30'4' Nonsuch Ultra 30


Are you new to sailing and looking for something reasonably priced and easy to learn on or are you an old salt that knows the pedigree of this classic Canadian build? Well look no further!
Daydream Believer this Nonsuch 30 Ultra is the perfect boat for island hopping the Virgin Islands and beyond With her generous cockpit, manageable length, shallow draft and accommodating interior make it an ideal live aboard cruiser. Cockpit benches are living-room chair depth, with high coamings for safe, comfortable seating under sail. Both the cockpit and saloon have large folding tables. The interior is spacious with plenty of ventilation. The sail is in excellent condition and a NEW Engine & transmission installed in 2019!

Her most prominent feature is the tall, tapered, unstayed mast with a wishbone boom. The rig is very simple, and there are few things to break. With one sail, one halyard, and one sheet, its one easy boat to sail! Especially for a shorthanded crew or even a single hander.

Due to the world wide pandemic the owners situation has changed and they have to sell their beloved Nonsuch. This is a true classic that turns heads everywhere she goes. Dont miss your chance to own a piece of sailing history!

With fuel consumption rates of about .5 gallons per hour, this provides approximately 36 hours of engine time.
