Nirvana's have been selling on E-bay like crazy and at some pretty high prices. Would seem more folks are looking for one of these great little boats. I suggest any one looking for one to jump on the two listed on E-bay!

Could be a while before Steve has a new shipment! This happened a few years ago as I recall. The news of the new boat project under discussion, perhaps comes at an opportune time?

Very interesting

Boomer
I would like to know where all these new Nirvana sailors are. I haven't seen a Nirvana on our pond in months.
New boats are always welcome, Joysway is coming out with a new RG-65 class boat, with Nirvanas as well as th MM hard to get, will be interesting to see how sales go.
We need a good entry level boat,that sails well out of the box, oncw you get them on the water, can't just have one !

Of course..boat was designed here, but, made over there...it went dry last time for sbout 4 mo., but, sales have been better this cycle, Xmas and all..

And typically, when the economy goes soft, hobbies in general pick up, they are cheaper than travel, or, golf..lol

Well, not to fear, the new boat will far exceed the Nirvana, and the Nirvana is actually my favorite boat, even tho I am a power guy, cause it doesnt do anything wrong..ever. like the energizer bunny..just keeps going..

Slow, but steady..going from my power to sail is like watchin paint dry..

The new boat will give everything we enjoy about the Nirvana, dry radio box, ease of assembly, colors, but with a paintable hull, and the speed a Seawind AINT got..and the ability to sail in a lotta wind..this vixen has been flogged a lot, by some championship rc sailors..I aint giving hype, I'm giving FACTS..

I'm not sure that Steve Lang could tell us anything about this shortage of Nirvana except what he has been told by Megatech.
Could be partially my fault.

I must have handed out about 300 Nirvana cards with Steve's info on them this past summer.

At least one lady that I remember mentioned she was going to get it for her husband for Christmas.

Whoohoo, maybe I'll have some Nirvana sailors up here this summer....

Vixen, Smickson...,just bought a Fairwind III!

If I put another sailboat on my wish list, I'll be walking the plank here for sure.

Does sound interesting though....

Whats that saying? He who dies with the most toys wins, btw you can never too many sailboats, just like a lady as they can never have too many shoes.That my wife as an example she has shoes that she hasn't seen for years, they are packed away .Look at it as investment you buy a new boat play with it for awhile then sell it to get a different boat. I will use myself as an example a year ago we had 11 boats, sold 5 of them and am now back up to 8 boats. And when the Vixen comes out it may be 9 boats in my house again..
Can, wait to get more informantion on the Vixen.

Zackly...

Its all about the move em out, move em in..I have dumped 10 boats this year, I think, the motorsailer, a carbon ' wind, 2 Nirvanas, 3 scale, etc..and so far have added 2 jets back, with a 3rd jet, the big one, still coming..

Thats what its all about..

I hope, if I can have any influence on this new boat, purple will be one of the colors offered..

HI, you make a good point too..if the old ladies start snivelin, take em for a walk thru the closets, that should shut em up..
