PETER NICHOLLS YACHT BUILDERS
We have been building steel boats for 48 years since the company was founded as Peter Nicholls Steel Boats in 1973. We have vast experience in designing and building a variety of steel boats, so please browse our site for what you need. Peter Nicholls and his business partner Roger Baileff still actively run the Company.
All our boats are ideal for serious long term cruising:
We offer a range of Dutch Barges and Thames barges and other wide beam barges including our Europa 51 to 65 and the Peter Nicholls Inspection Launch. Our FCN Barge is fully seagoing to category B RCD.
We can also offer Huffler 35 and 40 motor sailer which is equally happy inland or offshore. Our newly introduced Huffler 56 can be seen now nearing completion.
Our steel boat range also includes our Renegade round bilge ‘Blue Water’ sailing cruisers, our Mistral chined fast sailing cruiser together with boats specifically designed with disabled people in mind.
Many thanks for sending Roger & Nick down. Without their help it would have been impossible to get the tank repaired, our yard wanted to cut it up in situ....A number of boat owners in the Marina and the Club were most impressed at the help you gave, bearing in mind that we have had the boat for some ten years." - George and Pat Gooden, owners of Geldeloos, their Huffler motor sailer.
One of the joys of owning a Nicholls-built boat is that wonderful sense of security that comes from being comfortably cocooned by excellent design & craftsmanship" - Sally Jenkins, owner of FCN Seagoing Barge.
