About this Nicholson 48


The Nicholson 48 is a great blue water yacht and ideal as a long distance live aboard cruiser. She has a powerful hull with attractive overhangs which provide a gratifying sailing performance combined with an easy to handle rig. The sheltered cockpit is an asset in hot climates, protecting from the sun, and in colder northern waters where it allows for safe pilotage whatever the conditions. The interior is spacious and comfortable with a luxurious teak finish. A superb ocean going sailing boat and upgraded.

MAGDALENA IS NOW ON THE HARD IN SWANWICK MARINA AND IS AVAILABLE FOR VIEWINGS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
