    Dale Nelson - 38 Motor Cruiser for sale

    Motor BoatsCruisersavailableDale Nelson

    Nelson - a name that inspires confidence and enthusiasm for the sea. Since the 1960's Comdr. Thornycrofts seagoing designs have graced our waters as police and pilot vessels the world over and subsequently those of TT Boat Designs (Arthur Mursell) thereafter - and supremely capable they are too! 'Out of the Blue' is a Dale Nelson 38 taking essentially a working hull and the builders understanding of todays preferences, have libralised the interior to provide a comfortable and refined living environment. This example has been well maintained and much improved by her current ownership. She will cruise comfortably at more than 20 knots and cope with our typical sea conditions with ease. This is a stunning vessel but must be seen and more importantly appreciated in the environment she performs best - the sea!
