Orkney Vanguard 170

The Vanguard 170 is the ideal family day boat for trips up the harbour with enough space for family, friends and even the dog! It can be easily trailed behind a family car and launching and retrieval is reassuringly simple and hassle free.

The Nelson influenced hull with its deep forefoot and modified V sections ensures a dry comfortable ride whilst the easily driven lines provide impressive and economical performance.

With the 26" interior freeboard, inset coamings, built in buoyancy, self draining cockpit and big boat stability you can venture further offshore with confidence. Whilst beamy aft sections and shallow draft make for easy launching and the excitement of exploring shallow creeks and estuaries.

Strong stainless steel cleats and fairleads are among the many practical seamanlike features on the Vanguard 170. Other features include convenient storage lockers, vented under floor fuel locker with gas strutted lid and a dedicated battery compartment. There are several custom accessories available including an optional folding spray dodger or GRP cuddy, handrails and aft seats.

The Vanguard 170 effortlessly combines style and performance yet shows no compromise on the practical details and safety features to make this a class leader.
