When we decided to sell up and live aboard
we decided we needed to sell the boat
as well and find a larger one. We really loved our Nicholson 35. An elegant boat and a perfect under sail.
After having seen many boats, we decided we wanted another Nicholson. We did not aim larger than, say, a 40 footer, but after having seen a 48 we decided that this would solve all our storage
problems. We found the right one sitting quite unloved in a Greek marina. We bought her and had her transported to the Netherlands
by low loader as she was not seaworthy
at the time.
We have given her many presents since, like new seacocks all-over, new sails
, new decks, a new coat of paint
on the hull
, a lot of new running rigging
, a lot of new varnish
in the interior
, new upholstery and lots more, and finally it looks like she starts loving us in return.
Fabulous sailboat, not really too large to sail between the two of us, very comfy in port and at sea. So, here she is (sister ship)
