• Nelson 44'


    "Intensity" was built at 43' LOA, originally manufactured at Halmatic for McLennan Marine to demonstrate their Night Vision Systems.
    As well as her twin Sabre 250HP diesel engines, she is equipped with two 7HP electric motors that drive the shafts quietly at up to 5 Knots so that the night vision system could be used by the Military or Customs owners in 'Stealth Mode'. A 20KVA generator is also fitted for battery charging.
    We believe 'Intensity' is the only 'Hybrid Nelson' built to date!
    The Nelson 44 pilot boat hull is a development of the renowned Nelson 40. Although used as a pleasure vessel for many years by its creator, Intensity would make an excellent work vessel or could easily be updated for further pleasure use.
    Note: The night vision system is no longer available.
