SOLD! 1989 Nonsuch 30 Ultra

SOLD! 1989 Nonsuch 30 Ultra

Angora, a beautiful and pristine Nonsuch 30 Ultra has come available to the public for the very first time since she was ordered new in 1989. This amazing and spacious sailboat is a blast to sail, fun for the entire crew and boast accommodations traditionally available in much bigger sailboats. The Ultra is a popular and desired sailboat in the Pacific northwest and understandably so, considering the amount of boat that has somehow been slipped into a LOA of less then 31 feet. 

Price: $55,500


Available for viewing now at the Shilshole Bay Marina. By appointment only please. 


The Nonsuch with her unstayed rigging its the roomiest sailboat to float under 31′ LOA. 

Warm craftsman wood interior with soft comfortable Navy blue cushions wrap the spacious center cabin extending the full length of her 12′ beam. 

The starboard salon table is a transformer of sorts; one, a L-shape salon. Second, the table top hinges to fold-out to provide a huge tabletop to the port settee. And, with the twist of two wing nuts, a queen size berth is made. 

To port, a large chart table and a long settee with storage behind the backrest and above. 

Forward, a private folding door bend a twin pullman berth, a vanity with drawers to starboard, a private door to the shower and head cabin and forward the largest locker you will have ever seen!

Both the hull and deck are fiberglass composites cored with end-grain balsa for maximum durability and insulation. The deck is joined by the inward flank of the hull with water tight butyl tape and secured with thru-bolds. All deck hardware is properly backed for load distribution. 

The deck toe-rail is capped with an aluminum rail and integrates cleat fairleads forward, mid and aft ship for the inboard cleats . A rubber rub-rail wraps the diameter of the boat. 

Stainless steel stations are base mounted to the deck and carry the double lifelines to the stainless steel pulpits. lifeline gates are both port and starboard inline with the dodger handrail for safe boarding. The aft pulpit hold a folding S/S swim ladder for east access from the waterline.

The external deep lead keel is bolted on with stainless steel bolts. These bolts pass through floor timbers of unidirectional roving, transferring keel loading from the garboard section to a greater area of the hull. 

The freestanding aluminum mast is secured into a female hexagonally shaped mast-step that is lagged to the hull of the ship. The butt of the mast is fitted with a hexagonal male counter part that is strongly joined to the mast step with stainless steel hex screws. The mast is further connected to the hull by a deck level pin that passes through the mast and and the cast aluminum deck collar.
