Broker's Comments

If you're looking for a capable, blue water cruiser that is well proven, won't let you down in testing conditions and has just had over £20k invested in all the important stuff, look no further.

This lucky Nic Mk V has been spoilt rotten over the last 12 months with an extensive refit programme, including new standing & running rigging, a suite of new Jeckells sails (a fully battened main, genoa & cruising chute) and new canvas work consisting of a new flat pack with lazy jacks, a new spray hood and a new integrated cockpit tent.

To top this off, there's also an excellent new navigation fit that includes a radar and a cockpit mounted touch screen plotter.

Also supplied, but not fitted, is a brand new 'Genius' electric windlass (the wiring is already in place).

Although the deck could probably benefit from a repaint at some point in the future, the engine is relatively young, the upholstery is in good condition throughout and the accommodation is clean, dry and presented very well. Highly recommended.

These boat details are subject to contract.
