Wooden Ships Comments on this Nicholson Jolina Sloop

Jolina sloop designed by Charles Nicholson and built by Clare Lallows, Cowes in 1960.

The Jolina was popular and successful cruiser racer with a full keel, truncated counter and spoon bow with an elegant sheer.  The design hit a sweet spot in terms of size, pace and manageability making them a very successful class with many examples still sailing today.

This yacht was bought by the current owners in 2005 and has been steadily upgraded and improved over the years with the help of a professional shipwright who has been involved with the yacht and her owners since their purchase.

Since 2005 the complete rig has been replaced, deck and engine replaced, new sails fitted, hull re-caulked, keel bolts replaced and strap floors refitted.  On top of this the general annual maintenance work has been kept up to a good standard so she is a smart and well presented yacht.

January 2022 survey carried out and available upon request.

A smart and attractive yacht ideal for family cruising or classic regatta racing.  She has a very well documented history of maintenance work in the present ownership standing her in good stead for years to come.
