1986 Lord Nelson Victory Tug

Anacortes, United States


!!! Fantastic Opportunity !!!

Here is your chance to own rare head turner. "Cielito", #51 out of 75, is a beautiful example of the famous Lord Nelson Victory Tugs. She has been well cared for and has some nice upgrades including a sSidePower bow thruster and Magna Sign true sign-wave inverter. She still retains all her original handcrafted hardware and stained glass windows and the charm that goes with them. A very capable traveler with 1000+ nm range she is also right at home taking your guests out for an evening wine cruise while they enjoy the protected walk around decks and her roomy accommodations. The U-shaped galley of much larger boats is right at place in her open salon area.
