Welcome

The Nonsuch® is the inspiration of Gordon Fisher, who with yacht designer Mark Ellis, approached George Hinterhoeller to build a comfortable cruising boat. This idea has produced over 950 boats from 22' to 36' that are enjoyed today by sailors of all types. Nonsuches are as unique as the sailors who love them.

The International Nonsuch Association is comprised of owners helping each other enjoy every aspect of the experience -- buying, cruising, racing, equipping, maintaining, socializing, and (when the sad day comes) passing it along to the next owner. We sponsor a biennial International Rendezvous, and maintain one-design control for fair, competitive class racing.  We support  partnered Regional Associations who organize events close to where you sail.

The INA provides members a place to go for information and contacts essential to keeping up the boats. The members-only side of this website contains key information such as: places to buy replacement and upgrade parts unique to Nonsuches, owners' manuals and historical brochures, factory maintenance recommendations, tips and projects, sailing trim and guidance, searchable access to all of the INA newsletters (1984 to today), and a members' directory helping you find fellow owners in your area.

A strong owners' association is your partner to help you enjoy and maintain your Nonsuch. Your membership helps protect your investment. In addition to the useful information described above, new members receive the class burgee and a six-month subscription to Good Old Boat magazine. They get the "NONSUCH Update" tri-annual newsletter with tips, sailing stories, and beautiful photography.  Not to mention a very active on-line members' discussion group, an annual Registry of all boat and owners, discounts on BoatUS towing services, access to specialized Nonsuch parts and regalia, the Nonsuch Rendezvous, and other opportunities for connection and camaraderie.

Nonsuch┬« is a registered trademark of the designer, Mark Ellis.  The INA is the only entity licensed to use the name, and does so solely for the benefit of owners and enthusiasts.
