Comparable Interior to most 35-36 sloops!

Hinterhoeller Yachts of Canada produced about 1,000 of these immensely popular cat boats. Mark Ellis designed the boat to be very easy to sail with a single wishbone rigged mainsail, and a modern fin keel and spade rudder. The result was a boat that is surprisingly fun to sail, and that points just as well as other sloops on the same vintage. Off the wind, catboats are fast. The build quality ofHinterhoeller is legendary .

At 1110 beam for 304 length, the beam to length ratio is extreme in comparison to most monohulled sailboats. This results in an enormous amount of living space, and a very comfortable cockpit with clean uncluttered decks.

Resolute is in good condition, but she is very simply outfitted. She is set up for day sailing now. If her next owner is interested in cruising, she could use refrigeration, updated electronics, buffing and waxing, and air conditioning for comfort at the dock.

Jack Horner of Boat US weighs in on the NS30 construction-

The keys to successful core composite construction are quality control and the knowledge of the builder. There are few, if any, boatbuilders with more experience building cored composite boats than George Hinterhoeller. The hulls and decks are joined on an inward flange and are securely bolted together through an aluminum toe rail.

Brokers Remarks

Resolute is a very simply outfitted example of what Hinterhoeller used to refer to the as The greatest thirty-foot sailboat of all time. She has mostly been used for day sailing, so she is not currently outfitted to cruise. For most people looking to cruise, she will need some electronics and a refrigeration system.

In my opinion, the Hinterhoeller quality is on par with many high-end semi-custom builders. It is extremely rare to find any structural issues with these boats.

She has traditional New England catboat lines, a free-standing spar with wishbone boom, a modern fin keel and a spade rudder. Her interior volume easily compares to most 35 footers . The well respected Canadian builder, Hinterhoeller, produced over 1000 of these stout and simple cruising machines. Her quality construction is apparent everywhere you look, and her sailing abilities of will surprise you.
