1980 Hans Christian 38 MK II

Are you ready to sail around the world or do you want a reliable boat to enjoy the Sea of Cortéz? This Hans Christian 38 MK II boat spent the last two cruising seasons in the Sea. With her Hasse-made light-air asymmetrical spinnaker, easy boarding with a swim ladder, and cockpit shades and cushions, this boat is the perfect way to enjoy the Sea’s beauty. She is also ready to sail across the Pacific, with a water maker, windvane, and almost-new heavy-duty cruising sails.
