The "Voyager" is a Vagabond Voyager cutter-rigged, full-keeled ketch displacing 20 tons. The draft is 5 Ĺ feet. The ship has a aluminum mainmast and a mizzen, and is equipped with a removable staysail. The headsails are attached to a 13 foot mahogany bowsprit. Voyager is 47 feet long overall, with a waterline length of 36 feet. Voyager has full-length teak decks. It is diesel powered and fitted with an auxiliary 7.7 kw AC generator. Voyager has a cruising range of 1600 nm at 6.5 knots with 230 gallons of diesel fuel. It has accommodations for six persons in two main staterooms and bunks in the saloon. Heads and separate showers are provided fore and aft. It carries 230 gallons of fresh water. Heating and cooling is provided by a reverse cycle control/compressor unit with heat exchanger units fore and aft. A dual-power Norcold refrigerator & freezer is located in the galley.

The ship is divided into five living areas including two staterooms with adjoining heads, a main saloon, a workroom, and a galley. The auxiliary generator set is located in the workroom beneath the work table in an insulated compartment. The engine and related systems are located within a separate engine compartment with access from all sides. All walls are constructed of solid teak, or marine plywood faced with teak.

The boat's strengths are its stability and comfort in rough seas and its classic looks.

Great boat. Yhis is a powerful seaworthy sturdy vessel that will get you to the ends of the earth in comfort. It is syable secure and fast on a reach. The interior volume and joinery are fantastic. Ours has a bow thruter, which is helpful. The bow is more than 6 feet off the water and can catch the wind when docking. The original winches are Cathay and too small and not the best.
The original electrical work was not the best. But the design is William Garden. He was magical. It is well balanced and has a terrific sail plan. I love the boat.
