About this Nicholson 55

The reputation for toughness of the early GRP Nic 32 and the 35 led to their widespread popularity and success at the smaller end of the yachting spectrum. Drawing on that - and evidently some panache inherited from much earlier Nicholson creations; the Nic 55 must be the success story at the larger end. Of the twenty six 55s built only two others; LUTINE and RACER shared QUAILO’s particularly beautiful configuration. Twelve were bought by the Ministry of Defence at a key period in replacing their ageing windfall fleet for adventurous training. Time and again thereafter they considered upgrading but each time concluded their 55s were irreplaceable. Various layouts were available including aft cockpit, centre-cockpit, sloop or yawl rig - conventional or retroussé stern. These boats have been proven over and over again with "ADVENTURE" 2nd in the first Round the World Race and "QUAILO III" formerly BROADSWORD an Admirals Cup and Southern Cross team member. QUAILO III is ready for more adventure; her cockpit is huge; she sleeps 10 and as we all know this design is so capable that she seems almost to prefer it when the going gets tough – all with unmistakable English good looks and an almost rakish charm.
