You will be hard-pressed to find a better-maintained one-owner freshwater-only Nonsuch 30 Ultra than VIRGIN GORDA. She has always had the utmost in care, upgrades and improvements and her owner's attention to detail is exceptionally evident when you are invited on board.
The Nonsuch cat-rigged sailboat is uniquely Canadian, inspired by Gordon Fisher, designed by Mark Ellis, built by Hinterhoeller and named after the famous "Nonsuch", a 50-foot square rigged ketch that successfully sailed into the Canadian Arctic in 1668, clearing the way for the creation of the Hudson's Bay Company two years later.
The ‘Ultra’ model added a unique dimension to the Nonsuch line and modern day sailing by adding the comfort of a more traditional interior, while still maintaining the competitive sailing advantages specific to the Cat-rigged design. The long waterline permits higher pointing ability than one sail would normally allow, while allowing the convenience of tacking by a turn of the wheel giving the racer in you an advantage. The fin keel and spade rudder also does away with the windward helm characteristic of some Cape Cod catboats.
With a free standing mast situated at the bow, the interior volume of a Nonsuch is 20% to 30% larger when compared to other 30 ft. sailboats. VIRGIN GORDA has been updated, upgraded, and meticulously maintained since she was first splashed in 1984.
She will sleep 5 and features a separate forward stateroom with a full sized double bunk to port. A full length hanging locker, vanity and ample storage area, including drawers and shelves, are incorporated in this stateroom. The head is forward and to Starboard, and has a separate shower stall with seat. The galley is located on the portside approximately amidships and is L-shaped. The main salon sleeps three; two on a convertible dining table, and one on the port settee. The richness of the interior is accented with a teak and holly sole, yet remains airy with a total of 7 opening ports and three overhead hatches that are all equipped with screens. For the numerous upgrades and additions, please consult the detailed listing.
With her shoal keel, well-maintained engine and 3-blade "Sailor" low-drag prop, this Nonsuch 30 Ultra is ideal for cruising into the waters of Georgian Bay, the North Channel, 1000 Islands or even the Florida Keys.
If you are in the market for a well-kept 30 Ultra, then you simply must consider a long and hard look at VIRGIN GORDA. She is certain not to disappoint you.
