Acclaim is a 1970 Camper & Nicholson 55' Ocean Racer with wide teak decks and a warm wooden interior.

Acclaim is equipped with a sloop sail plan consisting of a good choice of sails from Acclaim's loft. If required, to make life a little easier, she has a brand new roller furler headsail system and the mainsail has also been fitted with full length battens. Lazyjacks will be fitted in the very near future.

The Nicholson 55 was designed by Ray Wall (C&N Design Office) as an auxiliary sloop. She was built in 1970.

The hull is constructed of GRP with timber decks and superstructure. She sports a mast head rig, with aluminium alloy spars and stainless steel rigging.

The engine has recently had a large overhaul and has 'never run so well'.
