1990 Nelson 29

Hythe, Hampshire


Horatio is a very capable coastal and offshore cruising boat, based on the legendary Nelson 29 semi-displacement hull form, giving the softest of rides and looking after her crew even in the most difficult sea-conditions. Ideal perhaps for a yachtsman moving to power but still wanting to cross the channel and cruise the West Country. She was built by Landguard in 1990 and subsequently re-built by Bucklers Hard Boat Builders. A proper boat and a proper Nelson!
