Type: Classic Nelson 40

Designer: TT Boat Designs Ltd

As a custom boatbuilder, we are equally happy to utilise the expertise of our in-house design team or work with a designer of your choosing. Our Classic Nelson 40 is a great example of how Cockwells collaborates with a renowned firm to produce a tailor-made vessel.

Developed from an Arthur Mursell design, we have handcrafted the bespoke interior of this high-end cruising boat from the finest materials to the client’s specific brief.

Constructed from strip-planked cedar, the hull is sheathed with glass fibre, impregnated with epoxy resin and externally finished with a two-part paint system.

With a solid teak deckhouse and toughened glass windows, the deck is constructed from fully-swept teak with a sub-layer of 12mm marine ply sheathed in epoxy to increase structural integrity.

A fore cabin with two berths offers generous storage space; an on-board water system feeds the electric toilet, shower and hand basin; a fully-equipped galley includes a dinette that converts into a double berth; and the airy saloon provides seating for six or an additional sleeping area to provide six berths in total.

Driven by twin screws powered by diesel Volvo D4 225hp marine engines, this vessel can reach a maximum speed of 24 knots and a cruising speed of 16 knots.
