Full Details

Set sail and realize your dreams across the horizon. The Hans Christian 43 was designed and built to be a comfortable and safe yacht, capable of sailing any ocean in the world. Her hull design incorporating a full keel and over built hull ensures a comfortable motion and safety at sea.

This Hans Christian 43T cutter rig tri-cabin layout features a pullman berth in the master stateroom instead of the standard v-berth and is the ultimate in cruising in comfort and elegant workmanship. Renowned for their strength and sea kindliness and admired for their good looks the Hans Christian sailboats have a strong following among cruising sailors.

Quality Hans Christian craftsmanship and a $95,000 complete refit in 2012/13 that replaced virtually every mechanical, electrical, and safety system, makes this a truly impressive and ocean ready yacht.
