The Nicholson 44 is an extended version of the 42 built to a Charles Nicholson design dating from 1975. In all seven Nicholson 44’s were built, Marili is a one off special with extended cockpit for day sailing and racing.


A top quality, special design Camper & Nicholson sloop offered for sale with some on-going work to complete. In 2010 EUR 60,000 was spent restoring the moulded GRP hull to A1 condition, together with a powerful bowthruster fitted, electric heads etc..

72hp Perkins Diesel, in need over overhaul.
Marili now requires some deck and interior refurbishment to bring her back to her former glory and is offered at an extremely realistic price for a quick sale.
