In the mid-1970s, Gordon Fisher, a respected Canadian sailor, commissioned designer Mark Ellis to create a design for a cruising sailboat which would have decent accommodations, but still be easy for a singlehander to manage. Ellis designed a Ljungstrom-type rig modified with a wishbone boom.  By the time Hinterhoeller closed its doors in January 1996, a total of 975 of Nonsuch boats had been built with 256 of the 26`model.

Sail handling on the Nonsuch Classic 26 is very simple and was one of the design features specified by the original concept. Easily single handed, perfect for a couple for cruising. Very fast off the wind and points well. One sheet for the main and an adjustment for the wishbone for or aft to increase or decrease draft in heavy or light airs.

A well equipped example of the classic Nonsuch 26 which includes a full enclosure, refrigeration, a propane cabin heater and stove, electric windlass, and 110 power throughout.  With the new red Alwgrip hull paint and the dingy, this is an excellent 26′ package.
