Broker's Comments

Nelson 34s are found working and cruising all over the world. Used as police boats, patrol boats, pilot launches, pretty much anything you need a robust manoeuvrable sea boat for, these boats have done it. This was a Customs launch, built with this in mind she has very accessible decks, oversized guardrails and an extended wheelhouse.

The engines have been checked over and are found to be running well, they are due a service based on time rather than hours run and she will require some work to get her back to her best. The gimballed gas stove is available as is the original chart drawer and bathing platform.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
