The Hans Christian 33 is a classic long distance passage maker and is without a doubt the biggest 33 ft sailboat made. The interior is as spacious as many 40 ft boats and includes features like a queen-size bed and a separate shower, often not found on much larger vessels, making it an ideal live aboard cruiser. Hans Christian build quality is legendary. From the interior joinery to the hull layup, Hans Christian yachts are some of the most reliable and highest quality yachts in the world.
One might expect a 33 ft boat with a capacity of 95 gal fuel and 100 gal water to have very little storage space because of the large tanks. However, the HC 33 carries her fuel and water in the keel leaving all the space under the settees and berths available for storage.
NAKIA is unique among Hans Christian 33s. Built in 1982 and previously owned for 26 years by a couple who had continuously maintained and upgraded her, she is a prime example of a ready cruising boat. Cruised full time since 2004 in Mexico, Central America, South America and the Pacific she is located in Honolulu, Hawaii. After making seven passages over 2,000 miles you might expect a boat to be weathered and beaten, but NAKIA is in excellent condition and all she needs is food and fuel to be ready to sail to anywhere in the world. We purchased her two years ago with the intent of cruising however our current situation has changed our plans. Recently outfitted for a sail back to the mainland NAKIA is ready to take you anywhere.
Many Hans Christians have badly weathered teak decks that are a maintenance nightmare. On NAKIA, all teak decks forward of the cockpit have been removed, sealed and coated with non-skid paint. The reduction in maintenance effort of this configuration is obvious, however the largest benefit comes from the reduction in heat absorption. Teak decks get very hot in the tropical sun and that heat can linger long after the sun sets. Thanks to the new deck, NAKIA is cool and comfortable even without large sun awnings.
The teak hatches have been removed and upgraded to Lewmar Ocean series hatches, again reducing maintenance and increasing reliability. An additional Lewmar hatch has been added over the pullman berth giving ample ventilation to a previously stuffy space.
The interior of NAKIA is as individual as her exterior. Two custom cabinets, one over the sink and another forward of the stove provide even more storage for the galley. The interior has been lovingly maintained throughout the years and glows with the rich color of Burmese Teak.
Enter via the companionway into a cozy galley, to port, and main cabin. The galley has a double sink, 3-burner stove, refrigerator and ample storage space for cooking and serving utensils. Continuing forward leads into the queen-size pullman berth on the port side. Forward is the head, shower stall and chain locker. Proceeding aft on the starboard side is a large hanging locker, the navigation station and settee. Aft to starboard is the private double berth. Engine is conveniently located under the companionway stairs.
