Hi there! I am about to find myself inheriting a Volant of my own! I was hoping I might be able to be sent a scan of the brochure from someone who has it! I’ve been having the hardest time finding any info on the boat online! Adam.c.pod@gmail.com ! I’d be forever grateful! Thanks!!

Hello folks! Purchased a ‘90-something Volant recently and seller couldn’t locate rigging manual. Some beers and some friends later, this afternoon and we were able to get it pretty close, but I’d appreciate any resources you all know of. A pdf scan or somewhere online where it can be had. Thanks in advance for any help!!

Hi, I am in the process of purchasing a Vanguard Volant Sailboat, and would appreciate any help with information on the boat.
Specifically an owners manual, rigging instructions etc,. Also if anyone has sails for this boat I also need a main, jib, and spinnaker and would prefer not to buy new if I can avoid it.

Looks like a fun daysail.
Here is a link with a lot of pictures.
This does not sound like you first sailboat. I suspect the rigging is similar in form to the Laser or many of the 18ft daysail boats.

As far as sails, once you have the measurements you might find a near match for little money from one of the used sail places like Bacon. You might even look on line with someplace like Doyle Sails and see if they have the specs.

Looking at Sailing Anarchy I read this bit of local news for a sailor from Wisconsin... "The Milwaukee Community Sailing Center had a fleet of these for years".

Good luck

I have a Volant that has every factory installed rigging. If I can be of any help let me know.
Sorry, no manual on how to rig, just a sales brochure.
