1976 Hans Christian 34

Mandeville, Louisiana


The Hans Christian 34 was designed by Bob Perry for cruising, specifically for ocean sailing.  Her heavy, double-ended, cutter-rigged build is simply beautiful.  This particular HC34 has the awards to support that assumption of beauty, and was cruised extensively in the Bahamas by the present owner.  The hull is solid, thick, hand-laid fiberglass.  Lifeline stanchions are mounted vertically into her high, strong, bulwarks giving you the impression that she is going to take care of you at sea.  Her heavy duty traveller is solid bronze, and her keel is full and 7,000 pounds.  She boasts copious amounts of storage space -plenty of room for provisions- and a gorgeous, all-wood interior.  A 45 lb. ROCNA anchor is there to hold you securely in your anchorage, and the NEW Lofrans Tigress Windlass (2019) is there to pick it up.   She had a NEW ENGINE installed in 2011, so there is only about 700 hours on it!!!  Her MAINTENANCE LOG has been faithfully kept.  An aluminum diesel tank was installed, new, in 2016.  The 12v system was rewired in 2013.  AIR CONDITIONING, HOT WATER, & ICE MAKER  This is the boat you want to buy!
