Around 150 'Nic 38's, were built between 1966 and 1973, and due to their solid construction and continuing ability to charm they are to be found all round the world, with at least one completing a full circumnavigation. This one is in sound condition and was fitted with a new Beta 37 HP engine in 2002.
The main cabin has a Reflex diesel cabin heater. Camper & Nicholsons bought the design rights in the mid sixties from the American designer John Alden.
Originally conceived by C&N as a motor-sailer, this label was quickly forgotten when she won the yachting World One of a Kind Rally for motor-sailers being by far the fastest under sail and sail and power combined.
The accommodation comprised of three separate cabins and two heads and the standard of finish was top class.
Many 38s had teak laid decks laid on the GRP deck.
Production ceased in the mid-70s when they were found to be too expensive to build. In pretty much original and unspoilt condition inside with good quality woodwork as expected with a Nicholson.
