'Unrivalled crafstmanship' is how the boating press describes the build of a DALE Nelson...
The DALE Classic 45 is a stunningly individual signature. It was a new design from the keel up, but with the same lineage as the DALE Nelson 38, the 45 offers everything the Nelson name stands fo with the relaxed style of the timeless design...
In excellent condition on brokerage from the original builders
"Roxy 12" is one of three boats we have built to the exacting requirements of her owner (other builds have been a Nelson 38 and a Corby 36 sailing race boat.
As a consequence of owing other boats, she has been lightly used and is only offered for sale due to other family leisure activities.
Buying through the original builders will give the new owner access to an unrivalled depth of knowledge of vessel and will allow a seamless transition to DALE's outstanding levels of customer service.
The hand-over will include extensive familiarisation trials to the level enjoyed by a purchaser of a brand new DALE.
Effortless performance and sea keeping
‘Open the throttles to discover DALE’s legendary Nelson hull lineage provides supreme comfort and security even in conditions you thought would keep you in the marina.’’
A Nelson semi displacement hull is designed to perform without drama. There is no ‘hump’ to climb, just a seemlingy effortless transition to planing speeds.
The reassurance of knowing the hull’s ultimate capabilities lie far beyond what you ever want to use, and a ride that gives the confidence to venture out in a wider range of conditions makes cruising irresistable.
Quality that takes you beyond luxury
"Roxy 12's" graceful lines are complemented with an ivory/dark blue colour scheme painted in Awlgrip to offer a superior finish and levels of durability.
With her interior of gloss American Cherry and blue leather upholstery you may well have your breath taken away by the levels of finish as you step aboard.
Look around the boat and wonder at the quality... the joinery is exquisitely fitted, every corner hewn from solid wood, every line and every curve kind to the eye, the leather hide stitched to perfection – the quality of a DALE Nelson 45 is like no other.
The helm and pilot seats are electrically powered to slide forward to provide additional saloon seating area when at rest. A powered bulkhead window gives the owner a choice of an enclosed or open aspect to the saloon, and 19" LCD TV electrically retracts out of sight. Additional onboard entertainment is provided by a DVD/Radio in the wheelhouse and a CD/Radio in each of the cabins.
The boat features Eberspacher DSL heating with outlets to all cabins and heads, and a de-humidifier draws air from the galley area.
Lower accommodation consists of a beautifully appointed and very spacious double berth owner's cabin with ensuite heads/shower, a twin berth guest cabin, and a comprehensively equipped galley.
The cockpit provides forward seating with storage beneath and and ample stowage in the cockpit sole with space for an inflatable dinghy.
An 8 man valise liferaft is included in the extensive list of safety equipment.
