Completely refitted and in pristine condition, "Curlew" is a very special boat.  She has been maintained to the highest level and always meticulously cared for by her knowledgeable owners.  Our highest recommendation, she is available to be seen at your convenience.  We welcome your inquiry and will be happy to discuss the details of her major retrofit and consistent upgrades.

The Vanguard is a product of talented designer Phil Rhodes. She was designed at the beginning of the mass-produced fiberglass boat age. Boats of this period were designed as if they were going to be built of wood but were built of fiberglass instead. The result was a boat built to the conventional wisdom and to the rating rule of the time. The Vanguard very much reflects the thinking behind the CCA Rule. This included long overhangs, narrow beam, and (by today’s standards) comparatively small interior spaces. Since no one had a clear idea of the strength of fiberglass, the designers and builders stuck as close to wood scantlings as feasible. This resulted in a thick hull, known dimensions for a desired boat length, and a conservative approach to the entire project. This does not follow today’s trend toward wider, lighter, and shallower boats. The older boats were built heavier than today’s equivalent-length craft.

Please review the full listings (preliminary information with additional details to follow) as well as extensive recent photographs.  She is in the water and available to be seen at your convenience.
