The Nicholson 39 is a proven & very popular cruising yacht renowned capable offshore cruiser.  With her modern styling & now familiar centre cockpit layout on deck, the Nicholson 39 offers significantly more living space below decks with two spacious double cabins, two heads & linear galley unlike anything else offered at that time.  ‘Capercaillie’ was built in 1977, currently owned by her present owner since 2011 & kept in Boulogne, France.  Viewings by appointment.

Selling your boat privately can usually be very complex and involve a considerable amount of your own personal time.  As your broker, we will work hard to facilitate the sale and to promote your craft accordingly to gain the best possible market audience.

No Broker Commissions on boats bought for cash.  We will consider most boats and make you a trade cash offer & look to transfer the money to your bank within 24 hours of agreeing a deal.  This is the quickest way to sell your boat.  We will consider most craft even if she isn’t in the best of conditions, just pick up the phone & talk to us
