You haven't 'really enjoyed life' aboard a Nonsuch until you have . . .
Sat in your cockpit, with a full enclosure including screens, while enjoying dinner and the evening . . . WHILE THE BUGS ARE OUT . . . and with all the nearby crews having retreated below in their hot, stuffy cabins to become aquatic troglodytes (cave dwellers).
Sailed or motored for hours in pouring rain and/or wind driven spindrift . . . comfortable and DRY while wearing no boots and no foul weather gear and without little trickles of water running down your neck, and then still further.
Slept in your cockpit on a HOT night not worrying for a moment about bugs, the dew, or rain.
Had the pleasure of an extra couple on your boat who can sleep in your lovely 'deck salon'.
Sat warm, comfy, and DRY in the cockpit with your coffee on a cool, windy, and damp/wet morning.
Not had wet charts and/or beads of water on the displays of your instruments or chartplotter.
Slept six adults comfortably and all under cover on a 30C !
It's not inexpensive but . . . have you priced out a Northeast 400 or similar yacht? ! ? This is like adding another and a much bigger (because of the view & light) cabin without adding 10' / 3 m to the boat (and THAT's a huge cost saving!).
Boats from 26 to 40 are shown here. Any 22s have photos of their rig they'd like to share?
