Broker’s Comments

A fine example of a Camper and Nicholson 35, Doucier has been continually maintained

and upgraded by the current owners. Long fin with encapsulated keel, skeg hung rudder

and high ballast to weight ratio hull produce a comfortable cruising yacht with excellent

sailing performance. A recent new interior gives a fresh modern feel to the accommodation making her the best of both worlds, new and traditional. Viewing recommended. Now launched and in commission.
