Tivoli | Nicholson 32
A tried and tested blue-water cruiser, with a formidable reputation for seaworthiness. Particularly easy to handle and suited to short-handed cruising. A truly versatile and exceptionally high quality yacht.
The Nicholson 32 was designed in 1962 by Peter and Charles Nicholson of Camper & Nicholsons, then one of Britain’s most prestigious custom boatbuilders, as a good value mid-sized cruising boat. The Nicholson 32 was the first time the company had set up series production, and early boats were completed by an aircraft company under contract, as Nicholson’s yard was not set up for mass production.
The Nicholson 32’s long-keel hull was a development of the wooden South Coast One Design hull form, and was aimed as a cruiser-racer type. The waterline length of 24 ft was at the time the minimum allowed to compete in offshore racing events.
The hulls were all moulded by Halmatic, and from 1966 onwards the boats were both moulded and completed by Halmatics. Few other yacht designs of this size have remained in production for such a long period.
Tivoli is available from March 2018.
