The Nonsuch sailboat class was named after the Nonsuch (ship), the first trading vessel of Hudson's Bay Company, which in turn was named after the Baroness Nonsuch (Barbara Palmer), a mistress of King Charles the Second.

All Nonsuch boats share the same characteristics of roomy interiors that are comparable to sailboats many size larger; easy to handle rig, and comfortable motion.  Nonsuch boats were built by Hinterhoeller Yachts from 1978 till the mid 1990's.  Over 975 Nonsuch boats were built during the period.  Today, Nonsuch boats enjoy a truly dedicated and loyal following.
