Vagabond 18 Boat Plans (VG18)
[VG18] A fast day sailor with cabin.
$175.00 – $200.00
The Vagabond 18 (VG18) is a fast daysailor with cabin. It’s program is mostly day sailing with occasional overnight cruises. The hull lines of the 18 are very close to the proven VG20 hull but the focus in this design was on a large cockpit and slightly smaller overall size.
Sailing performance was not sacrificed. Because of the program of the VG18, we are able to use wide angle swept back spreaders and eliminate the backstay. We would not choose that rig for a cruising boat but it is perfectly adequate for a boat with a less ambitious program. This allows the use of a powerful fully battened main and will make the boat easy to handle under main alone.
