Ron Holland designed the half-tonners “Silver Shamrock” and “Silver Jubilee” and won the half-ton cup.
He then developed the hull-design as a cruiser/racer for Camper & Nicholson to add to their leading range of luxury larger yachts as the “Nicholson 303”.
“Forza” and “Mystic” are matching 303’s built in 1978 and based on the Solent at Port Hamble and Port Grimaud in St Tropez bay, France.
They are the boats lightly used for many years for family cruising, and occasional racing, by a former owner of a successful Class 1 racing yacht.
Both “Forza” and “Mystic” are currently available for sale, owing to the advancing age of the owner, but the technical details and library of photographs and details are for “Forza”. Please view the library of photographs attached for an overview of the excellent current condition of the boat.
The details for Mystic are similar and available.
The 303 combines the excitement of a thoroughbred racer with the comfort of a family cruiser. The photograph above is of Mystic competing in the Nioularge (now the Voiles de St Tropex). Looks relaxed, but gained 2nd place.
Full surveyor’s reports on ‘Forza’ from 2007 and 2012 are available. This extract illustrates surveyor Richard English’s summary of its high standard.
“good example of this well designed and well-built offshore cruising yacht . . .has many innovative ideas . . .gives the impression of being a much larger vessel.”
“ . . . has been very well maintained . . .her topsides and decks, and particularly her interior, are all in exceptionally good condition . . .”
“She has a good inventory of modern navigational and safety equipment, together with the Furling Genoas and the Fully battened Mainsail . . . combine to make a vessel that is suitable for short handed, safe, long distance cruising.”
Most recent advertisement for a Nicholson 303 was for one based in the West Country and advertised for £18,000. It is not now advertised and no others appear to be currently available.
The 303 combines the excitement of a thoroughbred racer with the comfort of a family cruiser.
