Camper and Nicholson 33 Yacht FOR SALE
"Beatnic" a fin keel cruiser racer for sale.
History and Construction -
Built in the UK in 1976 as an IOR 3/4 ton racer, designed for offshore cruising and racing. These Nicholson 33's have a proven track record, and sisterships have twice won the Fastnet Race, the last time only back in 2005, against more recently designed vessels. Another sistership won the Round the Island race in her class. Currently this vessel is used as a family sailing boat, with three children on board for weekends away.
"Beatnic" has been with the current owner since 2008 and there are two former owners. The engine was replaced in 2004, with a popular lightweight Yanmar.
The interior is wide beam with the galley is to port of the companionway, a small work area with cooker, coolbox and sink. The chart table is to starboard leading to the quarterberth. The saloon has three single berths with two being outboard bunks.
Forward of the saloon is the toilet compartment with sink and loo, and the forepeak is dedicated to the twin V berth, with storage under.
The Nicholson 33 yacht cockpit has moulded seats with good lockers under. The topsides gelcoat is in fair condition and the decks have painted non-slip, newly painted this year. The rudder stock and rudder were replaced in 2010.
Comments - A fast cruiser racer, now a family boat with a good solid feel. Good headroom and wide beam make for a spacious feel inside. Easy to work decks, still with capability if you want a "round the cans" club racer, or alternatively if you are looking something for coastal cruising without compromise on speed that will get you across to France with flair. Good looking boat with retroussé transom, looks the business for a no-nonsense sailer.
