Nonsuch Yachts

Eastland Yachts image Eastland Yachts has sold hundreds of Hinterholler Nonsuch’s over its 40 year history. While in production we were the brand's largest dealer. We have many Nonsuch listings and would be more than happy to help you find your next Nonsuch.
The Nonsuch idea was formulated by Gordon Fisher of Canada, racing yachtsman and defender of the Canada’s Cup. He needed a sturdy, fast, family sailboat the he could race without a crew. To maximize this concept, the elimination of all the problem areas was essential. Jibs, genoas, spinnakers, stays, shrouds were totally eliminated.
Gordon Fisher and designer Mark Ellis rediscovered the catboat and asked George Hinterhoeller, Canada’s prestigious boat builder, to build four Nonsuch 30s in 1977. The yachts were not only remarkably well balanced in all conditions but they were superior to many so-called racing machines.
The Hinterholler Nonsuch is a remarkably well built yacht with the ease of a one sail, one sheet sailing experience.
