The Lord Nelson 35 is a yacht of unmistakable character, a unique blend of the charm and romance of yesterday and the comfort and modern convenience of today. Like the North Sea sailing ships in her heritage, she is built with long range cruising capability in mind. Her spacious and rich interior establishes her as a yacht with distinct style, comfort and elegance. She is engineered for reliability, built for seaworthiness and designed with classic sheer lines, canoe stern and overall traditional good looks.
The LORD NELSON 35 captures the imagination of all who view her. She is designed with a modified full keel underbody and an efficient cutter rig that allow this well balanced yacht to sail easily to weather. Her oversized rudder furnishes stable downwind tracking and responsive steering. A fine entry and clean rounded forward sections enable the LORD NELSON 35 to move smoothly into head seas while her beamy aft sections provide stability and effortless achievement of hull speed.
This is a yacht of superb structural integrity, insuring years of safe and trouble free cruising. The hull is built of solid fiberglass. The decks are also solid fiberglass re-enforced with a unique FRP stringer system so there is no concern regarding deck core delamination. An important feature of LORD NELSON’S hull is an integral molded-in rub rail, incorporated into longitudinal stringers, which gives the hull immense strength. The hull and cabin have been insulated to provide moisture and temperature control.
The LORD NELSON 35 is perfectly suited for long range cruising in the most demanding offshore conditions. Few yachts built today can match her close attention to the primary design considerations of strength, seaworthiness, comfort and safety.
