 The "nee Duette"


"The launch of the Nonsuch class in 1978 marked a breakthrough in catboat design, combining, for the first time, traditional catboat aesthetics with an efficient modern fin keel and spade rudder and a decidedly untraditional freestanding wishbone rig. The Nonsuch offers excellent windward performance, luxurious accommodations and amenities and unparalleled ease of sail handling." Mark Ellis Design Website.

Recently donated to Maine Maritime Academy, this Nonsuch 36 has just received significant coring work, new topside paint and new anti-fouling. With recent work this yacht is looking fantastic and ready to sail comfortably and safely with a minimum of effort.
