Dale Nelson - Classic 45
"Unrivalled craftsmanship" in the words of the boating press...
The DALE Classic 45 was a new design from the keel up, but with the same lineage as the legendary DALE Nelson 38, the 45 offers the supreme sea keeping abilities that the Nelson name stands for, whilst the painstakingly hand crafted quality is truly breathaking.
Buying "Arlette" through the DALE Nelson brokerage will give the new owner access to an unrivalled depth of knowledge of vessel and will allow a seamless transition to DALE's outstanding levels of customer service.
The hand-over will include extensive familiarisation trials to the level enjoyed by a purchaser of a brand new DALE.
Effortless performance and sea keeping
‘Open the throttles to discover DALE’s legendary Nelson hull lineage provides supreme comfort and security even in conditions you thought would keep you in the marina.’’
A Nelson semi displacement hull is designed to perform without drama. There is no ‘hump’ to climb, just a seemlingy effortless transition to planing speeds.
The reassurance of knowing the hull’s ultimate capabilities lie far beyond what you ever want to use, and a ride that gives the confidence to venture out in a wider range of conditions makes cruising irresistable.
Originally built with no regard to cost
"Arlette" was a bespoke build for the present owners to a no-expense-spared specification with a blue leather and European oak / traditional rattan interior.
She has been maintained in excellent condition having been lightly used and is reluctanly offered for sale due to personal commitments preventing more regular use.
The hull was painted in 2013 with Awlgrip 2000 and shines as you would expect from this superior finish and is ready to provide first class durability and resistance to the effects of sunlight.
The underwater sections were painted with Coppercoat antifouling in 2013 which is anticipated to last beyond 2023 before needing a recoat!
Extraordinary hand crafted quality
As you step onboard "Arlette" you feel the depth of the the hand crafted quality imediately - the solidity of the build first strikes you, then look a little closer and you being to note the extraordinary attention to detail - all the little things that make living with a boat more reassuring and more covenient...
