Hans Christian 33 T

I have put a bid on a Hans Christian 33. My ultimate goal is sailing the south Pacific for a few years. This boat is smaller then I was originally thinking of, but, this is a vary nice boat.
Did I say a VARY nice boat?
What I would like to know is ,,,, is a HC33 a good boat to live on this. Can two people be happy on a boat so small?
I was originally looking for something in the 41 foot range, but this HC is in perfect condition. What do you that have been on long range cruises think???? Thank you.

Re: Hans Christian 33 T

I know several couples who have been liveaboards and cruised the HC33. It's a cult thing. The reason they look so great when in brokerage is someone is spending a lot of time and energy to keep all of that exterior teak prestine. Expect to apply an additional coat of varnish twice a year, and to strip it to the bear wood and start in again every six or seven years.

The HC33 is a little beamy for its length and displacement. IMO
