Thompsons and Thompson / Nelsons are good sturdy boats built on a commercial fishing trawler hull. The boats were built by Thompson and then the interiors were finished by the owner or another facility, so the interior finish and quality varies a lot. Nelson bought the molds from Thompson and completely finished the inside of their boats.

They are definitely coastal cruisers; easily cross from FL to the Bahamas; most certainly not a passagemaker.
