43' Hans Christian HC43T Ketch


Description: Minhal is a lovely example of this fine cruising boat. Explore the coast in comfort and style, or safely circle the globe; she is well suited for almost any type of sailing you can think of. Designed by Harwood Ives and built in the King Dragon yard in Taiwan to the highest standards, this is a very substantial vessel. Essential systems have all been overhauled or replaced where necessary. Hull is sound and blister-free, teak decks are in excellent shape and were recently re-caulked. Upgrades include: new chainplates, standing rigging and roller furling. New sails in '13. All interior cushions replaced with new foam and Sunbrella Ultra-suede fabric and are in excellent condition. New Sea-Frost refrigeration, all new propane system. All new hoses for engine and exhaust. Separate engine and house charging systems, featuring a new Balmar large-frame alternator and Smart controller for the house side. All new primary wiring. New house batteries in '10, which as of this spring, will still run the refrigeration for five days between charges.
There are three separate sleeping cabins; two doubles and a single. Plus, a pilot berth and a pullout berth in the main cabin for a total of seven. An eighth small passenger could sleep on the settee.
The large head features a stone countertop and a separate, tiled, shower stall.
The galley is a pleasure to use, with plenty of counter space, a large refrigerator, double basin sink, three burner stove with oven/broiler, and ample storage.
She is surprisingly fast for such a substantial boat and is wonderfully balanced and handles well under several sail combinations. Reefing is rarely needed as she sails very well under just headsails and mizzen, but also balances nicely with just a reefed main and the staysail; a fully self-tending rig. Under power, the Isuzu diesel has proved to be strong, reliable and fuel efficient.
The capability and seaworthiness of these boats has been well documented. If you are looking for a comfortable, seaworthy cruiser, with beautiful, traditional lines, this is the boat for you.
