The Big Ship

Is a Nicholson 39 Ketch built in 1979 by Camper and Nicholson, the oldest leisure marine company in the world. The company was originally a shipyard in Gosport, today Camper and Nicholsons has become a yacht and marina management company. The Big Ship is one of only 63 yachts of her type ever being built, has the hull number 59 and since she is amongst the first in the era of fibreglass a very strong, elegant vessel. Still slim and therefore fast for a cruiser. In 1979 she was an upmarket and quiet posh cruiser, that could go anywhere. She still can of course and will with us. Sadly, we have no sailing history of her. So who knows, where she has been already and what adventures she had. One thing is for sure, she changed names like other girls change boyfriends! Hope, she will be happy and finally settled with her new name, which will hopefully last forever now.

A New Scrabbler

We have exciting news and sad news at the same time. We have bought a new boat, a Nicholson 39 which is lying in Preveza, Greece. She's been renamed 'Scrabbler' to maintain the brand name. That means that the old 'Scrabbler' has had to be renamed 'Scrabbler II' and she is now for sale. We plan to sail Scrabbler to Lagos, Portugal over the summer and Scrabbler II will be hauled out in Lagos at the end of June. We're very excited about the new old boat and our trip in the summer but sad to say goodbye to our bonsai tall ship after all of our adventures.
