The Nicholson Bluewater 476 is a world class offshore cruising boat, capable of undertaking serious adventures in comfort and safety.

‘Elfin Lady’ was moulded by Colvic Craft to Lloyds specification and fitted out by her first owner (a Camper and Nicholson shipwright) to a very high standard, with interior joinery in East African Cherry and matching Teak Veneer. Offering a similar level of refinement and capability as the Nicholson 48, she is ideal for anyone looking for a robust cruising boat that will eat up the miles effortlessly.

The internal layout offers superb liveaboard comfort, while the powerful cutter rig and Hydrovane self steering promise surefooted passage making.

Elfin Lady has been professionally maintained during current ownership, and has benefitted from upgrades which include replacement standing rigging, new mainsail, new windlass and new heads.
