The Nereus was built in Sen Koh Shipyard Taiwan and completed and fitted by Wiggers Custom Yachts in Canada. The Nonsuch Nereus 40 is a unique recreational keel boat, built predominantly of fiberglass. It has a cat rig, unstayed masts with wishbone booms, a plumb stem, a vertical transom, and an internally mounted spade type rudder controlled by a wheel and a fixed fin keel.
The Nereus 40 is a long-distance cruising yacht with a 'Freedom' style unstayed cat ketch rig, designed by Canadian Mark Ellis. She offers a very spacious interior, with very easy handling under sail - both sails are self-tacking, and all sail controls are led back to the cockpit. She has two large double cabins, each with an en-suite heads, and a large saloon and galley. The cockpit is large and offers a bimini, dodger, connector and foam cushions. The Nereus 40 is a larger ketch-rigged derivative of Mark Ellis's Nonsuch designs, and just six were built. The hull is solid fiberglass below the waterline, with balsa core above the waterline and in the deck molding. The interior fit is high quality and well laid out to provide very spacious accommodation for two couples. All interior doors and cabinet doors are louvered, and the interior sole is teak and holly. Overhead hatches and opening ports with screens offer excellent natural light and ventilation. The interior cushions where replaced a few years ago.
