• Nelson 45'


    Now in her fifth ownership since originally being built in 1974 as ‘Ergo’.
    The second owner had her yard maintained and improved, regardless of cost and had new engines fitted in 1981. During this ownership she was known as Jomarnie.
    The third owner (also your broker, Steve Brenner) named her Tralaw and eventually sold her to the RNLI where she had new 300HP (each) Mermaid Diesel engines filled and approximately £90,000 spent on upgrading her to be used as a training vessel at the RNLI headquarters in Poole, where she became known as ‘Mentor of Poole’.
    Since purchasing her several years ago Mentor’s current owner has spent approx. £60,000 upgrading her to her current very high standard and is only selling her due to a change in circumstances.
    Equipped with twin 300HP Mermaid Diesel (low hours), electronic engine controls, 5/6 berth accommodation, generator, heating plus much more, makes Mentor a superb Nelson 45', at a very keen price.
    Part exchange considered.
