Broker's Comments

The fact that this Nelson 34 was commissioned for the Navy & has literally travelled the world is testament to the build quality, sturdiness & sea ability. Her complete refit in the early 90’s was well thought about & included at the time a twin screw conversion. These engines were then replaced in 2003 & have done very little work since! She has been out on the hard for a while now though & is starting to show the signs - the wood work could do with a varnish & overall a good clean. All of the hard work has been done though & with a bit of attention she would make an ideal safe cruiser.

Note: The owner is keen to sell & offers on the asking price may be considered.
