      Hi Bob,

      We are still waiting for the final price from the manufacturer. We have recently made significant changes to parts that have broken often in the past and other issues so we don’t know the cost of the new run yet. We hope to keep the price below $350.

      Rest assured, the Nirvana is still a one-design model yacht and the new ones will still be essentially the same.

      Hi Dave,

      We were just told to expect them in April 2014! We are saying our prayers that they arrive early – many are waiting for this awesome RC sailboat.

      It will be new and improved – same one design as the first ones produced in 2003 but with many improvements to parts that often break and other areas.

    Anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new and improved Nirvana. What is the price for the newly revamped model? And what all will be included in the price?

      Hi Peter!

      So are we!!! We expect the price to be between $299 (price 2 years ago) and $349 including shipping. With the Nirvana, everything except for batteries is included. We recommend that you purchase the Nirvana “8” Recharge Kit – that comes with 8 rechargeable batteries for the transmitter, 4 rechargeable batteries for the boat plus a charger to charge all 12 without removing them from their devices! Easiest way to keep your boat ready to sail.

      Monday!!! We should be shipping Nirvana orders starting Monday, 8/11.

      We are thrilled to be back in the Nirvana business. Great boat, easy to sail and maintain.

    I have an nirvana that was given to me. It needs a rudder’, keel, and rudder servo. Will the parts from the nirvana II fit the original? Thanks Tim.

    1. Theresa Rae Gay Post author

      Absolutely, Tim! We have worked with the manufacturer extensively to ensure that this true one design sailboat continues to be a one design. There have been minor changes to improve the quality of parts but most are interchangeable. The rudder and keel have not changed at all. The replacement rudder servo is the 311 – it is a class legal replacement servo. The original servos that come with the Nirvanas are not available except in the brand new boats.
