Nirvana, the model sailboat, has not changed in appearance or performance since first produced in 2003. Even though there was a period when this boat was dubbed Nirvana II, she is simply referred to today as Nirvana.
The latest version came out in 2011, with the primary difference being a new radio system. Gone are the days when frequency conflicts cause boats to lose control. Today, the Nirvana has a very efficient 2.4 ghz frequency hopping radio system which automatically prevents interference.
This 32” model is produced to look like a real sailboat, from the extremely durable polyester sails to the look of her cabin trunk. Also note the deep fin keel with lead bulb that allows this boat to sail well in high winds (up to 22 mph). No other model in this category can come close in performance or appearance. This model will not capsize.
The rig, keel, and rudder are all quick release so the boat may be reduced to an easy-to-carry package in a moment. When displayed on her boat stand (included), she is 32” long, 66” high (bottom of keel to top of mast), and nearly 8” wide. Nirvana is available in three colors. Only 12 AA batteries are needed to sail this boat for up to 5 hours.
A complete line of inexpensive spare parts are available for this boat.

Warranty Fine Print
Registration & Proof of Purchase Proof of purchase is critical to a warranty claim. Please register your boat with SailRC within one month of purchase and keep your original receipt.
Electronics SailRC is not a warranty service station for any electronics company. We are pretty good at troubleshooting most of our electronics but even we have a hard time keeping up with new technology. We will troubleshoot your issue on the phone and if we cannot resolve your issue, we will send you directly to a manufacturer’s service rep to get a resolution (either repair or replacement). We will NOT be sending you overseas to any manufacturer – all service centers we use are in the US!
Shipping Damage All items shipped by SailRC are insured for full value. If your boat, or accessories, are damaged during shipping from us to you, it is important to contact SailRC immediately for claims processing.
Important If something is damaged in shipping, most of the time the outside box shows evidence of rough handling. We need pictures of damage to the box.
Again, we are not responsible for damage in shipping but we facilitate getting a resolution in your favor.
Warranty Shipping – The customer is responsible for all costs of shipping a warranty item to and from a warranty station.
No Return If a part fails, many times we can made a decision based on your photograph sent via email. In this case, we may avoid having to return the broken part for review. So take good pictures and send to Steve@SailRC.com.
Replacement Parts Any shipping involved with warranty parts is paid by the owner.
If SailRC ships a warranty replacement part before a faulty part is returned to SailRC, or the manufacturer, the owner will be charged for the replacement. When the part is properly returned and deemed replaceable under warranty, then a credit will be issued to owner’s credit card.
Term We do not set the term of warranty service on our products but we sometimes offer extended warranty coverage. Below are just some of the warranty terms for the products we handle.
Nirvana Megatech, International, a US company, produces the Nirvana and warrants each new boat for 90 days from the verified date of purchase. In North America, SailRC manages all Nirvana warranty services.
