Hans Christian 43 - USD 129,000

This smart Hans Christian has been substantially improved in her current ownership. Sold by YBC to the present owners in 2014, they immediately undertook a major refit.. Complete hull works, next a brand new Yanmar engine installation, including new insulation panels, a new Thakien-Thong bowsprit, including Burmese teak Sampson posts and deck beams and much more.

A new array of electronics at the chart table including a large mounted flatscreen and PC, Windows 8 and Open CPN software / zyGRIB and printer.

The owners spent heavily and were very energetic with their preparations for ocean sailing but new commitments have forced this listing. Shake down cruising in Indonesia was very successful and you may see much info and photos from the owners here.... https://web.facebook.com/adastrasailing/

The yacht is now ashore having the topsides and masts re painted. A much loved yacht, and your inspections are highly recommended.

Inspection by appointment with YBC.
