33' Hans Christian 33


The HC 33 is a classic cutter that's a very capable offshore boat; with a full keel, high ballast-to-weight ratio, deep cockpit and an oversized rudder placed far aft, she's safe and sea kindly under power or sail. She also has a comfortable, well laid out interior that's feels much larger than her size would suggest and is finished in lovely teak to Hans Christian's exacting standards.

The HC 33 is appropriate for anyone looking for a cruiser or a boat that will handle San Francisco Bay's worst conditions with aplomb.t's an outstanding design and a proven yacht that can comfortably cross oceans.
