Owners remarks: NOMAD has been built for a first owner, as the result of many hours of discussion with Nigel Irens and Ed Burnett, the designers. The intention was to produce a seaworthy boat capable of sailing oceans in comfort and safety, which was beautiful at anchor, and welcomed at Classic Regattas worldwide.
A strong point is the pilothouse, with several seats, where one can sit safely and see the world go by. It is an ideal boat for two, but sleeping 5 is possible. The lack of bunks makes for a wide spacious interior, with settees and much storage room.
Sail handling is very simple, particularly with the carbon spars. A moderately capable person is able to haul up the main and gaff in a few minutes, with the use of one electric winch. This winch is also used for reefing.
The boat is commented on and admired everywhere she goes.
NOMAD has been lightly used, only in the summermonths for about 7 weeks coastal
sailing and stored for about 6 months every year for winter. She is meticulously maintained, and updated every year. There is little wear and tear to be seen, looking like new.
There is no outside brightwork to maintain.The hull and mast has been sprayed 2 years ago. The deckhouse has just been painted.
