Broker's Comments

Preliminary details awaiting confirmation by owner.

What can I say, Nelson are beautiful boats and exceptional sea keeping vessels. This Nelson with the superb accommodation and layout give such a comfortable and spacious surroundings all set in a solid hull and superstructure, it maintains a style and detail that all boat enthusiasts appreciate and with a length of just over 40 feet it is very manageable however feels larger on the interior. With the fly bridge helm set at the stern it feels such a pleasure with the world ahead of you. No one can fail to fall in love with her as I have. There may be some updates you would choose to suit your own taste however this really isn't necessary.
