Nonsuch Nonsuch 22

  • 22.00 ft
  • Daysailer


The latest addition to the Nonsuch family is the new NONSUCH 22. Again Mark Ellis has shown his ability in Catboat design. The boat was designed for the couple, or the family with two children, whether they are novice or seasoned sailors. It is an ideal boat for day sailing with friends or cruising either as a couple or with the family. The cat boat hull form with its fin keel and spade rudder configuration results in a boat that balances well and steers easily, and will perform easily with boats of similar size.The proven concept of a free standing spar, and wishbone rig, sail track and slides are used for the NONSUCH 22 sail plan.

The cabin is spacious with six foot head room and is furnished with varnished teak sole, full molded head liner, and wrap around teak grab rails. All interior teak is satin varnished with cedar strapping accent over the settees. A six foot, six inch port and starboard settee has five inch, tufted, upholstered cushions with zippered removable covers. Both settees extend together to form a king size berth. There is a full length shelf outboard, with upholstered back rests over the settees. Five opening ports and the forward hatch give ample light and ventilation. A convenient stow away table is mounted at the forward bulkhead and deep storage lockers are located on each side.

The L-shaped counter top in the galley is finished with formica and teak fiddles and features a large ice chest, deep stainless steel sink with fresh water foot pump, two drawers and a locker below the stove area, and an opening port over the galley. The enclosed head area is to starboard with full height louvered door, marine head, and a molded vanity with sink and foot pump. A large hanging locker is aft and an opening port and vent is overhead. Stove shown is an optional extra.

The NONSUCH 22 is built to the same high standard of quality of all Hinterhoeller Yachts and features many of the exceptional standards found on the larger Nonsuches.
