Classic Have owned a Nonsuch 30C for 7 yrs. Build quality is excellent. Really fast boat on a reach and down wind. Points about 5 degrees less than a racing sloop. Down wind can keep up with a sloop flying a spinnaker. (No spinnaker pole needed and the time to put it up and take it down along with the headsail change, offsets the somewhat slower speed of the Nonsuch). The Nonsuch needs at least 10knts to really perform. Have raced in 20 - 25knts W/O reefing. 40 footers, catch me if you can on a reach in 20knts! I have actually gotten the Nonsuch to plane. I had reservations about buying a Nonsuch after owning several racing sloops. I do not regret my decision to buy the Nonsuch.
