Broker’s Comments
1987 Hinterhoeller Nonsuch 22, Rolls Reuss III

Rolls Reuss III is a delightful little sailboat. It is loaded with high quality features. The Nonsuch 22 has a catboat rig that is exceptionally easy to sail single-handedly. This is an ideal boat for day sailing with up to four people or for coastal cruising with a couple. All lines lead to the deep, safe, and secure cockpit. She has classic catboat lines that have stood the test of time.

Rolls Reuss III has highly desirable options including an inboard diesel engine, wheel steering, and an available trailer. The Nonsuch 22 has an enormous amount of interior space for a 22 boat. She has settees that convert to a comfortable king-size berth, an enclosed head, an ice box, 6’ headroom, and other features hard to find in boat in this size.

She is a high quality pocket cruiser that sold for a premium price when new. Only 58 were built. They rarely come on the market. Nonsuch 22 owners tend to keep their boats or pass them on to family members. Rolls Reuss III is well equipped, well maintained, and available.
