Nonsuch Association
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 unique as are the sailors that love them.

The International Nonsuch Association is committed to the enjoyment of Nonsuch class sailboat cruising, racing and general fellowship. It sponsors a biennial International Rendezvous, maintains one-design control for fair and competitive racing within the class, provides unique Nonsuch parts and services enabling INA members to maintain and protect their investment in a high quality yacht. The association encourages and supports participation in our partner Regional Associations who organize events close to where you sail.

Nonsuch Registry 2017

Our 2017 Registry has been compiled and the electronic versions are posted to the members area (sign in) of the website, Registry menu item.

The print version has been submitted to our publishing company and an update will be posted as to when it is expected to be sent to members who have selected this (default) option for receiving the Registry.

We have continued with some format changes to this year’s Registry with an objective to increase ease of use. The Members list is focused on contact information that will be useful while sailing. The Model and Boat Name lists include all known Nonsuch boats, some 870.

The Members list includes phone and email coordinates. Boat details contain the model, hull and sail numbers. The member’s home port and known regional affiliation round out the information. The list is alphabetic by member name and includes others associated to that member. Where there is no boat information the member currently has no Nonsuch boat

The Model and The Fleet (boat name) lists comprises of all known Nonsuch boats. Where contact information is blank either new owners have not communicated with the INA or new owners have not been identified.
