NOMAD HISTORY

Nomad keel was laid in 1995 on the sands of Tanah Beru. A small, traditional Pinisi style boat building community on the Island of Sulawesi and first launched in 1996. It was acquired by Todd in 1997. After an 8 month overhaul and fit out she set sail on her maiden voyage through the wave rich Islands of Eastern Indonesia. Things were pretty hardcore on board back then, a true sailing adventure  to the corners of the earth. In 1998 Cpt. Todd sailed her across the top of Java where the Nomad found a home surfing the world class reef breaks littered around the Islands in the Sunda Straight.

Nomad surfed and chartered in this area for over a decade with countless epic sessions and good times, before once again moving further north to the islands off West Sumatra in 2008. Truly a nomadic vessel. She has returned to Tanah Beru only once in all her years afloat.
