Broker's Comments

As we all know Nelsons have a well proven reputation and following, and this Nelson 34 Supreme is no exception.
The hull was built in 1978 for an overseas government contract which was cancelled. Built as fast patrol boat / Interceptor, the hull was kept under cover storage until 1988/89 when she was converted into a six berth motor yacht. The hull was in as new condition for the conversion, for which the outfit was done to an exceptionally high standard though out.
She spent the first 15 years motoring around the English Channel , French coast , Belgium , Holland and the Channel Islands.

Truly a boat with a great pedigree and lots of character.
