According to http://www.gdal.org/frmt_netcdf_vector.html GDAL 2.1 and later is now able to read and write netCDF vector data.

At least ogr2ogr -f netcdf points.nc points.vrt works for me on a given VRT file, and ogrinfo -al points.nc can read the output correctly.

It would be nice if that format could be added to the list of available formats in QGIS 3.x

If you have a QGIS copy compiled with the proper GDAL version then it just works. See attached image. The problem I see is that the browsers "sees" that files as rasters layers, and loading from there it will fail. Would you mind opening a new ticket about that? thanks.

I searched the datatype in the "Add vector Layer" dropdown list, and did not find it there. With "All files" it seems to work as vector layer.
