45' 1983 Norseman 447 CC Cutter


Last Updated: 2024-05-01

HANA HOU is a Pacific Ocean veteran cruising boat, with a round trip from San Francisco to New Zealand along with extensive cruising to her credit. The Norseman 447 is one of Robert Perry's best (and favorite) designs - built for safety and comfort offshore in any conditions.  The 2-cabin layout features a large centerline aft cabin bed, one of the benefits of centre cockpit layout. The cabins are nice and light thanks to numerous portholes and light prisms. Both cabins have their own ensuite heads.  There is a great galley for cooking on passages, very comfortable saloon and lots of storage.  This vessel is a top quality performance cruiser built by the Ta Shing boatyard.
