I have seen a number of the LN with BMW diesels - certainly an unicorn for parts etc.

The preferable power is cummins 4bt - probably around 150hp.

Engine room is quite the magic trick with a foldable kitchen to access

BMW would be a mood breaker for me because of parts and service. The Cummins would be great IMO

Well Tom, that didn't end well! After an inquiry question the Juneau owner suggested that I seek other options. So- No Sale To Al.

Soooo, you are looking for a Lord Nelson Victory tug/ trawler for free?
We all accept we will generally lose when we sell our boats but, no one is going to give you their boat.

You have a set price, tell the owner what it is, he is given two options of saying 'yes' or 'no'. If he says 'no', move on. No haggling involved.

If you want a free boat, then I suggest you look for a 'project boat' then, devote your life and your money bringing the boat back to life.

I don't think he wants one for free. I think Al likes these boats and would like to own one. How did you come to the conclusion he wanted one for free?

In our little ol' Port Townsend Yacht Club we have four Lord Nelson 37s! I'll bring it up at our next meeting in case any of them are interested in selling.

That 'free' was a figurative manner.

He just cant find one to buy at his price.

I am offended by your post. It is totally rude with no foundation for the conclusion you have drawn and suggested as the actual situation or facts

With this said, were you in need and I were in the area to extend assistance, knowing you for your post, would assist.
Al

PS: "He just cant find one to buy at his price."
Absolutely misspoken and without foundation.
and factual knowledge.

yes the cummins is preferred but I have sold some with Yanmars and many with the original BMW engine, last one I sold with BMW engine, seller had a whole backup engine with 300-400 hours on it he bought thinking parts would be hard to source, they were not and that engine went to new owner.

They are great boats, too bad more were not produced.

Encouraging to hear. Hoping to secure a known source for reference should one with show up. Would think any potential seller would have such so not too worried up to that point. Yes, the molds exist and the demand would seem warrant a second run of the 37s. Thanks.
