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 mumerous 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:

  • Performance sailing: all the rigging equipment needed to tune your sails/rig and make your boat go faster combined with a fast upwind/downwind hull design.
  • Cruising comfort: a practical cockpit design combined with a cozy interior, entirely finished with wood veneer for a very warm atmosphere.
  • Solid quality construction: Nomade was built with durability and safety in mind.
  • Designer: Johan Valentijn who designed a few boats for the America's cup and while working with Dufour designed the 4800 -
  • Specs: Length: 10.40m (34'.10") - Beam: 3.40m - Draft: 6'5"
  • Model: DufourV35 TM 4800
