The Camper and Nicholsons yard in Gosport, England has built some of the world's finest yachts, the J Class Shamrock and Endeavour among them. They are renowned for the quality of their workmanship. The Camper and Nicholsons 44 is a slightly stretched version of their 42. The extra two feet allow for a walkway providing access to the aft cabin from the main cabin. Reportedly seven 44's were built.
CLAN OF SHEILA'S current owner, a retired engineer with 25 years of hands-on experience in ocean engineering, has logged more than 3,300 hours of his own labor.on her. She represents a great opportunity to acquire a fine yacht of a design that only rarely becomes available. She did not launch this year and is stored on land.
Note: A number of photos of the boat taken on 9/16/13 have been added to this listing.

Seven berths, four in two double staterooms, two on a convertible dinette settee, and one on the port settee. All are fitted with leecloths. Head-room is 6ft 4in throughout. All joinery is of selected melamined teak with other visible surfaces lined with washable vinyl. Cabin soles are of white seamed teak plydeck. Locker doors are flush with finger rings and internal catches. Fiddles are fitted to all shelves and working tops. Starting forward and moving aft we find: The forward stateroom has a large double V berth with s.s. water tank and stowage below. There are port and starboard wardrobes and fiddled shelves outboard of the berths. Access to the forepeak, which holds the anchor rode, is through a teak hatchin the foreward bulkhead. A sliding teak door separates this stateroom from the foreward head. The foreward head is a full-width moulded GRP compartment, easy to clean and fitted with a Blake Levac toilet, shower and wash basin. The floor is a teak shower grating with shower tray underneath. Lockers are fitted under the wash basin and outboard of the toilet. Over the wash basin is another locker with sliding mirror doors. Windows are fitted with opaque perspex panels. A Tannoy vent and two-speed extractor fan are fitted. A sliding teak door separates this head from the saloon. To starboard the saloon has a U shaped settee which may be converted to a double berth. It has stowage space under and bookshelf and lockers outboard. The aft end of this settee serves as a seat for the chart table which has a platform for a computer and stowage for charts and navigational equipment. Electric switch panels, radio and radar display units are over and outboard of the table. The teak saloon table is located between the starboard and port settees and has large drop leaves so that diners may use either one or both settees. House batteries are securely fastened under the port settee. Lockers and a TV receiver are located outboard of this settee. At the aft end of the saloon is a s.s. ladder with teak treads to the center cockpit. Engine and generator batteries are securely fastened in a box under the ladder. GRP water and fuel tanks below the saloon sole occupy all available space over the keel. Running aft from the saloon is a corridor with the engine room, a formica counter, and a wet locker to starboard and galley to port. The corridor ends at a teak door to the aft stateroom. Stepping inside one sees a dressing table with drawers and mirror to starboard fitted against the forward bulkhead. Next is a door to the aft private head. Then to starboard running all the way aft is a modest sized double bed. Under this bed is a large top loading holding plate freezer. Beside this bed is a curved settee extending to the port side, behind which is a hatch providing access to the rudder actuators and a rudder post fitting for the emergency tiller. To port are large lockers with sliding doors, a shelf area, and a large hanging locker. Berth mattresses here (and in the forward stateroom) are 5in foam covered with cloth. Settee cushions here and (elsewhere) are upholstered in beige nauga-hide. The private head is a moulded GRP unit fitted with a Blake Levac toilet (electric or manual pump), shower, and wash basin. The floor is a teak shower grating with a shower tray underneath. Cupboards are located beneath the wash basin and a mirror is fitted above. Lockers with shelves are located above the toilet. The window is fitted with an opaque perspex panel. A Tannoy vent and two speed extractor fan are fitted.
To port is the galley. A gimballed Calor propane stove has two burners, a grill, and oven. Next aft is a double s.s. sink and formica counter with drawers, cupboards, and microwave under, and cupboards over. The galley is fitted with a Goiot opening window and an extractor fan. At the aft end is located a large front opening refrigerator. Together with the aft stateroom freezer the refrigerator utilizes a new Frigomatic condenser in the engine room cooled by a heat exchanger plate outside the hull.
Mast and Spars
The masts, booms, and spinnaker pole are of heavy gage gold anodized alloy. Both masts are deck stepped and sound deadened. They have external luff tracks and sliding goose necks. The main is tapered, mounts 7 cleats, a Lewmar No 2 main halyard winch and a Lewmar 40 genoa winch. It has a spinnaker pole track and fittings for spinnaker gear. The main boom has roller reefing gear and internal outhaul tackle. The mizzen mast has 5 cleats and a Lewmar 8C halyard winch. RIGGING: Standing rigging is of 1x19 s.s. wire with swaged eyes on top and swaged studs into turnbuckles with clevis jaws at bottom. Sail savers are fitted at the spreader ends. Alloy tubes are fitted over all turnbuckles. The main backstay is bifurcated with a monkey plate. Mizzen backstays terminate at deck level with block and tackle for easy release to permit passage of the mizzen boom. Pinrails are mounted on main and mizzen shrouds for securing running lines. The forestay is terminated at the stemhead fitting and mounts Harken roller furling gear. There is a shorter forestay usually stowed along the starboard main shrouds which may be terminated at the windlass base plate to accept the storm jib luff hanks. The main halyard has a wire tail to minimize slackening of the luff. There is also a two block tack downhaul and a topping lift for both the main and the mizzen. Two signal halyards are fitted to the main spreaders.
Mainsail, roller-furling genoa, hank-on storm jib. spinnaker with snuffer, and mizzen. All sails 333 gm/sq mm (8 oz) by Butler Verner except Hood storm jib.
