1985 Hans Christian 43T

location icon New Orleans, Louisiana
Year 1985
Length 43 ft

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.
