Equally suited to both leisure or professional use, this Nelson 18 motor launch would make a very attractive family day boat, work or fishing boat, club safety boat or yacht tender. Built and fitted out to a high standard just 5 years ago at a cost of well over £15,000, she has since been very little used in freshwater only. Her inboard diesel engine was fully rebuilt prior to installation, and offers both good fuel economy and plenty of power. She is also very manoeuvrable, being able to turn in almost her own length. Understood to be in superb condition throughout, bar one or two scratches in the gelcoat sustained during storage and which the vendor has not to date made any attempt to polish out, she is offered for sale due to lack of space. Altogether a very versatile and attractive little launch in excellent condition!
DELIVERY: Free delivery within Norfolk and Suffolk is included in the asking price, with delivery further afield at 50p per mile by negotiation.
TRAILER: The trailer pictured is not included in the sale but could be purchased separately if required at £2,000. It is deep dip galvanised, twin axle with all new running gear, brakes, suspension, wheels/tyres and hitch, and very low miles.
