Under just two long term owners, this Hans Christian 38 with the preferred Telstar keel has been lovingly maintained. Being a Maine boat she has typically been out of the water, under cover, for eight plus months per year. In recent years the current owners have begun to replace a number of things including sails and covers etc., thus making her a boat that should require little as the new owners ready themselves to take over her care.
Wired for 12 Volt DC and 110 Volt AC service.

The Hans Christian 38's are known for their richly finished fully varnished teak interiors with teak and holly soles. Two comfortable staterooms provide berths for four, but the salon dining table makes down to a double and the straight settee to starboard affords a berth for a seventh in a pinch. Abundant natural light and ventilation with two large hatches, one a handsome traditional butterfly hatch, and nine bronze ports. Extensive lighting with several overhead dome style lamps and then reading lamps at each berth and settee.

Next aft and to port is the enclosed Head with separate stall shower. Manual W.C. plumbed via a Y valve to the waste tank, Vanity with sink and H&C pressure water.
The Salon is very spacious with a U-shaped dinette to port with large pedestal table. There is some storage under the settee and in lockers behind the seat backs and shelving and lockers above. A straight settee is to starboard with similar storage arrangements, aft of which is a bureau with yet more storage. The engine is mounted under the inboard end of the dinette settee and inboard section of galley, but the joiner work panels remove easily for very good access.
The Galley is aft of the Salon to port and is really a cook's galley in a 38' sail boat.

Cooking is off of a Force 10 gimballed three burner propane stove with oven. There is a large divided ice box for chilled food stuffs and plenty of storage for crockery, utensils and dry goods.
