Dale and Berthon join forces

September 1, 2014

Dale and Berthon join forces - Dale Nelson 45 Classic

Dale Motor Yachts and Berthon International have been friends and colleagues for years.  Dale build the most extraordinary motor yachts and a number have passed through our hands. Dale is a family business like Berthon and has the same ethos of client care; when you own a Dale, not only do you own a superbly built and finished motor yacht with excellent seakeeping, you are also part of the Dale family.

Dale Nelson 38

The Dale Nelson 38′ is a superb cruising yacht, designed by the iconic TT Boat Designs and she is a truly benchmark yacht in ‘blue yacht’ circles. Together with her awesome seakeeping come good looks and surprisingly voluminous accommodation considering her hull shape which is designed for fast controlled cruising whatever the weather.  She takes her heritage from the pilot boats that you see the world over, with their distinctive low freeboard and teak (or rubber) badging on the hull.

The Dale 45′ is another TT Boat Designs yacht which quite simply out picnics the rest.  Aside from the superb good looks come sensible innards and a great cockpit.  If you are looking for volume and many bathrooms she is not the yacht for you but for family cruising, head turning and great performance, she ticks the boxes – she may not be large, but she is perfectly formed. We also like the drive, straight forward on shafts no jets, computer controlled docking or gimmicks.

Dale Motor Yachts looks after the pre-owned Dales that come onto the market, finding these yachts new owners to join the Dale family.  The brokerage fleet is based at Dale’s build facility in Wales where buyers can experience the yachts on the water, see where they are built and learn the philosophy behind them.

Berthon have now joined the Dale Nelson team and we are working with Dale on the sale of all pre-owned Dale Nelsons lending additional marketing support to the yachts that are on the market.  By joining forces we are able to offer the very best service to both owners wishing to sell and to purchasers and here at Berthon we are excited about this new development.  The first 2 Dales to be part of this new initiative are a brace of Dale Nelson 45’s –
