Nicky Tam is an lovely example of the classic Camper and Nicholson 39 ketch. She was built in 1978 and has build no. 51. The Nicholson 39 is a fine bluewater, “go anywhere” cruiser and Nicky Tam is ready to go.
T2L forms issued by the British HMRC and the Croatian authorities both confirm that the yacht is fully taxed paid in the European Union and allowed free movement within the EU.
I purchased Nicky Tam in November 2002 and she has been continually upgraded since then.
Some of the major upgrades are:
The original engine was replaced with an Yanmar 4JH engine (55.3 HP, 39.7kW) in 2012. It as been serviced annually by the Yanmar engineer.
The standing rigging was replaced in 2009. The running rigging has been replaced as necessary and all is in good condition. Standing rigging has been checked and adjusted, where necessary, regularly by the riggers.
New genoa roller reefing fitted in 2015, new lazy jacks and lazy bag for block reefing main in 2016.
New cruising spinnacker purchased from Rolly Tasker in 2017/18.
New B&G plotter and AIS transceiver in 2018
Initially she was based in Genua, Italy and in 2006, we sailed to Croatia, where we are now based. We cruised extensively for 3 to 4 months every year in the Adriatic from Montenegro to Venice. She is presently in Marina Betina, Croatia, where I have kept her since 2009, an annual berth is available for her.
I am selling Nicky Tam fully equipped – including bed linen, bathroom linen, kitchenware, crockery, tools and spare parts. She will be anti-fouled in the spring of 2019 and will be ready to sail away.
