Lovely 1961 clinker-built Norwegian motor-sailer for sale in Kent

[ad name=”intheboatshed-post”]



My friend Alan Thorne is selling his Norwegian motor sailer named Nissa. Photos of her can be found here:

She was built in 1961 and is maintained to a high standard. She has a long keel, 3ft 6in draft and 9ft 6in beam, on an overall length of 33ft. With a clinker hull constructed with mahogany planks fastened with copper roves and nails to oak frames, she’s designed to be a safe, easy-to-sail yacht with attractive accommodation – one could easily live aboard her. She has two berths in the forward cabin, one cosy double and one short single in the main cabin.

Alan has enjoyed several sailing trips on the East Coast of England, and Nissa appears in Classic Boat magazine (Novemberissue, page 7) as part of last year’s Thames Festival Regatta at St Katharine’s Dock, London. Nissa also won the Otterham Cup for classic Bermudan yachts in the 2009 Swale Match.

Engine-wise, she has a Westerbeke 35hp 4 cylinder diesel engine and a 45-gallon stainless steel diesel tank, and she also has the usual selection of instruments and equipment. The latest survey was in Nov 2007, and its recommendations were carried out in 2008 and 2009.

Nissa is lying a berth in Oare Creek, Faversham, Kent, and is priced at £16,500 To view or sail her, call Alan on tel 07865091155.
