48' Hans Christian 1985 48T CC Hull #5

CONFIRMED--NO HURRICANE DAMAGE! STILL AVAILABLE!

"I Yam What I Yam" is Hull # 5 of only 30 Hans Christian 48T's that were built. She is a true seagoing vessel, capable of taking you and your family around the world, around the Caribbean, or simply up and down the East Coast. Her interior represents the finest craftsmanship that boats of this era had, with beautiful teak joinery, fine marble, and luxurious leather, while her exterior is as rugged as they come. She has a custom hard dodger/pilothouse, which was approved by the Hans Christian builders.

Only 30 of these boats were built and they don't come on the market often, so don't miss the chance to take a closer look at this beauty. Her current owners have cruised her extensively, sparing no expense on redundant systems and anything and everything they have needed to make her comfortable and seaworthy. She is a gem!!! Breathtaking! More photos and video coming soon!

    Accommodations

    Luxury everywhere you turn!

    Upon entering from the companionway, descending upon solid teak stairs (no flimsy ladders on this boat!), you are immediately drawn into the warmth and spaciousness of this ship. The galley to port is a chef's dream, with marble countertops, refrigerator and freezer, double stainless sinks, a propane stove and oven, fresh water filtration system, and tons of storage. It's shaped as a deep U, so there's room to hang on and plenty of support when cooking at sea.

    The nav station is truly set up as an all-purpose communications, safety, and navigation station. A 110 computer and a 12V computer both link to a flat screen monitor, and of course all of the navigation instruments are duplicated and run on repeaters from here as well. The space is amazing--you can lay out your paper charts, run your laptop, and keep on eye on your desktop ALL while you talk long-range on the SSB radio. It's an office to be proud of!

    As if the nav station wasn't a big enough office, the large aft cabin is fitted with a custom desk that folds down into a work station, so two people can work at the same time in different parts of the boat. The design-work that went into all of this is brilliant (there's even a leaf that folds up on the desk to allow easy entry into the head!). The large double bed has been custom-fitted with a new mattress made specifically for the marine environment. Walking through the head, you come to a small washer and dryer--quite a luxury on a cruising sailboat!

    Forward of the galley, there is a spacious u-shaped dinette with leather seating and a marble tabletop. The compression post for the mast is brass--just another example of how every detail of this boat was finished with beauty in mind. There is seating for 8 between the dinette and the settee on the starboard side.

    The double bed up forward is offset and provides comfort for guests or additional crew as well as its own private head with a full stall shower.

    The enclosed hard dodger/pilothouse is a room of its own, which encloses fully in cool weather or can be left open in warm weather. With it's comfortable seating leafed table, it could be an outdoor dining room or whatever you wanted it to be!

    That's the thing with this boat. She is whatever you want her to be, and much, much more! "I Yam what I Yam" is whatever you make her.

    She has it all...
