35' Camper & Nicholsons
Photo 1 of 13
The Nicholson 35’ was built by Camper Nicholson Yachts of Gosport, England and designed by Ray Wall (one of his most sought after designs). The Nicholson 35' sloop has proven to be a very capable and comfortable offshore cruiser. The current owners (second owners) have had “WISP” since 1990 and cruised the Florida coast, the Bahamas and the Exuma Islands. “WISP" is available and we invite you to come see the very hard to find (in America) Nicholson 35', "WISP".

When the current owner purchased 'Wisp' the original cap rails were made of teak. Each side was constructed of two lengths (approx. 17 ft each) of teak with only one joint amidships. The teak had not been well maintained, was thin, damaged and needed to be replaced. Long runs of unblemished teak were impossible to find. Only 6 ft lengths were available, which meant there would be 6 joints in each 35 ft long cap rail – this was very costly, impractical and with the multiple joints, not attractive. Instead of using teak, current owner used aluminum. Not the traditional look but much stronger, more practical, functional and requires no maintenance.
The hull is fabricated of one piece fiberglass composite laminate. In 2004 the hull was stripped, blisters repaired, a new layer of glass applied from water line to bottom of the keel and then 5 layers of epoxy was applied. The decks and superstructure are an additional one piece fiberglass composite laminate. Non-skid is molded on the working areas of the deck. There is stainless steel bow rail, stern rail and stainless steel double lifelines. A stainless steel folding ladder attached to the transom.
