I purchased the boat in 1993 and since then many upgrades and replacements were performed. "Nomade" offers a rare combination found in a 35' sailboat.

Bonjour, my name is Eric and if you are willing, I will be your captain for the remainder of this trip. Sit back, relax and let me make sure you have a safe and fun sailing ride.Before you embark on a vessel and trust your life into someone's hands, you need to know a bit about the person in charge, in other words, the captain.I have sailed since I was 12 years old and never stopped since. My best memories as a teenager are made of many moments spent with friends in the main cabin around a warm meal and red wine or solo sailing at the wheel in 30 knots of wind and the sun rising. Memories like sailing with a broken rudder in 30 knots of gusty winds, diving to untangle the rope caught on the propeller or a fishing net around the rudder and many more tribulations too long to list here. I have sailed the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, the Caribbean and many places along the Eastern U.S seaboard.
5.0 out of 5!
Had a wonderful time with Captain Eric on Nomade even though the wind seemed to be missing that day. He made sure all of us felt included in the sailing experience and we all left the boat in a happy mood. Thanks, Eric.