The Perkins N.A. 4-236 lowline engine provides 62 SHP at 2250 rpm, 72 SHP at 2500 rpm, and 82 SHP at 2800 rpm (short time only). She is fitted on resilient mounts and drives through a P.R.M. 1.96:1 reduction reverse gear box. The 1.75in dia drive shaft is carried in a rubber cutlass bearing to a bronze 3 bladed propeller, 22.5 in dia by 12.5 in pitch, R.H. rotation. An automatic fire extinguisher is mounted in the engine room.
Hull and Deck Layout
Both hull and deck are heavy GRP mouldings to Lloyds requirements by Halmatic Ltd. As a moisture barrier the hull has five coats of the 2000E/2001E Interprotect System. Four coats of ACP antifouling paint were applied and then replenished each year with Micron ablative AF paint. The main deck and coachroof are of balsa core construction for strength and insulation. A special non-skid surface is cemented on the deck surface. The decks are uncluttered and there is a minimal amount of external teak. Four large integral scuppers are fitted with deck strainers. A long keel holds 8800 lbs of encapsulated lead and extends aft near the rudder skeg. The short space between the keel and the skeg is fitted with an open cage of s.s. rods designed to protect the propeller from the ever-present trap warps and other floating debris. The center cockpit sits directly over the engine room. It's GRP sole may be removed to permit extraction of the engine. It is insulated against engine noise. The large cockpit seats seven comfortably on teak decking which may be covered with the custom cushions. The steering position on the centerline aft allows full use of the entire cockpit area and provides an ideal control position. A 30in nylon coated destroyer type wheel with glove on a central pedestal drives through gear boxes and torque tubes to the main reduction gear aft. A wheel brake is fitted. A Sestrel Major binnacle type compass with red lighting sits atop the pedestal. A dark blue Sunbrella dodger protects against rain and spray. A matching bimini top may be erected for further protection and sun shade. The cockpit floor is a teak grate. A deluge of water will flow down through the grate to the large empty volume above the GRP sole and will empty via the two cockpit drains. Washboards of teak and a transparent horizontal hatch sit above the ladder to the saloon. Instruments, speakers, and a Furono Loran control/display unit are safely sheltered in the forward coaming. Autopilot and engine controls are placed in the starboard coaming convenient to the helmsman. A large sail locker is readily accessible under the starboard cockpit seat. A center dining table is hinged to the pedestal and is stowed vertically out of the way when not in use. Foreward and side coamings are capped with solid teak. On each side is mounted a Lewmar 43C jib sheet winch and cleat. Aft coaming behind the helmsman. supports the mainsheet track and Lewmar 8C winches and cleats for the main and mizzen sheets. On deck, beginning forward we find a single rail three leg pulpit in 16g s.s., with halyard bar and side lights. Also a chrome plated cast bronze stemhead fitting with twin Tufnol rollers and keep pin. Next a drained well with flush hinged hatch for anchor stowage. Next a Francis 400 electric windlass with chain count gypsy and warping drum. For the rode we have on each side of the bow a crosstoed alloy fairlead with chafing strip and a 12in alloy mooring cleat. Up on the coachroof there is a transparent hatch over the V berths, then a mast step fitting which transmits compression down the mast pillar to the keel. Next another transparent hatch over the saloon just forward of the cockpit. On both sides of the coachroof there are two handrails of 1in dia s.s. through bolted. Also forward of the cockpit are seven acrylic windows. Aft of the cockpit a short coachroof supports the mizzen step fitting, a transparent hatch over the aft stateroom, and a s.s. handrail on each side. This coachroof has five acrylic windows.
The galley has backup hand pumps for both fresh and salt water. An auxiliary pump belt driven from the engine can draw either bilge water or salt water and direct this water either overboard or to a deck mounted hose fitting. The main fresh water electric pump draws tank water and directs it to the 12gal s.s. hot water tank, the galley, and both heads. Backup hand pumps for fresh water are fitted in each head. The hot water tank derives heat either from 120V heating elements or from a heat exchanger which draws hot water from the engine fresh water cooling system. The hot water is fed from the tank to the galley and both heads. A manual Henderson bilge pump is operated from the cockpit. An electric bilge pump may be operated manually (CB ON) or automatically in response to a lower float switch. An upper float switch will sound a high water alarm and activate the pump. This electric pump system operates regardless of the position of the battery switches. Both shower and galley discharge pumps operate electrically. The forward toilet may be pumped out manually overboard or to the holding tank. The aft toilet is pumped out manually or electrically into the holding tank which emptys via a mascerator pump either overboard or to the deck filler for extraction by a shore vacuum pump.
120 VAC power is derived from one of 3 alternate sources: shore power, a 4kw Yanmar diesel/Kohler generator mounted in the engine room, or a 1.8kw Prosine inverter driven by the 24V battery banks. This AC power may be directed to one or more destinations: A hot water heating element, a 24V battery charging system, and numerous receptacles throughout the cabin. These receptacles accept plugs from tools, TV, microwave oven, or other devices. 24VDC power is derived from one or both of the deep cycle house banks and/or the engine battery bank, or the engine driven alternator which charges the batteries. The 24V batteries power the engine starting motor, the inverter, numerous items such as pumps, lights, windlass, fans, refrigeration, etc. via the main CB panel. The 24V batteries also power a DC/DC converter which supplies 12V power via a switch panel to radios, CD player, cabin and cockpit receptacles, speed log, depth indicator, etc. There is also a 12V battery to power the generator engine starter and to accept charging from the generator engine dynamo.
