Seakers of Weymouth is delighted to present this classic Nelson, "Gazelle". A Twin-Engined Cruiser, that has been kept in excellent condition by the current owner.

Twin Cummins 185HP engines give a cruising speed of 12 knots with an economy of 12L per hour per engine. Nelson boats are renowned for their sea-keeping qualities and this example is no exception.

Broker's view: "A really excellent example of this classic British Cruiser, this boat is mechanically sound and in excellent cosmetic condition. Early viewing is recommended."

This Nelson 42 was built by Automarine on the Isle of Wight in 1970, originally configured and used as a Pilot Boat before being re-configured as a Cruiser in 1996.
