Seaward Nelson 42


Seaward Nelson 42 Pilot Boats and Service Launches

A good number of Nelson 42 pilot boats and service launches are providing sterling service, day in and day out, around the world. They are noted for their exceptionally soft ride, excellent handling in difficult sea conditions and for their predictable handling during ship boardings. They are built to Classification Society-approved drawings and are fitted-out to comply with the customer’s local flag approvals.

Each new Seaward Nelson 42 Pilot Boat benefits from the decades of experience that the company has in the design and build of this type of specialist craft. Robustly built, well-fendered and produced with maintainability in mind, they provide their operators with the ideal tool for this particularly demanding job.

The Seaward Nelson 42 is available with a fixed or resiliently-mounted wheelhouse, with seating for 6 or 8 and a choice of forward or aft raked screens. Various engines options are available, providing operating speeds up to 25 knots.

Seaward also builds a Service Launch version of the Nelson 42, ideal for coastal patrol and multi-role applications.
