Broker's comments

The Nelson 40 Pilot is one of the most iconic pilot boats ever designed and built. Used as an actual pilot boat by the Belgium customs, the Nelson retired and was fully stripped and rebuilt (superstructure, interior, generator, engines, equipment) in 2005. After being purchased by the current caring owner she got all the loving care; repaint the exterior and woodwork in 2015 and reconstructing the hull below the waterline in 2016 with 5 layers of fiberglass/epoxy (3 years guaranty left). This Nelson 40 Pilot is probably the best kept Nelson on the marked and must be seen!
