The Hinterholler Nonsuch 30 is a breeze to sail. The deck and cockpit are models of simplicity. 

Nice wide, flat, uncluttered side decks going forward, high lifelines, an easy wide-open cockpit with lots of wide flat surface, and a POWER winch to raise the mainsail!  There are two generous berths and modern simple electronics.

Practical sailor says

"The Nonsuch 30 is one of the most boring boats we have ever sailed. Tacking requires no yelling, releasing of sheets, cranking, tailing, or trimming. The helmsman simply says “ I think we’ll tack” and gives the wheel a quarter turn, Being careful not to upset his Mt. Gay and tonic. The Nonsuch quietly slides through about 85 degrees and settles on the other tack with a minimum of fuss.  Beating up a narrow channel simply requires repeating the process."


Sails & Rigging

Power winch for the mainsail!

Doyle mainsail has worked very well for the current owner, there is also a spare mainsail.

There is a stack pack style sail cover which is a big help in sail handling

All lines are newer. There is also a spare mainsheet and halyards.

The lines all lead aft to the cockpit.

There are many new and upgraded blocks,

Equipped with two reefs, and allows you to reef right from the cockpit.


The Hinterholler 30 Classic is very open and bright. There has ample storage between the drawers and three hanging lockers. The teak dining table has fillers to turn the forward cabin into a large berth. The two generous quarter berths are both easy to access. 

Multiple drawers and lockers allow you to keep the cabin neat and tidy. There are nine opening ports with screens, the forward hatch also has a screen, as well as the companionway, all provide great ventilation throughout the vessel without the buzzing of mosquitos at your ears.

The interior wood is teak finished plywood and has recently been refinished.


There is a three burner stove with an oven in the galley. The built-in dish storage keeps the dinnerware out of the way and secured while underway. There is an ice box to keep your beverages and food cool and hot and cold pressurized water in the stainless steel galley sink.
