Gulf Craft Nomad 75 tour: Tri-deck yacht offers ultimate liveaboard comfort

Gulf Craft may still be relatively new to the European market but it won’t take long for news to get around if they keep on building boats like the Gulf Craft 75 Nomad.

The Nomad 75 may look tall and beamy from the outside but the pay-off is an immense interior that puts most 75-footers to shame.

That’s because this is a proper tri-deck with internal and external stairs leading up to the raised bridge deck and a wonderful sky lounge with bi-fold doors and an open aft deck.

That leaves space on the main deck for the saloon and dining area plus a useful day heads but more notably a spectacular forward owner’s suite with 180° views over the foredeck.

This in turn leaves the lower deck free for a VIP suite in the bow larger than most master suites and two further double or twin guest cabins. The style is clean and unfussy with masses of natural light and quality materials.

Keeping all this lot on an even keel is a pair of Seakeeper 16 gyro stabilisers, while twin 1,550hp MAN engines reside in a full-height engine room.

These give a top speed of 24 knots but are just as happy chuntering along at 10-12 knots, burning a modest 75 litres per hour.

The fact this boat came all the way from the Gulf to Cannes on its own bottom illustrates its potential as a long-range liveaboard.
