She is still owned by her original owner who bought her new in 1987 and has spared no expenses in keeping her in beautify condition all these years. She has a modern, traditional style fin keel which makes her unique. She has been well maintained and upgraded through the years so she is ready to find new sailing adventures. She is extremely well built with a high level of comfort at sea providing a smooth ride and is a very manageable size.
Most designs are credited to Robert H. Perry, Harwood Ives, Scott Sprague and Tommy Chen. Boat production began in the early 1970s.
In the 1980s Hans Christian Yachts commissioned the designing of a new series of boats based on a more modern hull design with the goal of the "ultimate cruising sailboat." The end result was the Christina series with the 52 and 48 models designed by Doug Peterson and Scott Sprague designing 40 and 43 versions. Construction was done in Taiwan at Horng Bin Marine Yacht boat yard and in the early 1990s the molds and construction were moved to Thailand.
With its gorgeous interior, comfort, roomy throughout, absolutely immaculate and fully equipped with a well-known history, this cruiser is ready to sail!
