Stunning Hans Christian 38 Traditional! World cruiser ready to go! This is a heavy displacement double-ender cutter that is both beautiful visually and incredibly seaworthy with many circumnavigations to their credit. Above the waterline, the styling is classic Hans Christian; a long bowsprit, springy sheerline, and rounded canoe stern with lots of teak. Below the waterline youll find a hull with very rounded sections, a full keel with cutaway forefoot, and a big barn door rudder. The HC 38T is unquestionably the strongest, best constructed, and finished boat in its class.

Heure Bleue has been cruised from Florida to the Bahamas only three or months of the year for the past nine years. The current owners purchased her in 2012 when she was fresh out of an extensive refit. She is extremely well equipped for the knowledgeable cruising sailor who can appreciate her many seaworthy qualities. Shes just been laid up in Green Cove Springs, Florida, for the hurricane season and her Canadian owners are moving forward to their next adventure.
