Broker's comments

This Nelson 32 is a great example of a vessel that has grown with the times. The current owner has rebuilt the vessel from the hull up, the deck, superstructure, fittings and all installations have been replaced over time. The vessel is equipped with a second engine. All vital systems have also been duplicated. The layout is very well thought out with storage space in all possible places. Despite its size and open character, the ship is very suitable for long voyages. For example, due to the two cooling facilities, freezer and central heating. You are welcome to visit her at our sales office.
