International 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.

The original Hinterhoeller manuals are now online for the 26c, 26u, 30c and 30u models.

2015 Connecticut Leukemia Cup
Congratulations to Joe Carroll (center) and his crew on JUDITH MARIE. Joe won the Nonsuch Class in this year's Connecticut Leukemia Cup by winning both races in wonderfull conditions. Joe went south for more wind while HACLYON (Bob Cornell on left) and BANANAQUIT (Bill Wigglesworth on right) battled back and forth on the right side of the course hoping in vein to catch some relief from a strong ebbing current. Both finished with five points and Bill earned second place on the tiebreaker, while Bob finished third.  This racing was for a great cause and the Nonsuchery at the parties was incredibly fun.  Once again, the Nonsuch community showed that it is in a class of its own.
