From the moment you step aboard it’s evident that the Lord Nelson is built to the highest quality standards. Down below you'll discover beautiful hand crafted interior teak joinery that gives this vessel charm and character rarely found in boats today. Located aft to starboard is a double berth with large hanging locker and storage. Located to port is the U-shaped galley with double SS sink on centerline, Hillerange 3-burner propane stove with oven, DC refrigeration and excellent galley storage. There is a U-shaped dinette on the port side with seating for four to five people. Across from the dinette is a bench style settee with storage behind and chart table forward. Located forward of the dinette is the master cabin that has a spacious pullman berth with drawers underneath and large hanging lockers to starboard. The head complete with shower is conveniently located in the bow with an overhead deck hatch for wet sail changes.
