Ryan and Sons 54ft Cruiser "Lord Nelson"

Print

$129,500 MAKE AN OFFER

REDUCED AGAIN! MUST SELL! Strong, spacious go-anywhere expedition vessel in excellent condition. Huge refit undertaken over the past ten years to create a seriously good liveaboard. From the keel up, the owner of “Lord Nelson” has spared no expense to create his dream cruiser. Some of Tasmania's best tradesmen have worked on her and she is now ready to cruise off into the sunset, around the Kimberleys or to explore the most remote parts of Tasmania. Sadly health issues mean the current owner won't be aboard to realise his dream but a new owner will enjoy the result of this massive project. Owner keen to sell and will consider reasonable offers.

Freshly antifouled – FEB 2020.
