Broker's Comments

This Nelson 42 is a rare example for the reason that she is probably in better structural and mechanical condition than when she was built!
The current owner has maintained her to the highest standards. To see her on the sea, ploughing through a force 6 is a sight to behold.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
