Peter Cole designed racers including an America's cup contender. The NI actually sails very well all things considered with its weak point being the high topsides. This adds to the excitement of docking in adverse winds and when sailing they don't point particularly high. I can't get past about 60 degrees apparent, but you learn to live with it.

The big con for me is low coaming height which can make you feel a little exposed in a rough sea, but there's ways around that. On the plus side you'll find the boat has a surprisingly dry ride. Just remember to close those portlights!

Re: Nantucket Island 33?

38's are as rare as hens teeth. There are a lot more 33's around though still not in great numbers. The reason is most likely, imo, is that they were initially designed for the charter industry. The 38 is really just a scaled up 33. I own a 33 and am fairly familiar with them so maybe able to answer any specific questions if you have any.

Pictures of your boat

Aussie Trekker,

I would be interested in pictures of both your hardtop as well as the stern rail installation. I have owned a NI33 (built in 1982/1983) in Southern California since the late 1990's. You can reach me at "glenndimit" at "gmail" dot "com".

I wish you best of luck with your ventures!

Mine was built in Australia by Commdore Yachts and was built to the USL Code (as it was back in the 1980's). After its current rest on the hardstand she'll be heading around the top end of Australia and back around crossing to some of the closer Pacific Islands. I have made many changes to her - some noticable some not - she now has a hardtop over the cockpit and full covers, a full stern rail system carries davits, radar, wind generator, HF ant, BBQ, solar panels and instruments. If anyone would like photos or info let me know.
ps - she carries the name "Aussie Trekker"
I own a Nantuckett 33 and i'm thinking about doing a total rebuild.
Mine is build in Taiwan in 1980 and still has the original teakdeck. I'm very interested in photos of the hardtop and the stern rail system.
