Vanguard 15 Information

Vanguard 15 Information

From the outset the V-15 was designed to provide high performance in an extremely simple, comfortable, and durable package. The V-15 hull shape was tank tested to plane easily in moderate air and carry a wide range of crew weights effortlessly. The result is a hull that can be sailed competitively by crews ranging from 260-340 lbs. The wide, flat stern provides unmatched stability and control in all wind and sea conditions.

The Vanguard 15 Class Association sanctions hundreds of events all over the nation. From family-oriented "Great Escape" weekends to a regional and national level racing circuit, everyone will have something to gun for. Tight one-design class rules have been developed to ensure that your boat will remain simple and competitive for many years to come. Vanguard will be there to help you get your fleet started, so give us a call and put our knowledge and experience to work for you!

  • Jib leads recessed, eliminates body and gear chafing hardware
  • Harken blocks used throughout
  • Beveled rails designed to fit the curve of your legs
  • Mainsheet bridle allows centerline sheeting without the use of a traveler
  • Stable hull shape (wide aft) contributes to downwind stability; topside flair provides static stability
  • Revolutionary shape allows it to plane upwind in 12 knots of wind
  • Molded fiberglass kick-up rudder
  • Self-bailing cockpit
  • Strong, proven spreader bracket
  • Standardized one-design sails by North made with medium tempered 5 oz. cloth
  • Non-tapered, one-piece mast with external halyards is virtually indestructible
