Description

This was the manufacturers Boat Show model and winner of 3 Peaks race with a rating of 0.8027, so a great cruiser/racer with bullet-proof hull layup of a standard unknown today.
Currently ashore and undercover at Fairlie Quay Marina, Largs.
While out of the water the keel has been shot blasted and epoxy coated. The hull and rudder have been stripped and have had International Gelshield system applied. The hull and keel has then had three coats of International Primocon. Then two coats of anti-foul. There are new anodes onboard.
The top sides have been sanded and primed then painted with Epifanes Mono-urethane.
A new curved forepeak window has been fitted. The headlining needs tidying and re-fitting.
The boat does require work before she goes back in the water, much of this work is cosmetic. Some of the wiring and domestic batteries need tidying / renewing.
The standing rigging was replaced in 2010
The boat sails well and has a safe deep cockpit.
The forestay has a ToughLuff roller reefing
Interior comprises of the standard Nicholson layout with a vee berth for two forward (with infill cushion to make a double) and a small double in the main cabin (with infill cushion). There is also a pilot berth and storage for which there is no cushion, but this could be reinstated.
