Wooden Ships Comments on this Camper and Nicholson sloop

Designed and built by Camper and Nicholson in 1960, built to Lloyds 100A1 and very typical of many C&N boats at that time.  She is a well balanced full keel yacht with a short counter stern and nicely radiused transom, sweet but not excessive sheer line with eye catching coachroof design incorporating a doghouse to increase headroom below decks.  Her cockpit is particularly attractive and well designed giving shelter and safety for the crew while also being easy to work from.

Bought by the present owner in 2008, she has undergone two major refit periods in a specialist boat yard, most recently in 2016/2017, which involved replacement of keel bolts, strap floors and bottom planking, lots of refastening of the hull, new engine, mast and rigging plus new sails.  She competed in the 2009 Fastnet race and won the Iolaire Trophy for the oldest entry in the race.

She is a very well equipped yacht with up to date navigation and safety equipment, fresh from an extensive refit last year and ready to go sailing.

Very thorough survey from 2017 and a complete log of the work carried out in present ownership are available.
