Many thanks for the interior shots ........ you are very fortunate as I guess there are a few envious people besides myself - but I would have to buy two and strap them together to make myself a catamaran.
Fair breezes to you.

The ladder has a little mechanism that allows it to be deployed from the water. Basically two ends that when pulled open a latch on both sides that hold the ladder in place. But you have to be quick or the ladder, coming down, will knock you out.

So why was she so high and dry for such a long time?

I truly don't know. As far as I can tell it has nothing to do with the condition of the boat. Maybe the price? This sort of boat doesn't seem to be that popular anymore in Europe. But I don't really know much about the market. It is right for me and that is all that counts.

Re: Launch of "new" Hans Christian HC41T - Pictures

Semco, semco, semco. I love that stuff and attest to all the claims. Slowly converting over to Semco...eyebrows and rubrail now Semco, soon handrails. Caprail and Taffrail will stay varnished, along with anything that has a cover, like hatches, or that can be easily removed.

I'd be very surprised if the stern platform was not a very expensive special order item meaning this boat either had a buyer that backed out or it had an owner. Either way it sure looks brand new. Awsome boat!

Re: Launch of "new" Hans Christian HC41T - Pictures

Gorgeous boat, lucky guy.

FYI, I have switched from Semco to this:

Tropical Teak Oil/Sealer Classic

I have found the color to be more appealing - especially two to three months after application - and, in Florida and the Caribbean, I am getting 12 months plus on horizontal surfaces, 2-3 years on some of the vertical surfaces (inside of toe rail, for example). This has freed me from the tyranny of teak!!

If you go this route, be aware that it is not easy to remove. Two initial coats to start, and then just a wash and recoat when needed. Where it has worn off from scuffing, it is easily patched, not the case with varnish or other hard coatings. It also comes in a lighter version.

Safe voyages

Re: Launch of "new" Hans Christian HC41T - Pictures

I agree with redsky49 on the Star bright Teak Oil Sealer. I sanded old varnish off the cockpit coamings, companion way drop boards, seat locker lids, hand rails and toe rails on my 41 Rhodes Pearson "Duchess of Argyll". It went on smoothly with a foam brush, and has held up well for a year now. And if one area gets worn, merely wash it with light detergent and water, let it dry, and apply over that spot. It blends well with the finish around it. I'm sold on it.

Re: Launch of "new" Hans Christian HC41T - Pictures

I do a little side work on a super yacht from time to time. Oceans of teak decking, it gets Semco before every charter or before the owner shows up . It's amaZing .

I am going to stick my neck out a little but I think she was a boat show model if it the same boat I am thinking of.

My boat is hull number 45.

She just arrived via container ship in HK. We put up the mast at the Royal HK Yacht Club. I received lots of comments. Even from people who just stepped of very expensive looking 60+ feet yachts. I didn't see anybody commenting on those :-)

That's a LOT of teak for a sailor who says he's somewhat lazy...

Congratulations on Anna Marie, she's beautiful!
