43' Hans Christian 43 Christina


BON AMI is a Hans Christian "Christina" 43, which is a blend of strong traditional elements of design combined with state-of-the-art hull and foil shapes. This moderate displacement long distance performance cruiser has a luxurious handcrafted interior of warm teak for a feeling of classic cruising comfort.  These boats are famous for their comfort, sea worthiness and sailing ability.  This is a true blue water vessel that can take you anywhere in the world you want to go.  Hans Christian yachts carry a legendary reputation for building strong and able world cruisers. When Scott Sprague was approached to create a more modern and faster offshore cruiser for this company, he drafted the Christina series and they have proven themselves on all the world's oceans to be fast, strong, able and to have excellent upwind capabilities. With their large tankage and copious storage, these boats make excellent long distance cruisers.
