The sloop HENCE was custom designed as an ocean cruiser. She has proven herself to be safe, comfortable and sea worthy. She is a modern design (NASA) swept fin keel, raked bow with rounded (radius) chines. The original/current owners have cruised all over the Pacific and Carribbean before shipping the boat back to Hawaii. She is sturdy and blue-water ready.
The owners love her large comfortable cockpit with full cushions. It is protected by an aluminum and glass dodger with a canvas sailing bimini to protect from the elements. The cockpit has a teak foldout table and binocular tray.
The saloon is finished with a maple sole and bulkheads outlined by teak trim. A large maple table with two folding leaves doubles as an eating and social gathering place below.
Thick comfortable cushions are throughout the boat. The galley has a deep double sink with running hot and cold water. HENCE is outfitted with a 16 gallon/hour water maker. A two burner gimbled stove has a harness and a guardrail. There is a full size 12V refrigerator and freezer accessible from the galley.
On the port side down below is a navigator's table with access to electrical panels, radios and a sat phone antennae for use below. The radar screen can be adjusted to be seen by the navigator from the chart table.
The head is compact with a bronze toilet and stainless steel lavatory. The wet locker drains into the shower drain.
There is a double aft berth and a single forward. They are fitted with lee clothes and have personal storage in each. There is a USB charging station in the forward stateroom.
The sloop HENCE his a well-founded craft and is very comfortable both at sea and at anchor
