The Mark Ellis-designed Nonsuch 26 has enjoyed great popularity since its introduction in the 1980’s. Nonsuch 26's have a reputation for being much better sailing boats than one would judge from their appearance. They were built by the well-respected Hinterhoeller yard in St. Catherine’s, Ontario. Their spacious and bright interiors offer standing headroom, a full galley and an enclosed head. They are very comfortable for a young family, very stable and easy to sail even when one is single-handing.This 1983 Kindred Spirit IV with sail number 118 has a fin keel, spade rudder, and keel stepped mast. The mainsail, set on a track with slides, is easily set, reefed, furled and controlled by one person from the cockpit. Her large cockpit with a deep coaming and high cambered coach roof allows lots of space on deck and below. Two large quarterberths are separated from the settee berths by the head and galley amidships. The settee berths extend into a full double bed, and there are bins and shelves outboard of both settees.
Kindred Spirit IV is a great little turnkey pocket cruiser. She really must be on a list of potential considerations for those purchasers looking for a boat under 30 feet. For viewing, the boat is located at Cedar Island Yacht Club, Kingsville, Ontario on Lake Erie just 30 min drive from Windsor. Contact Doug at 226-936-1652 or firstname.lastname@example.org
