The Dagger Nomad 8.5 is a creek boat with a displacement of 78 gallons. It is designed to be maneuverable on tight, low volume creeks and is ideal for runs where keeping your bow up is crucial. It is also suitable for big-volume rivers. The suggested weight range for this boat is between 150-240 lbs.


Ultimately, whether or not you should buy the Dagger Nomad 8.5 depends on your kayaking needs and preferences. If you are looking for a creek boat that performs well in low-volume creeks and big-volume rivers, the Nomad 8.5 could be a good choice. However, if you are looking for a boat that can accommodate self-support overnight trips, you may want to consider other options.

This boat shows some wear and scuffs; however, it is solid and has many years of service left in it.

It is missing the left hip pad and the drain plug; both are still available from Dagger.
