Hans Christian type sailing boat, anyone have a list?

Hello, I'm new to sailing and I'm currently looking to buy a boat. I fell in love with the Hans Christian design. No need to warn me about teak maintenance, I understand I will need to take care of it. I'm just wonder if there are any other boats with a similar wood/fiberglass hull design, that remind me of tall ships of old? Looking for stuff in the 27 to 35 ft range, that are cruisers and liveaboards.

Is it a canoe stern or a double ender you are after ? Or does it matter ? also welcome to sailing . One good thing about owning a boat like a Hans is that you will never wonder what to do with any spare time .

Friendly Tip: Go to bluewaterboats.org and look over the drawings. Plenty to read there and lots of boats that may appeal to your taste.

Good luck on your search.

BTW, I like the HC boats too. But they are relatively expensive and others are out there that may suit one who likes a traditional styled boat.

Re: Hans Christian type sailing boat, anyone have a list?

It looks like Steady Hand beat me to the best tip which came to mind on this, which is to go to www.BlueWaterBoats.com & do a search for Hans Christians --> Search Results= Since when you search for a particular design on that site, it'll find what you're looking for, boat wise. And it'll also show you several other boats which are similar to the one your studying (searching for). So that'll help you to find more boats of a particular (similar) type.

Also, when you just do a standard online search for reviews on a specific boat design, often times in the reviews that you'll find, several other boats of the type which is in the review are listed. Especially in say reviews done in Cruising World magazine, with their "Classic Plastic" column, & reviews being the epitome there of. And it's a good column, without question.

I'd check Bob (Robert) Perry's blog, & website as well. Since he's reviewed even more boats than he's designed. http://perryboat.sail2live.com/ http://www.perryboat.com/
Also, he's very active over on Sailing Anarchy Forums www.forums.sailinganarchy.com
And too, add www.SailboatData.com to your list of useful tools. As they have the specifications for thousands of boats listed. Often with a "Cliff Notes" sized blurb on the design too.

And not to wreck your dream. But while you may be somewhat familiar with the perils of having a lot of teak on a boat's topsides. There's a more insidious use of teak: And that's in decks. Since at some point in a boat's life, the fasteners holding the teak onto the underlying substrata, usually marine plywood, will begin to leak. Then after a while rot will then begin to form in the plywood, or worse, the plywood & a balsa core underneath of it. With the required fix for this being brutal from both a man hours, & the grueling nature of the work standpoint. As well as being crazy expensive.

You can read about the process of fixing such decks in many threads here on the forums. So that at a minimum you can make informed decisions when boat shopping. And possibly (preferably) learn to pass on boats with teak decks.
