Designed and built by Norman R. Wright & Sons as a lighthouse service launch and used as a 'Fast Survey Boat' for triangulation surveys and general lighthouse duties. Included in her duties was an expedition to Heard Island in the Southern Ocean. Following this time, Nell C was then used as a work boat for Norman R. Wright and Sons, before being converted to a pleasure boat.
Purchased by her current owner and totally restored in 2011, Nell C is now a greatly admired classic cruiser, which is often seen plying the waters of Moreton Bay. With a styling reminiscent of the popular Brisbane built launches seen around the Queensland waters during the 1960's and 1970's. Nell C is a unique motor cruiser which has been meticulously refurbished whilst maintaining her heritage at the same time as bringing up to date with the latest electronics, machinery and furnishing to ensure safe, reliable and comfortable cruising for a family.
With no expense spared during and after her restoration, Nell C is presented for sale in extraordinary condition and is only being sold as her owners are moving to a larger vessel to suit their growing family.
