H.C. - 1982 38' HANS CHRISTIAN YACHTS
Freeport Bahamas $75,000 USD
Point-of-Aries has been a liveaboard for the last decade. It is well maintained by a Marine Engineer and Surveyor and was-is ready to cross the Atlantic as-is. Much is new, nothing is cheaply repaired, everything works. Sophisticated electronics are at a minimum; the engine has no glow-plugs, is raw water cooled, direct instrumentation for oil and 50A alternator. Most everything is redundant; two of everything or means of doing anything onboard. Single-handed, no problem.
Registration: Both Bahamas and United States
Owner will have no restrictions on entering-or staying in the Bahamas for up to 8-months a year
Bahama renewal is 100USD/Year
US Registration is Federal, boat is not tied to any particular state or subject to additional tax
Canadians’ may take-over the US registration
Note that this registration status is very valuable in terms of cruising-registration costs (Particularly Europe)
This is one of the best Hans Christians in terms of not having bastardised repairs, damaged internal woodwork or botched armature repairs. None of the main teakwork has been cut-replaced with pine, none of the gelcoat is blemished. The entire deck is netted. An integral ladder is fitted.
Hans Cristian’s are legendary and the best-built there can be. Solid Bronze, Brass and Stainless; Nothing is plated
Solid teak interior, no laminates, solid teak bulkheads, trims and flooring; no wooden components are subject to rotting. I am not into advertising the boat to anyone who doesn’t know this or what they are. It is not a Tayana; it’s far better
Maxwell winches, manual windlass for chain on both sides (50m+) with a warping drum (200m); all overbuilt for purpose.
Fiberglass; minimum hull thickness is 50mm - This is massive; the hull really can't be holed or cracked, Osmosis is irrelevant as a concern. Any fittings are through-hull with backing plates
Keel is poured lead; There are no bolts, no maintenance.
Steering is by a half quadrant turntable with oversize wire to the wheel. An emergency tiller is supplied
Liveaboard for the last 10-years; everything has been done on the boat. Everything. Force ventilated bilge and underfloor, there has been no mould or dampness in any compartment.
As you know, it has survived two category 5's. The present location received direct hits from both Mathew and Dorian
The location in the Bahamas is a Hurricane Hole for 5’s; rate is <500USD/Mo including water and power (Incredibly cheap)
