Lord Nelson

Lord Nelson featured at the Auckland Tall Ships Festival 2013.

Lord Nelson is the first tall ship in the world to have been designed and built to be sailed by people of all physical abilities on equal terms – from able-bodied to wheelchair-users.

Her many special facilities enable disabled crewmembers to take an active part in the running of the ship. They include, wide decks for wheelchair users, a speaking compass to enable blind people to helm the ship, power assisted hydraulic steering for those with limited strength and much more.
