Broker's comments

Excellent opportunity to be the next owner of this unique Nelson 45 with open cockpit. Good size pilothouse / decksalon with l-shape settee and open cockpit. Wide side decks and excellent 360 degree visibility. Sturdy, reliable Ford Sabre diesels and proven sea keeping performance for in- and offshore cruising. In detail this Nelson 45 shows her age so hence the lower asking price for a quick and uncomplicated sale. A good basis to let her shine again and show off her good looks and Nelson heritage.
