This Vagabond 47 is an ideal size for weekend, distance cruising or live-a-board ventures. She can be easily handled by two people and she will comfortably accommodate six or eight for extended voyages. She is a real ship of 20 tons displacement, able to stow an immense supply of stores, fuel and water without appearing clumsy and with enough beam and deck space for comfort and a minimum angle of heel on a long passage.

The mid-cockpit provides excellent visibility and is dry even in a seaway due to her sleek clipper bow. Her lines show a powerful sailing hull with fine entry, strong shoulders and a clean run. William Garden has been gradually evolving this general shape for many years, and this yacht is proof of his vast sailing knowledge and expertise. The underbody provides plenty of lateral plane, a moderately cutaway forefoot, and well protected and efficient rudder and propeller. The long keel provides stability downwind. The Vagabond 47 is a full displacement yacht offering great comfort both in port and at sea.

This vessel was purchased in 2015 by its current owner who invested over $50,000 in upgrades and improvements both mechanical and electronic and hundreds of hours of associated labor. The current owner is an experienced sailing individual who was a partner in Lyons Yacht Works in Michigan, one of six worldwide Hans Christian dealers. He sold and commissioned sailing vessels up to forty-eight feet in length. He is also an Industrial Designer which gives him the vision and ability to design and build what this vessel aspires to.

The current owner is a very detail driven individual with an engineering mind who has meticulously focused on the mechanical and electronic upgrades and replacements throughout this vessel. Where work was done below the floor level, everything was sanded and painted.
