NELSON 18 classic diesel motor cabin cruiser Lying Hayling Island Portsmouth, afloat and in commision18 foot long motor cruiser, ideal for weekends, or fishing trips, the baby of the famous Nelson Pilot Boat range.Built 1988, Lister Alpha 3 cylinder 26hp water cooled engine, with all new pipework filters and auxilliaries – fuel pumps, injectors and more. Starter motor refurbed. Jabsco rebuilt. 2 bunks. Heads (portaloo ) compartment with door.I just asked my wife to describe her – one word – cosy.Until a few weeks ago I was doing her up for myself as a keeper, but our plans have changed. She is ready to go now, which is annoying due to lockdown.She has been greatly refurbed inside, new decor, gas cooker added, moew lighting, lots of new fittings. She now needs to be re-painted above the rubbber fender… I have made a start on this, hence the bits of filler that can be seen in the photo. If I don’t sell he I’ll keep working on her but the asking price will rise as the work is completed.She is lying at Hayling Island , available for viewing and test driving, covid and tide dependant.She can be trailed assuming you have a suitable large 4 wheeled trailer and a tow vehicle good for the guesstimated 2.5 tons. She is the rare CCF version…. every time I say she is the only one in existence, someone tells me there is another. She’s like marmite , people either lover or hate her looks . Some people say she looks like a tug (?), whereas I think she is reminiscent of a wartime MTB with that raised bridge and screen.I was out in her on Sunday and someone who I was unofficially racing said how purposeful she looked and how she cut through the water.provided someone buys her I will keep her free of charge until spring on my swinging mooring . Lift out at Hayling Yacht Company, at buyer’s expense or motor her away. Best really as a harbour boat, ideal for the Chichester and Langstone Harbour areas. In summer she’s fine to go outside according to weather conditions. She is listed elsewhere and may be withdrawn at any stage.
