1984 Nonsuch 26 Classic

Brokers Comments:
This 1984 Nonsuch Classic 26 is by far the best value currently on the market. Over 50K has been invested over the last two years in a remarkable full restoration. Every system on this boat has been serviced and upgraded. Custom designed conversion transforms the seating area into a spacious doublewide berth for comfortable sleeping for a couple. Two additional single aft berths make for accommodations for a family of four. Only sailed in fresh water and stored in heated winter storage that boat has been pampered. You will not find a better Nonsuch 26 anywhere.

Dave Regnet learned to sail when he was 8 at summer camp on Lake Chautaugua. He returned 7 more summers because sailing (and teaching others to sail) became his passion. Dave grew up in Buffalo where he has been active in the Buffalo Harbor Sailing Club since the early 1980s. In 2007, Dave moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and became active in the Lake Grapevine Sailing Club. Returning north in 2010, Dave and his wife, Rebecca, joined the St. Marys Boat Club located on Grand Lake St. Marys. He was club champion in 2017. Dave’s retirement from over 30 years in manufacturing, sales management, and plant operations allows him to pursue his passion for boating by adding value to buyers and sailors alike in the Sandusky area of Lake Erie.
