The Hans Christian brand has a complex history with a series of different owners a builder over the years. Spirit of Lindisfarne is hull number 145 of believed built total of 155 HC33's. Built in Taipei, Taiwan by Shin Fa Industries she was imported into the UK for final fit out and commissioning by the historic Elephant Boatyard on the Hamble.
From a period regarded as the 'Golden Age' of Taiwanese boat building the hulls and internal fit out are of a high quality. Both hull and decks are constructed of traditional hand laminated GRP mouldings finished externally in a white gelcoat.
Below the waterline the hull is of the traditional long keel design with keel hung rudder and encapsulated iron ballast keel. When new the hull was given a preventative epoxy coating to which some additional coats were added when the antfouling was last removed. Above the waterline the hull has a simulated planking effect moulded into the topsides with simulated stem and stern posts. The bulwark moulding is clad with teak and fitted with bronze 'panama' style fairleads.
On deck the finish is of the same quality with the teak laid decks adorned with lots of high quality bronze fittings and areas such as the grabrails and helmsman's seat varnished to pick out some of the detailing. The cockpit coamings are teak clad in a similar fashion to the bulwarks.
Spars & Rigging
The silhouette of the Hans Christian 33 has become as iconic as the design and largely thanks to the bowsprit cutter rigged sloop with the full genoa and boomed staysail. All spars are by Kemp Masts of anodised alloy construction, fitted with all stainless steel 1x19 standing rigging with roll swage type terminations. The forestay is fitted with a roller reefing system while the staysail is rigged loose footed on its own boom.
Extending forward the bowsprit is of solid timber construction and secured with a bobstay and whisker stays. The forestay is secure at the sprit's forward end with the cutter stay secure at the stem head.

On deck the boat is appointed in a traditional style with a solid teak capping rail sitting on top of the teak clad bulwarks. The side decks, coachroof and cockpit are all fitted with laid teak recessed into the deck mouldings. The addition of brass cowlings for all on deck dorade boxes finishes the classic appearance of the boat.
The foredeck is dominated by the substantial samson posts, centrally located with an on deck storage box located immediately aft. Crew can venture out on the bowsprit with teak foot plates provided making picking up a mooring easier. From the foredeck sided decks run aft to the cockpit along the sides of the boat. With the moulded bulwarks and guardwires outboard, the relatively high coachroof topped with a solid timber grabrail inboard crew are never short of a handhold when venturing on deck.
The keel stepped mast is fitted with bronze and timber 'granny bars' on both sides with timber pegs for securing the various halyards when not in use. Immediately aft of the mast on the coachroof is a large traditional style timber opening deck hatch, letting light pour in to the saloon. A stout sprayhood provides protection over the companionway at the aft end of the coachroof.
Clad in teak the cockpit spans the full width of the aft end of the boat with the deep coaming wrapping around the whole area and providing a deep safe and well sheltered space. The bronze pedestal and wheel dominate the area with an elevated teak helmsmans seat a the aft end. Storage is provided beneath the seating in a selection of lockers.

As you may expect from a boat with such classic lines the interior has a very classic feel to it with an abundance of rich teak joinery work finished in a deep satin varnish and brass fittings creating a very cosy feel. The actual layout below decks is not as you may expect in a conventional yacht design and the designer Harwood Ives has cleverly made use of every available inch.
Situated at the forward end of the accommodation space is the heads compartment which again is finished in a classic style, tiled throughout with a marble effect sink surround and brass faucets. The anchor chain locker is located at the forward ends and is accessed from the heads compartment with sufficient space to accommodate the outboard. A separate hanging locker is also located within the compartment for the storage of foul weather gear.
Immediately aft of the heads the skippers bunk occupies the port side. A full size double berth located within an open compartment it offers a very comfortable living space with drawers immediately beneath and hanging locker space opposite for the storage of personal gear.
To starboard at the after end of the passageway to the saloon the nav station is located. Utilising the forward end of the saloon settee as a forward facing navigators seat all instruments are within easy reach. Storage for charts, pilot books and bosuns gear is provided within the chart table.
The saloon area is rather unusual with the saloon table hinged off the galley unit to port and a curved settee facing aft. To starboard a bench settee runs the length of this space. Storage is provided around the area with overhead shelving and lockers outboard of the settee backs.
Open to the main living space the galley ideally laid out for use at sea with the cook being able to jam themselves into a working position regardless of the sea conditions. Again the galley is appointed with lots of brass fittings including manual faucets as back-ups for both freshwater and salt water supplies. Fitted with gas cooker, twin sinks, top loading fridge and a great selection of storage the galley is very generously proportioned for a boat of this size.
Opposite the galley on the other side of the companionway is the aft cabin, separated from the boats main living space. Providing a good size double bunk the cabin is well appointed with good storage provided throughout.
