A classic one off design by Peter Nicholson.
The accommodation for 6 is arranged with 2 main berths and 2 pilot berths in the central saloon, a navigators berth aft and one foreward in the forecastle. The sides of the pilot bunks drop down for easy access. The forecastle also doubles as a rope and spinnaker store. Just foreward of the mast is a hanging space to port and the toilet and washbasin to starboard.
The boat is equipped with a Force 10 Cooker with two burners, oven and grill, a Force 10 cabin heater, Jabsco marine toilet and two manual bilge pumps (one in the cabin and one in the cockpit). An original chromed brass Whale hand pump vacates the galley basin. The Sony Radio/CD can also play music from an iPhone or iPad. Next to the comfortable chart table is an easy to use switchboard in which there are two 12v sockets for charging handheld VHF, chart plotter or phone, and a battery monitor. Winter all over and Summer cockpit covers. Sea Tiger anchor winch, chain/rope and two anchors.
The fresh water cooled Yanmar 2GM20 has been regularly maintained since being installed in 2001. A two bladed 16" x 8" bronze propellor is driven directly through an Aquadrive flexible coupling and a maintenance free PSS seal by the engine and gearbox mounted infront of the companion way steps. This means there is all around access to the engine for servicing. The Halyard exhaust system can divert warm water through the hull underwater to make for an extreemly quiet operation.
