The Best Of Boat WorldsTM

We’re unabashed suckers for these double ended Hans Christians, and this one, a 1982 HC 43, shows just why they’re so special. These are true world cruising yachts, and MINHAL has been there and done just exactly that. Having completed a circumnavigation, she’s been cruising the coast of Maine for the last decade, while being continuously upgraded and well maintained by her owners.

Hans Christian 43 for sale

Hans Christians are well known for their sturdy construction. With a heavy-molded reinforced solid fiberglass hull and molded fiberglass deck with sandwich core insulated construction, they’re rigid and well insulated.  All scantlings and lay-up are in excess of Lloyds of London specifications.

Her accommodations are designed for comfort on long passages. She sleeps seven with three private cabins, two doubles and a single, plus the pilot berth and pullout berth in the main salon.  Six beds can be left made-up with a seventh on the pull-out. The interior is beautifully finished in solid teak with a satin finish varnish.  Locker doors are either louvered or raised panel and the overhead is a white painted v-groove. 

She comes equipped with a suite of Lee Sails from 2012, new chainplates and standing rigging as of 2011, new halyards in the same year, and Maxwell bronze self-tailing winches. Her teak decks were refurbished with repairs and recaulking in 2009.

Other mechanical features include Sea Frost refrigeration, a 12V Ideal windlass, and pressurized hot and cold water.

If you, like us, love the salty and timeless characteristics of these Hans Christians, MINHAL is certainly worth a good look. No matter how you feel about the radical royal blue interior fabric! She’s listed by Morris Yachts for $115,000 in Maine.
