About this Camper & Nicholson A Nicholson Bermudian Sloop

SWANILDA is from the board of Charles Arthur Nicholson whose designs favoured full bows & fine run; a shape with comfortable seagoing characteristics – and this yacht is no exception.

Almost a total rebuild and restoration make her a very usable classic. Indeed following her 2010 reconstruction, her design and condition now should allow ocean passages as well as summer cruises and classic races. Given the treatment she has received, she is undoubtedly very reasonably priced.

SWANILDA is from the board of Charles Arthur Nicholson whose designs favoured full bows & fine run; a shape with comfortable seagoing characteristics – and this yacht is no exception.

Almost a total rebuild and restoration make her a very usable classic. Indeed following her 2010 reconstruction, her design and condition now should allow ocean passages as well as summer cruises and classic races. Given the treatment she has received, she is undoubtedly very reasonably priced.

History


SWANILDA was designed by C A Nicholson, built in 1960 for Horace Skeet Broom by Berthon and named after the central character in the ballet, Coppelia – and she was built for racing. Indeed she raced in RORC and Royal Southern events with varying degrees of success until rule changes made her out dated and she went into retirement as a fast passage cruiser from 1965.

In 1967Horace Broom was sold her to Henry Williams who in 1969 shared her with Jonathan Trafford who both then sold her on to Arthur Wilson who kept her until 1986 when she was sold to Nigel Dean. She was sold again and substantially refitted. Rowan Yacht Services of Hoo undertook the work over three years; also fitting the Yanmar 57 HP engine and new tankage. Her first trip thereafter was to the 2004 Classic Boat Regatta and she was based in Cowes for some years thereafter.

In her current ownership SWANILDA has enjoyed another substantial refit at the Elephant boat yard in Bursledon – indeed a virtual rebuild with the original mahogany planking below the waterline replaced with iroko and a completely new interior. In 2012 she crossed the Atlantic both ways.
