• Nelson 29'


    Superb Nelson 29 built by Seaward Marine in 1994. She benefits from a pair of 170hp Yanmar diesels giving a good turn of speed.
    These hulls draw on all the experience of TT Boat Designs and Arthur Mursell. They are probably the best sea going hull you can buy and are safe and easy to handle. The hull complies with the Recreational Craft Directive for wind speeds up to Force 8 and wave heights up to 4 meters.
    This boat has just had an extensive refit including a new spray hood and soda washing to strip off all the old antifouling.
    Lovely cruising motorboat, presented in very good condition. Recent refit.

    Owners Comments

    Very good example of the model which has just had a substantial amount of money spent to bring her up to a high standard.
