Built by Hinterhoeller Yachts Ltd in Canada, the Nonsuch 26 is a Mark Ellis design. The simple cat rig design makes her a fabulous yacht for sailing inshore or offshore waters as she offers easy rig control for couple or single handed sailing. She features a deep, safe cockpit and wide side decks to get around up top.  Performance wise the design is very fast off the wind and she points well. Down below she has full 6ft 2" standing headroom and is very roomy due to her plumb bow and stern design. She will sleep a total of 5 people, 2 people on two berths in the bow and three people in one double berth and one single berth in quarter berths situated aft in the saloon. "Daddy's Girl" has a fitted galley with a gas hob, oven and a fridge box. Our example has been much loved with several updates, but this charming yacht is now ready to be sold for her next owner to enjoy.

Owner's comments

This is a safe, easy to handle, vice free yacht that has taken us on numerous Channel crossings and as far as the French Bay of Biscay. This is a yacht that belies her size, both in terms of accommodation and sailing performance. We keep the engine serviced and winterised every year. We are only selling "Daddy's Girl" as we have found a larger boat to accommodate our growing family. Ideally we wanted a larger Nonsuch...but we could not find one!

Broker's comments

"Daddy's Girl" is a great yacht. She feels so much larger and heavier than your usual 26 footer, has comfortable accommodation with decent headroom and that deep cockpit provides the feeling of utmost security.

"Daddy's Girl" has enjoyed numerous upgrades over the years, including the 2009 engine, the recent chart plotter, VHF, Sprayhood and dodgers and will give her next lucky owners an easy to sail, comfortable yacht that ticks off the miles without hassle.
