Built in 1980, this 43’ Hans Christian was the 1981 “Show Boat” of the San Diego Boat Show. This little ship represents perfection in a cruising design. The ship’s quality transcends the average buyers perception. The underbody of the 43T and the topsides of total grace and tradition are designed for functional cruising. Her ease at sea, her balance, her warmth and pride of ownership are far more important than a racing record, but the lady is fast. Expect the easiest possible motion at sea. The interior detailing maximizes function at sea in terms of storage, convenience, utility, light, and ventilation. This is a great yacht for a knowledgeable buyer who demands amenities that work. She has three staterooms, two with Queen accommodations and one with single. The main Salon is designed for easy comfort, space and entertaining with a navigation station which is “state-of-the-art” in planning and flexibility. Her beauty and purity of line are reminiscent of the past but totally compatible with function and performance. A great opportunity for a significant savings over buying new.
