Nelson - 42
Valkyrie is a Nelson 42. Nelson boats have acheived world wide acclaim for their strength and seakeeping abilities. Although the 42 hull was designed for commercial applications (like all previous Nelsons), it's seagoing abilities make it a very suitable basis for a fine motor yacht with loads of accommodation. The 42 has more beam, more depth and more shape in the forward sections than the earlier boats and these features produce a hull that can not only carry the higher displacements but also give a drier ride and better handling in following seas. The powerful Twin Ford Sabre 240hp engines where replaced in 1988 and have plenty of hours on the clocks, but still going strong. She also has a very nice Aft Helm position with all the instruments repeated and a large sunning deck.

This boat is well known for being an excellent Sea Boat. Extremely roomy and comfortable, upgraded where necessary and annually maintained. She is a very cozy boat in good condition. You could update her here and there, if you liked, but really you could carry on enjoying her where the retiring seller is leaving off.
