Broker's Comments

This Nelson started life on duty as a Pilot Boat in the Solent and like all of her ilk was toatally over built and superbly maintained. Today she is enjoying her retirement and is now in civy trim, but underneath she is still as solid as they come and with her twin V8 diesels she has got some punch left in her. I love these boats and if you want to know what its like to helm one in the rough stuff give me a call, because I had the pleasure a few years back. I better stop or I'll be buying this one at this rate. A serious boat for when the going gets tough.
