2009 Vanguard Nomad
Seventeen feet long and eight feet wide. Planing hull and monster stability coupled with narrow aspect rudder and centerboard create one sweet platform for performance sailing. The tapered mast and adjustable spreaders leaves room for tweaking aloft.
"The Nomad represents a new category of sailboat, one that combines superior Vanguard performance with ease of use for two to six people. Designed by Bob Ames, designer of the Vector and Vanguard 15, the Nomad is unlike any other daysailer on the market. The Nomad combines performance, stability, and durability in a package that appeals to beginners and experts alike. One of our goals for the Nomad was to design and build a boat that sailed very well and also had creature comforts one might associate with bigger boats. There is plenty of room for adults, kids, and storage for all the gear that comes with them."
Convenient storage in four lockers in the cockpit which is perfect for extra gear, an anchor, cooler or whatever your needs are.
Large, open, self bailing cockpit.
Comfortable seating with angled backs
Your choice of North Sails 3DL RM racing or Dacron sails
