Nicholson 38 “Panta Rhei II”for sale

Panta Rhei II is a Nicholson 38, built in 1974.

In her day, the Nicholson 38 was considered a superior yacht. In a motorsailor trial she came first in the category ’emphasis on sail’ and she was praised for showing superior craftmanship. 134 Nicholson 38s were built, the last one in 1976 when she was considered too expensive to build. The competition offered cheaper yachts in the category and Camper and Nicholson did not want to lower the standards to meet the prices and the demands of the market.

The Nicholson 38 is a ketch. She has a very safe, sheltered center cockpit and she sleeps 6 in three cabins (aft cabin, saloon and fo’c’sle)

Panta Rhei II is one of the later Nicholson 38s. Her build number is 128 and, like all 38s, her hull was bult by Halmatic.
