  1. 2009 Vanguard Nomad

    February 6, 2013 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    This is a really stable and safe racing platform that works well for beginners through experts.

    Equipment on Board:

    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 but which 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.
    Highlights:
    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.
    Asymmetrical spinnaker
    Comfortable seating with angled backs
    North Dacron sails and a roller furler jib
    Enclosed centerboard
    Dry sail or store on a mooring or a slip
    Easily rigged in 20 minutes. Mast can be raised by 1 person
    Clean halyards, sheets, and sail controls:
    Mainsheet is led away from passengers for less clutter in the cockpit
    Compression vang creates more space under the boom
    Mesh pocket located at the base of the tapered mast for all halyard tails.

    This rig includes:
    Galvanized trailer
    2hp Honda 4 cycle outboard
    Motor mount
    Dacron mainsail
    Zip-in mainsail float
    Dacron roller furling jib
    Jib sock
    Spinnaker
    Retracting bow sprit

  3. 2004 Vanguard Nomad

    December 18, 2012 by EVAN

    About this Sailboat:

    18’ Nomad Sailboat by Vanguard The Vanguard built “Nomad” can be single-handed or sailed with up to 6. The large open cockpit features a compression vang above the boom and aft rigged mainsheet which leave the cockpit open and unobstructed. Use as gentle day sailor or throw the asymmetric spinnaker on a windy day for an exciting ride. The sail plan is very modern with roller furling jib and spinnaker pole that launches, and retracts out of bow with the simple pull of a line. No need to go forward. Trailers like a dream. Nomads are versatile and can be stored on mooring, on a dock or on a trailer. This boat has summered at my dock. Its rig is simple and the boat is easy to set up and launch. Angled seats seatbacks are comfortable and help keep you dry. You sit safe and comfortable inside this boat not out on a flat deck with no support.

    Trailer with mast support, asymmetric spinnaker, main and roller furling jib, tapered mast, fixed vang , Self bailing cockpit, enclosed centerboard, motor mount with 2hp outboard, Paddle, main cover, jib sock, factory fit galvanized trailer with mounting blocks, roller guides, custom cover
