Hans Christian 33 1988

PRICE £79,000

With a somewhat cult following in the blue water community, JORI is a fantastic example of these modern classics. With outstanding finish throughout JORI has not only been well looked after but has undergone recent upgrades of a full navigational suite and recent sail upgrades among other things. Built in 1988 in a highly regarded Taiwanese boat yard you can understand how the Hans Christian 33 gained such a reputation with the quality fittings on deck to the well thought out accommodation below. Viewing is well recommended since boats such as these do not find themselves on the market often.

Fitted out by the renowned Elephant boatyard on the Hamble River, JORI was originally built by the Taiwanese Shin Fa yard. The 1980's is widely considered the 'Golden Age' of boat building in the region due to the high quality output and traditional styles and the Hans Christian 33 is a prime example of why. 

Both the hull and decks are hand laminated with a white gelcoat finish and given a 'simulated planking' styled finish complete with stem and stern posts for effect. Below the waterline the boats were fitted with a keel hung rudder with encapsulated iron ballast. When new the hull was finished with an epoxy coating, upon the last full antifoul removal further coats of preventative epoxy were added. 

The build quality is best noticed on deck however. Teak decks complete with bronze fittings and Panama fairleads combined with a higher gunwale offer comfort and safety when forward of the cockpit. The cockpit itself is finished with varnished teak in places with a well positioned locker for storage. 

The combination of a large bowsprit and traditional tan sails creates an iconic profile under sail. All spars are anodised alloy from Kemp Masts and the standing rigging with swaged terminations are stainless steel. The boat is rigged as a cutter with a full size furling genoa and a loose footed staysail, on the inner forestay. The forestay meets the deck at the head of the bowsprit whilst the inner forestay is fixed just aft of the stem head on deck. The solid timber bowsprit is secured with a bobstay and complete with whisker stays. The mast is keel stepped and fitted with granny bars on deck. 

Slab reefing mainsail with lazyjacks with halyards and reefing lines at the mast. The genoa is on a roller reefing whilst the staysail is of hanked on fittings complete with matching colour cover. There is also a cruising chute with a snuffer. All sails are of fairly new age from North Sails. 

All boat covers match the traditional colours and style of the boat. These include a cockpit cover, spray dodgers - with the boats name, windlass cover and granny bar covers. There is also a mainsail cover cut to fit around the lazyjacks.

Having undergone an extensive navigational upgrade over a couple of seasons the boat is now fitted with modern Raymarine hardware. The GPS and chart plotter were new in 2017 with an ICOM VHF/DSC unit fitted along with a Raymarine AIS receiver added in 2016. The Autopilot is of older fitting however serviceable nonetheless, the Furuno Radar unit is similar with both being from 1990. 

The galley is fitted with a twin burner, grill and oven gas cooker along with a top loading style fridge below one of the work surfaces. Heating is from a diesel fired hot air system and hot water is provided from either a 240v immersion heater or via the engine fed calorifier. There is both a white and red lighting below for overnight passages, there is also a shore power circuit with RCD protection. The boat has three batteries on board with one designated engine battery and two for the domestic systems. All are of lead acid type and 105Ah capacity. 

Fitted with a 35lb CQR style with 50meter 8mm chain rode controlled from the foredeck with a Vetus Electric windlass. The boat also has a Fortress alloy kedge anchor with warp rode. Also included is a S120 spade anchor that is brand new.

Engine access is through the companionway by removing the steps and base unit, the entire engine bay is fully sound insulated. The engine model, a Yanmar 4JH is a naturally aspirated four cylinder attached to a mechanical gearbox and shaft drive. The propellor is a fixed three blade and made of bronze. 

The boat is finished below in teak joinery with varnished finish and many bronze fittings. By making use of the full volume below the boat provides a slightly unconventional layout. The head unit is forward in the bow, finished with a marble effect sink. Through the heads you have access to a hanging wet locker and forward through to the chain locker.

Coming aft from the heads you find the skippers bunk to port with a large double berth and a full complement of drawers beneath and storage surrounding it. Looking to starboard is the navigational station which uses the forward end of the saloon settee to make a forward facing navigators seat. All instruments and chart storage are easily reached from this position. 

The saloon has a table unit that hinges off the galley space to port with a curved settee facing aft. To starboard is a bench settee that runs the length of this space. Storage is provided in lockers below and overhead shelving. 

The galley itself has been designed with cooking underway in mind. The cook is able to brace themselves into all comfortable positions when underway due to it's shape and the units around.The galley is finished with brass fittings and an array of storage. 

Opposite the galley to starboard is the aft cabin which is separate from the boats main living space. Providing a good sized double bunk and again complete with abundant storage this is another well used space. 

General Equipment on the vessel includes:

 - Fenders and warps

 - Manual and electric bilge pumps

 - Radar Reflector 

 - Jonbuoy mounted on the pushpit.
