Welcome S/Y Matelot

Southern Wind 80’ Deck Saloon

Available Winter 2008 - the newest addition to the Nicholson fleet!

A striking Bruce Farr designed deck saloon sloop, MATELOT is in mint condition - virtually a new yacht - having been used only for boat shows since her 2005 launching.  

The master suite, forward of the saloon, features a king size bed, sitting area, and desk/vanity.  The full beam master bath has an exceptionally spacious shower with a glass door and built-in seat. 

Aft of the salon are two en suite guest cabins with twin lower singles.  For maximum guest privacy, the crew quarters are all the way aft with separate access to the cockpit

Captain Angus Fuller and Chef Jessie Cuthbert ran very successful charter seasons for several years on the old Matelot, an Oyster 66 and Tearaway, an Oyster 56.   Angus was born in the UK in 1977 and took up sailing at the age of two weeks.  Since then he has logged over 120,000 sea miles including a race circumnavigating the world upwind (the wrong way ‘round). Captain Fuller has cruised the Caribbean extensively, the Mediterranean from the Balearics to Croatia, the east coast of the United States, the Galapagos and Norway above the Arctic circle.

Jessie, British, 29, trained at the Rosie Davies School of Cookery before joining Angus on charter yachts.  She describes her cooking as international ’whilst using all the best local ingredients cooked to the guests’ preferences.’  Jessie has also sailed all her life and was a trialist in the 470’s in the Sydney Olympics as well as Youth World Champion – twice! 

Angus and Jessie’s winning personalities and professional skills ensure that cruising and dining are of the highest standard.  On charter Matelot will have three crew.
