So I saw a boat like this the other day and didn't get a chance to talk to the owner. Does anyone have an idea what the make/model and year this beast may be? I've decided this is the next boat I want and I don't even know what to search for.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Carpe Diem my friends!

The boat pictured is a Nelson, but there were a few makers of bare/polished aluminum cuddly cabin/sedan type boats including Aero-Craft, Aroliner, Sports-Kraft, and a few more back in the 1950's.

Wow they are definitely proud of that one! It sure isn't as pretty as the Nelson is. I mean the lines are harder and more square, on par with the aluminums of today.
