Broker's Comments

Anyone who has owned a Nelson will readily confirm that they are serious boats designed and built for serious conditions. It is no coincidence that they are the preferred choice for pilot boats, customs launches and harbour masters the world over. This particular example is well found and in good order throughout. She has been lightly used by careful owners who have moved onto a bigger Nelson and are keen to sell. This boat is just about perfect for a couple wishing to explore the coasts of Europe in a sensible and seaworthy vessel. See "more photos" to view 29 internal and external photos of this vessel.
