1982 Nonsuch 36 (Custom Built - NS36)

Noank, Connecticut


Cracker Jack is a standard Nonsuch 36 with the exception of the custom interior.  This special interior was built into the boat by Canadian builder, Bill Gomans.  Bill specialized in interiors.  The boat was so successful and popular; Hinterhoeller built nearly seventy more in the eighties.

This Nonsuch 36 is exceptional in condition and is a pleasure to look at.  She is also wonderful to be aboard.  Her exceptional plan below makers her, in my view, one of the best opportunities of any of the larger Nonsuch sailboats we have had the pleasure to list.  She is on display here at our office and may be seen at anytime by appointment.  One of the first few larger Nonsuch's to be built her conditon must be seen to be appreciated.
