and a well laid out practical galley with plenty of storage throughout. She has hot and cold water with showers in both heads. When in Northern climes she benefits from warm air heating and when in hotter locals she has air conditioning.

Cleopatra Nikita has been updated and thoroughly maintained. In 1994 her teak decks were replaced and in 2009 they were fully sanded and re-caulked . All her standing rigging has been replaced within the last 10 years. Her hull is sound as you would expect of a Camper Nicholson and she was copper coated in  March 2013. Her Borg Warner Velvet gearbox was replaced with a re-conditioned unit in 2009 and a new Auto prop fitted in 2013.

She is currently lying in Saint Carles Marina (MDL) in Spain and is ready to go on her next adventure.


The Nicholson 48 provides real comfort for the long-term cruiser. She has all the luxuries needed to keep the most demanding crew happy. Heating and air-conditioning , hot showers in both heads and a deck shower, a great galley with refrigerator, cold box, microwave, cooker and plenty of dry storage. A substantial wet locker for oilies and sea boots. Each cabin has a full length wardrobe with under berth storage to meet the demands of the full time cruiser.Saloon, galley and aft cabin now have LED lighting and she has red lights throughout.
She sleeps 8 in total. The forward cabin is large with a twin berth ,the saloon provides a large double . There is a very secure sea berth in the passage cabin midships .
The wonderful owners aft cabin has a large double and a single. The double berth has been widened by the current owners and is considerably wider then the standard double shown on the plan.  Both heads have modern toilets, hot showers and vanity units with washbasin

The saloon has ample book shelves and cupboard storage and seats 8 comfortably. The dinning table folds in two and has fiddles.

The whole interior of Cleopatra Nikita is fitted out in quality teak and this gives her a warm and cosy feeling throughout.
