Boat Description

Accomplished day cruiser. Thrilling sports boat. Chic superyacht tender.

With its combination of secure sea-keeping, intoxicating handling, incredible performance and elegant looks the DALE 23 can fulfil any role you ask of it.

A trip to a far off island in a steep morning sea, with a magnificent ride that will keep your passengers happy for mile after mile after mile – the skipper can be assured that even with a full load and a worsening sea, the Nelson heritage means the boat has ample abilities in reserve.

An afternoon of watersports – with eight guests onboard the electric acceleration still matches any sports boat for pull-out, and the solid hull provides a predictable wake.

Or if you want to just go for a ‘blast’ and revel in the water-gripping handling, well, why not – this is a boat that brings a smile to your face!

And in the evening, a refined way to ferry friends to a smart jetty where the timeless style announces your arrival in a way that no other tender could.
