    When I first approached BUGABOO, it struck me as a unique sailboat that has been very well maintained. The beautiful interior features teak and holly flooring, hand rubbed interior teak wood and joinery and matching upholstery and fabrics. The ports are all stainless steel with screens. An upgrade rarely seen on even larger boats!  With a low hour Yanmar engine, newer sails and exterior Sunbrella, BUGABOO is the boat to see. No disappointments and 100% ready to go.

    Additional Details

    The Nonsuch line of “catboats” was a series of popular cruising sailboats built between 1978 and the mid-1990s by Hinterhoeller Yachts in St. Catharine’s, Ontario. They were popular in North America, with over 950 built. The Nonsuch class was named after the vessel “NONSUCH” that was the first trading vessel of Hudson's Bay Company, which in turn was named after the Baroness Nonsuch (Barbara Palmer), a mistress of King Charles II of England.
    The Nonsuch sailboat was the inspiration of Gordon Fisher, who with yacht designer Mark Ellis, approached George Hinterhoeller to build a comfortable cruising boat. This idea has produced over 950 boats from 22' to 36' that are enjoyed today by sailors of all types. Nonsuch boats are unique as are the sailors that love them.
    In the mid-1970s, Gordon Fisher, a respected Canadian sailor, commissioned designer Mark Ellis to create a design for a cruising sailboat which would have decent accommodations, but still be easy for a single handler to manage. Ellis designed a Ljungstrom-type rig modified with a wishbone boom, on a 30' modern hull with a plumb bow, fin keel and balanced rudder. A beam of nearly 12' and cambered house-top created a large interior with accommodation equal to a standard yacht several feet longer. George Hinterhoeller, after some initial reservations about the design, agreed to build the boats, and the first 30' Nonsuch rolled out of his shop in the summer of 1978.
    Early Nonsuch 26 versions featured the “Classic” model, with two salon settees that acted as berths and the “Ultra” model, with a forward cabin and berth to port. The newer (1995 and 1996) Nonsuch 26 models were built with a forward cabin, large salon with port and starboard settees, a galley and separate head compartment. 
    BUGABOO is a modern customized version of the Nonsuch 26 with some custom features added by the builder. The original buyer customized the forward bulkhead to the salon area with a centered entry and a unique “pass through” from the starboard salon to the forward cabin. The fold-down table was redesigned into a folding table mounted on the deck between the two salon settees. The forward cabin Pullman berth is offset to starboard. This customized version produces a more open look.


    You can enter onto the side decks by way of the port and starboard boarding gates. Once onboard the side decks are wide and well protected with stainless steel stanchions and double life lines. Forward is the bow pulpit and anchoring hardware. Aft is the large U-Shaped cockpit with an elevated helm seat, which is also the propane locker. The port and starboard settees are wide with large lazarettes beneath them. Aft is well protected with stainless steel stanchions and rails. There is a folding swim ladder and an outboard motor lift. The helm is a Whitlock Pedestal and the steering system is an upgraded rack and pinion system. All gauges and electronics are within easy reach.
    Forward is the companion way into the lower cabin. Down three steps, which remove for access into the engine compartment, and to port is the U-Shaped galley. The galley is surprisingly large and efficient. There is an in-counter refrigerator/freezer aft, a two-burner propane stove, single stainless-steel sink and ample counter top and storage capacity. Across from the galley is the head compartment with a beautiful bi-fold teak door. The head is large with toilet, vanity and storage cabinet.
    The salon area is surprisingly large, feeling much larger than a 26' sailboat. Along the port and starboard sides are settees with storage under and behind the cushions and an outboard storage shelf. The electrical panel is located on the port side. The salon table is centered and offers a large leaf to port and a smaller leaf to starboard. When open, the table comfortably sits four. Under the table is a unique storage area for magazines or books. Forward in the salon is a bulkhead that was customized at build by the original owner. There is a unique “pass through” opening from the starboard salon into the stateroom. The area can be closed off with a privacy curtain. Overhead are port and starboard teak handrails and a large hatch with screen. Port and starboard stainless-steel opening ports with screens offer excellent natural lights and ventilation and added 12-volt fans throughout the cabin assist.
    The forward cabin offers a Pullman berth to starboard that is 78" in length! There is a  storage cabinet along the port side. The cabinet has a jewelry box and ample storage shelving. Overhead is a hatch with screens while facing forward overhead is an opening port with screen. All the way forward is access into the anchor locker. The teak cabin door has been removed by is available for attaching.
