From the Owner

A well known boat around Honey Harbour And Picnic Island I found her for sale near Kingston in 2010. She needed a new bottom and sides so after sitting around my shop for several years she made the trip to Curtis Hillman in Milford Bay for a new look!  I made the decision to do away with her white paint and to have a dark stain called Jacobean put on her new mahogany hull followed with lots of gleaming varnish.  I saw a boat at the Gravenhurst boat show that had a very dark stain on it with bright yellow upholstery which made a stunning combination. I told Curtis that’s what I wanted and it turned out just as stunning! Due to the Pandemic Nomad has not been exposed to the public eye yet and cannot wait to put her on display!

Thank goodness you saved her but wouldn’t a model 130 “Commuter” be 30′ long?
