BLE LEGEND was conceived and built for Mediterranean use, offering a level of comfort that is unusual for a Nelson. She would also be at home in northern waters. Close cooperation between her owner, TT Boat Designs and her builder has produced a motor-yacht of outstanding quality. Professionally maintained by same full time skipper since new. She was built to the Lloyds 100 A1 classification.
With a light and airy oak interior she has superb accommodation. Owner’s “stateroom” forward, and two excellent guest cabins as well as a study, large galley and 2 crew cabins aft with separate heads.
Her main saloon is spacious and the seating area on deck is generous. Her engine room is easily accessible and well laid out.
One of the outstanding trademarks of BLUE LEGEND is her reverse transom which lifts hydraulically to produce an excellent day stowage area to allow for the easy launch and retrieval of her RIB and toys.
Her passerelle, also hydraulic, is carefully thought out and works effortlessly.
BLUE LEGEND takes the Nelson marque to another dimension. Her systems, safety features and detailing are second to none. She was substantially rebuilt in 2006, when the aft section of the yacht was extended to provide better crew accommodation, a larger galley and vastly enhances deck space and storage. The owner took the opportunity to upgrade her in all respects at this time by extending the yacht from 68’ – 80’, upgrading the plumbing, replacing the teak decks and totally repainting the yacht
