Hans Christian 38 MKII is a traditional double ender cutter rig sailboat, designed by American, Harwood Ives, build in the Shin Fa boatyard in Taipei, Taiwan, by skilled Chinese carpenters, using American made hardware. The interior is all teak and is a work of art. Hand built boats of this quality are no longer commercially viable. Built heavy for blue water sailing, this boat boasts the strongest hull in the industry with 10,300 pounds of iron glassed into its 6’2” keel. The current owner has fully refitted this vessel with every system fully reworked, or in most cases, replaced over the last 11 years. This is a completely modern sailing vessel in a strong, sea kindly form.
Cutter rigged with an off-shore Harken roller furled jib and stay sail for easier handling and good performance sailing. The main sail has triple slab reefing with jack lines and many other features to optimize sail management. She is easily handled by a shorthanded crew and has been single handed over hundreds of sea miles.
All standing rigging was redesigned and replaced including a new boom. She has new sails, blocks, winches, tracks, carbon fiber reaching pole, jamb cleats, boom vang and much more.
