Clio – a Nelson 18

A mini pilot launch

Clio has come to us looking for a new owner. Originally built as a small pilot launch she is now a delightful compact weekender complete with flushing loo. You could happily cruise river or estuary with the occasional sea going outing as this is a robust little boat with a single diesel which can cruise happily at about 6 knots all days long. The engine was serviced in late 2018. There is a full inventory including a Garmin spped and depth sounder, nav lights, large cool box and the elaborate Jabsco sea toilet. The internal fabric and curtains are all in good order while the aft cockpit cover was added in 2017. The spray hood was fitted when the boat was refurbished and converted into a cabin cruiser in about 2012.

Clio presents well on her trailer with all the varnished wood in good condition. The BSS is valid until 2021 and there is a large blue file containing manuals etc. I am told that Clio was previously owned by the president of the Nelson owners club and it was he who planned the conversion. His use was light with just two months a year afloat and the rest of the time she was under cover.

Please give us a call to view on site at Beale Park boat store. This boat is sure to sell quickly so come and take a look as soon as you can.
