This fabulous DALE NELSON Classic 45 was built by us for her present owners few years ago without regard to cost, and is the newest of our boats offered for sale. One look at her extensive specification which includes many upgrades and extras reveals how much care and thought has been lavished upon her. She has been regularly maintained as she was built, with no expense spared. She has only been lightly used.
Built with no expense spared and maintained in the same vein, "Lady Jennifer" offers an opportunity for her new owner to acquire an excellent example of a boat that has been described by the boating press as 'achingly beautiful'.
The DALE Classic 45 was a new design from the keel up, but with the same heritage as the legendary DALE Nelson 38, the 45 offers the supreme sea keeping abilities that the Nelson name stands for, whilst the painstakingly hand crafted quality is truly breathtaking.
Buying "Lady Jennifer" through the DALE Nelson brokerage will give the new owner access to an unrivalled depth of knowledge of the vessel and will allow a seamless transition to DALE's outstanding levels of customer service.
Please note the name "Lady Jennifer" will not be transferred to the new owner.
The hand-over will include extensive familiarisation trials to the level enjoyed by a purchaser of a brand new DALE.
A legendary hull lineage
‘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 seemingly 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 irresistible.
The newest Classic 45 on the market
"Lady Jennifer" is the newest DALE Nelson Classic 45 on the market and her next owner will benefit from her original high spec bespoke build which includes many upgrades and extras - her interior fit out is a stunning signature of DALE's quality reflected in her American Cherry and cream leather interior.
Quality beyond luxury
As you step aboard "Lady Jennifer" the solid American Cherry conveys a sense of quality that you only see on a hand-crafted vessel, with a maritime heritage that can be matched by few others.
Looking at the equipment list and feeling the way she handles confirms that this sense of tradition marries perfectly with modern technology to give you the performance and sea keeping that so enthuses the boating press.
