Broker's Comments

The Nelson 40 / Weymouth 42 is an impressive yacht. Designed and manufactured for providing excellent sea keeping , safety and protection. giving the fortunate owner the confidence to explore and make dreams a reality.
this particular example is the one used at the original boatshow and features on the brochure cover for the Halmatic Weymouth 42.
She has been with the current owner for 12 years, was involved in and oversaw the re-fit and engine rebuild in 2003 and has maintained her on an annual basis.
She has been used for the original design intention, long passages to south west, Ireland and west coast.
Now it is the time of someone else to continue the adventures..

This Nelson Weymouth Nelson 42 has been personally photographed and viewed by Ian Welsh of Boatshed Poole. Click here for contact details.
