Rugged, amazingly ROOMY cat-rigged cruiser designed by Mark Ellis and built to very high standards by Hinterhoeller. A Nonsuch 30 has the approximate waterline length and beam of a 36' modern racer-cruiser, and the beam is carried well forward; the cockpit can comfortably accommodate eight, and what other 30' sailboats can you name with a separate stall shower?
Practical Sailor sums it up nicely by saying, "This is a relatively simple, easily sailed boat for the convivial sailor who doesn't mind being seen in what might be considered an oddball boat with an oddbally interior and an oddball rig. But, the more you look at it, the less oddball it seems: the design combines the distinctive shear, highly cambered roach roof and nearly plumb bow and stem of the Cape Cod-styled catboat with a moderate-aspect-ratio fin keel, low wetted surface and a partially balanced spade rudder below the waterline. The Nonsuch carries its 11'-10" beam out well towards the ends, as is typical of catboats. This results in interior volume and allows for accommodations that are spacious even when compared with much modern designs. Hmm, the more you look at it, the less oddball it seems!"
This particular professionally maintained example is in super nice shape (the interior is almost flawless and the exterior comes close), safe and easy to sail (single or short handed, Bay or coastal) and lying in a transferable Sausalito Yacht Harbor slip (there's a long waiting list to get into this harbor, and this slip has a great Richardson Bay, Angel Island and even partial San Francisco views). All in all, a nice turn key package that must be seen to be appreciated.
