Fast, safe, comfortable and easy to sail! That about sums it up,...long waterline length and cat rig for easy and fast sailing along with huge beamy cabin for comfort once you arrive. Nonsuch boats are capable cruisers that are easily handled by one or two crew. A clever design that was well built and finished by Hinterhoeller Yachts.
This boat has been carefully maintained and upgraded and is in wonderful condition. Ready for summer cruising!

Truly amazing accommodation for their size! The Nonsuch 26 Classic is able to sleep a total of 5 adults; 2 in starboard quarterberth, 1 in port quarterberth, 1 on port settee double and 1 on starboard settee. (Owner has created a custom berth arrangement that makes the forward berth a queen berth.)
The main salon and table area is forward with the galley aft of the salon to port. The galley features a propane stove with oven, stainless steel sink with pressure hot/cold water, icebox with refrigeration system and lots of dish and pantry storage.
The head is opposite the galley to starboard and includes a marine head with holding tank with deck pump out or overboard discharge via manual pump. There is also a vanity sink and lockers outboard. In the aft end of the salon there is a double quarterberth to starboard and a single quarterberth to port.
The companionway on centerline leads to a large secure cockpit with wheel steering and deep coamings. These boats are ideal for the single or shorthanded cruiser that wants good sailing performance in a package that is easily handled. Roomy, fast, well constructed!
