The Nicholson half-tonner was designed by Ron Holland in 1976 to the Half Ton Cup IOR rule, and had considerable racing success. This 1978 example has the later design of iron keel with lead bulb. She is both fast and exciting to sail with race crew or shorthanded. All lines lead to the cockpit  from where both white sails can be reefed.





Layback's accommodation has been updated to include five good berths and a galley superior to one normally found on a boat of this size. All upholstery and head linings have been replaced during 2014 / 16. All standing rigging was replaced in 2015 along with the addition of a new genoa and cruising chute. Layback has been lifted out annually for a minimum of 4 weeks for maintenance. She has been antifouled and fully serviced 2016 ready for the season. A 2016 survey is available.

In the seven years of current ownership continual improvements have been made, whilst successful club racing and Irish Sea cruising have been enjoyed in this very capable boat.
