1979 Hans Christian 38 Traditional38'
Green Cove Springs, FL 32043Sell a boat like this
The owners say, "SELL THIS BOAT!!" Motivated sellers have cut the asking price again and offer this heavy displacement double-ender cutter that is both beautiful visually and incredibly seaworthy with many circumnavigations to their credit. She's currently laid up for hurricane season in Green Cove Springs, Florida, and ready to be seen. Above the waterline, the styling is classic Hans Christian; a long bowsprit, springy sheerline, and rounded canoe stern with lots of teak. Below the waterline you'll find a hull with very rounded sections, a full keel with cutaway forefoot, and a big "barn door" rudder. The HC 38 Traditional is unquestionably the strongest, best constructed, and finished boat in its class.
"Heure Bleue" has been cruised from Florida to the Bahamas only three or four months of the year for the past nine years. The current owners purchased her in 2012 when she was fresh out of an extensive refit. She is extremely well equipped for the knowledgeable cruising sailor who can appreciate her many seaworthy qualities. She's just been laid up in Green Cove Springs, Florida, for the hurricane season and her Canadian owners are moving forward to their next adventure.
The sale price of this boat does not include her 2015 AB 10 ft aluminum dinghy with 2019 Yamaha 30hp two-stroke outboard, and a Honda EU 2000i portable generator, but they are all available as a separate negotiation.
