Broker's Comments

Taking a striking position in the marina, the classic Nelson lines really stand out from the crowd.

No expense has been spared in her refurbishment and upkeep and this is reflected in the workmanship that can be seen.

With great lines, ample accommodation and large fuel and water capacities, she makes a comfortable long-distance boat.

She is currently out of the water for annual clean, anti-foul and new anodes - see the new underwater profile pics for details.

I can highly recommend taking a closer look to see all that she has to offer.
