Nonsuch Nonsuch 30

  • 30.00 ft
  • Daysailer


The first, the most popular, and the most widely traveled NONSUCH is the NONSUCH 30. Conceived in 1977 as a fast, stable, and simple family sailboat, this remarkable design has sailed the Atlantic Ocean many times. The NONSUCH 30 won a race from the Pacific Northwest to Hawaii and has received a decade of compliments as the best boat for all reasons.
Much has been written about the NONSUCH 30's boat speed, and its remarkable upwind ability. Common knowledge now has it that the simplest, safest and most enjoyable way to go sailing is to sail a NONSUCH. Nice, but hardly the only reasons to qualify here as "the greatest thirty foot sailboat of all time."
The cockpit of the NONSUCH is directly influenced by the Cape Cod catboat; large, deep and comfortable. It becomes more than simply a place from which to sail the boat. This cockpit truly becomes a porch. It is a place to view the harbors of the world, yet becomes a picnic area. It is an outside dining room as well as a very comfortable place to sleep beneath the stars on the best of evenings. This cockpit is designed to serve many functions and is a special part of the NONSUCH design. The entire deck is part of this design. The uncluttered walkway becomes a special delight. There are no shrouds, chainplates or turnbuckles to impede sunbathing. There are no stays to interfere with the anchor chores.
The accommodations made possible by the NONSUCH hull form and design are spacious in every dimension and uncluttered with unnecessary structural bulkheads. The catboat hull which allows such sailing stability also lends extra space for storage. hanging lockers and headroom not found in any sailboat design of this size.
Typically HINTERHOELLER in construction, the entire NONSUCH interior is joined in matched grain teak finished with satin hand rubbed varnish. The ambience created by this is a warm statement of old world yachting encompassing the very best in modern yacht design and construction. The NONSUCH catboat below is a wonderful place to be.
To inspect a NONSUCH 30 is to understand why we believe that it is simply the best boat for all reasons.

The "Classic" NONSUCH layout places the dining area forward. The lovely stateroom is away from the traffic, yet open to the rest of the boat. A sliding bulkhead and louvered door create two-cabin privacy when desired. A unique adaptation of a "classic" theme and feeling.  Hand rubbed satin varnished teak joinery and special finishing touches help create the special feeling of elegance found in NONSUCH. This feeling is enhanced by an obvious sense of pride and attention to detail.
The NONSUCH 30 "Ultra" boasts an enormous main salon. Its private forward cabin with hanging locker, chest of drawers, head and separate shower is very special. A unique galley with an abundance of storage becomes a gourmet's workshop.
