Currency switch on CNB sailing yacht Bristolian
by Malcolm MacLean
The 29 metre CNB sailing yacht Bristolian, listed for sale by Adrian Nicolle at Nicolle Associates, has had a currency switch from euros to sterling. Bristolian is now berthed at Palma de Mallorca, where Adrian Nicolle says she will stay until she is sold.
“She is sparkling condition for the pre-arranged purchaser and broker viewings,” Adrian Nicolle told Boat International, speaking also of her “wonderful interior.”
Bristolian was sold in April 2012 and is back on the market. Built in aluminium by France’s CNB yard to a design by German Frers, she was delivered in 1989 as a high-performance luxury yacht. A custom interior by Francois Catroux of Paris accommodates eight guests in four double cabins.
This yacht for sale has a comfortable saloon with a dining area to port and lounging area to starboard and there is also the opportunity to dine al fresco in the cockpit.
In addition to her carbon rig and regularly updated standing and running rigging, Bristolian benefits from a sail inventory overhaul over the last two years from North Sails, which includes all new 3Di mainsail, 3Di racing jib, 3Di furling jib, 3DL jib top, and spinnaker staysail, A2, A3 and A5.
Since her last change of ownership in early 2012, this fast cruising/racing sloop has been professionally maintained by the best in the industry including Lyman Morse in Maine, Pegaso Yachts in Genoa, and Marine Power Services and Antigua Rigging in the Caribbean.
Lying in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, Bristolian is down from €1.495 million to £800,000.
