Broker's Comments

This vessel was built by Halmatic on their standard Nelson 40 hull and she is a former Trinity House Pilot Vessel.The hull is semi displacement which has been proven worldwide to be exceptionally sea worthy and is renowned for great stability in poor weather conditions.The hull is very heavily fendered all round with rubber D section fendering.The vessel is twin screw being conventionally driven by two 180hp Cumming diesels and the hull configuration makes the boat very manoeuvrable.The vessel has been MCA Coded Category 2 (6 passengers & 2 crew up to 60 miles from a safe haven (this would need re-activating) but it is also ideal for leisure use too and has been well maintained.
