What To Expect Onboard:

The "Nomade" (French for Nomad) was originally commissioned in 1982 for Mr. Bruno Bich (Bic Corp.) whose family at the time owned the Dufour Shipyard in Brittany, France.
Nomade was equipped with numerous enhancements (bigger keel and engine, all rigging extras for racing/cruising). 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.

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.
