Panta Rhei II-2022

Aat Ruts has owned Panta Rhei II hull #128 since she was built in 1974. To be more specific, in 1974 Camper & Nicholson sold Aat Ruts a “partial assembly” and the interior was built by Aat Ruts. And as you can see from the photos below, Aat did a beautiful and unique job of outfitting Panta Rhei II. As of this writing, Panta Rhei II is for sale, and since hull #128 is the only Nicholson 38 still owned by the original purchaser, I wanted to honor his legacy by posting the photos that Aat shared with me.
