Well cared for and considerably updated Nonsuch 30 Classic. Her experienced and knowledgeable owners have cared for her with an open checkbook and it shows in every respect. The design of this uncomplicated cruiser is from the board of highly respected Mark Ellis and she was built by George Hinterhoeller, two prominent and powerful names in the yachting industry. He modified the traditional catboat hull, giving it a distinctive sheer with a finer entry and has carried the maximum beam father aft. Since there is no mast in the cabin and the nearly 12-foot beam is carried well on both ends, the Nonsuch 30 has much more interior volume than its length would suggest, even when compared with more modern designs. The cabin is laid out with opposing settees forward with a dropleaf table between, a workable L-shaped galley, a large head compartment with shower, and quarter berths aft; the starboard one is a double. Underwater, the fin keel and partially balanced spade rudder largely eliminates the considerable weather helm common to most catboats. And while the plumb bow and stern, distinctive sheer, and highly cambered coachroof also characterize the Nonsuch 30, its most prominent feature is the tall, tapered, unstayed mast with a wishbone boom. The sail is handled from the safety of the large cockpit. Running rigging consists of a main halyard, a mainsheet, a choker line, which easily controls the fullness or flatness of the sail by adjusting the fore-and-aft position of the wishbone boom. The mast tends to bend leeward when the wind freshens, which spills the wind from the sail and keeps the boat from being overpowered. Along with the wide beam and a 39-percent ballast to displacement ratio, this makes for a very stable and forgiving boat. Call today to schedule a personal showing appointment.
