Broker's comments

When there ever was a safe motor yacht with heritage, the Nelson must be the prime example. Originally designed as the typical work- and pilotboat, especially the Nelson 42 "gets going, when the going gets tough". Constructed by Halmatic Ltd (who else) and completely fitted out by Dutch Atlantic yard, she is one of the better examples out there. She has numerous options, is well maintained and fitted with twin modern type diesels so you can cruise economically. So what is your plan? Cruising the French Canals, the Baltic Sea or do some comfortable European coastal hopping? She can do it all!
