***PRICE REDUCED*** Built in the Taiwanese yard of Hansa Yachts Und Shifbau in 1984, this little ship virtually gleams with the artistry of that time and place and it was cutting-edge designed for blue water cruising. The 33’ was the smallest of the Hans Christians and as such it’s likely the easiest to handle. She has a lovely sheer line that is recognized worldwide, a large bowsprit, and is cutter-rigged with a self-tending staysail. The fuel and water tanks are built into the keel cavity, lending to stability. While she is a full-keel hull, the forefoot is significantly cut away, meaning that it’s built to track well and maneuvers better in tight marinas. The large rudder is well protected by the keel itself. The doubled ended hull is slightly narrower than other HCs, which lends to stability and sea-kindliness. Though she won’t go winning many round-the-can races, she’s been known to do 3kts in 5kts of wind. In a hard blow, she’s stable and capable.
Inside, you again see form and function working beautifully. The HC33 is known for its amazing storage capacity. Provisioning for a passage is no problem for this incredibly well-designed 33-footer. It has a pullman berth to aft and another fore. The saloon and galley are trademark Hans Christian. Everything is beautifully rounded: rounded fiddles, oval mirror, oval portholes, cambered headliner, rounded handholds. It’s a joy to the eye. With ample portholes and a large butterfly hatch, there is plenty of light. The galley is easy to work in and tight enough to be safe in big seas. The saloon has an L-shaped settee around a table on the port side, and to starboard is a bench seat which makes for a good bunk when underway or sleeping five. The head is at the fore of the boat with lovely tiles and joinery, as well as a separate shower. Teak is used throughout creating that heartwarming glow that traditional sailors throughout the ages have enjoyed.
This boat is a treat to look at and yet it’s a serious offshore vessel. Come and step aboard and see what all the fuss is about!
