Nicholson 30 For Sale

bandito image001Bandito  - Reduced to £9,000 

Well known Sussex Yacht club boat for sale due to current owner for 10 years upsizing.

This 1974 Nicholson 30 was built originally for the ½ ton cup. Bandito is a competitive, cosy 5 berth Cruiser racer whatever the handicap scheme.

  • IRC 0.863
  • PY 989
  • VPRS 0.892
  • LOA 8.84
  • Beam 2.98
  • Draft 1.72
  • Displ 3.25 tonne

Used extensively for cruising and club racing from Shoreham with regular sails to Fecamp and the Solent, she also won her class in the 1982 Royal Escape Race.

Bandito has been extensively upgraded over recent years and really is ready to go with all possible major jobs completed fairly recently. Always serviced every year when out of the water from January to March. Recent good 2013 survey with any items corrected already. She will hold her own in any fleet on handicap and really is a potential ‘Bandito’ in the right hands.

Great Test by Sailing Today in 2008. Currently in a cradle at Sussex Yacht Club so easily viewed.
