THIS IS A NEW ORDER YACHT, AND PRICES MAY VARY WITH TYPE OF EQUIPMENT:
Hans Christian Yachts are renowned for their seaworthiness, luxury accommodations, workmanship and attention to detail that combine to provide a vessel that you can be proud of and one which will take you in comfort and safety wherever you wish to sail. For 27 years this model has been tested in all conditions that can be found at sea, and survived them all. Why not stay with world class proven performance? These vessels are built at Pantwee Marine’s yard in Thailand under the expert control of New Zealand a master shipwright from the salthouse school of New Zealand. Buyers are encouraged to visit the yard, during construction, and experience the charms of Thailand during the custom build process.
This new boat specification sheet has used prior built Christina 43's. Since there were no photos taken during the new builds that are available now, I decided to show yachts that are now sailing and being used. The C 43's here in have all cruised some near, some far, but all have been in most all conditions that the ocean we love can have when Nepture has a bad day. These yachts give you an idea of how others have added various options to their yachts and this will allow you to see what has worked in the past. Certainly we live in a era that comes up with new accouterments, electronics, and on and on. but the true cruisers try to keep it simple as possible, while enjoying the state of the art items that make the cruising live a bit more comfortable.

The builders have a life time of ability in fiberglass reinforced plastic construction. Pantawee Marine Company Ltd (PML) is the highest quality yard in Thailand, and is a family run operation. Jack and his wife Jum are a great team and have built a busy and profitable yard. Jack is an expat from New Zealand who learned his trade from the famous Salthouse school of boat building. His knowledge of yacht building is incredible. There is much to think about and plan when you take on a project such as this, and it is both exciting and satisfying to be able to get a yacht that is practical for your way of life. The use of teak can be altered to meet your desires. The weather decks, side sheer teak, and other teak can be replaced at lower cost factors.
