The Hans Christian 33T (HC33T) was designed by Harwood Ives and built by Hans Christian Yachts. Like all Hans Christians, Re Metau is a well-built double-ender, solid and comfortably seaworthy. The cockpit is safe, and the boat can easily be sailed single-handed. This timeless classic with teak above and below decks is extremely well equipped and customized with everything you need for full time cruising; from rigging less than 10 years old, an arch with dinghy davits and raised cockpit seats, a water-maker, to the recent dinghy and outboard, to name just a few.

The layout is as spacious as many 40-foot boats and sleeps 4 comfortably. There is full standing (6.1ft) headroom and good ventilation throughout via large overhead hatches, bronze opening portholes, dorade vents with stainless cowls, and a wide companionway – all screened.
Forward is the enclosed anchor locker. Aft of this locker is the head with an electric macerator toilet. The separate shower stall and single stainless-steel sink vanity with marble countertop both have pressurised hot and cold water.
Aft of this is a Queen-sized Pullman berth lies to port with reading lights, bookshelves, oil lamp, drawers and locker storage beneath. The 2 bins beneath the berth are large enough to stow spare sails and much, much, more. Separate hanging lockers and more drawer storage lies to starboard.
Next to port is an L shaped settee with fixed dinette, and another long settee to starboard that can quickly convert into a bunk bed. Everything has stowage behind and beneath, and shelves run along the hull.
Located to port at the foot of the companionway is the galley, equipped with a 3-burner gimbled stove and oven, a double stainless-steel sink, also with pressurised hot and cold water, and refrigerator with large freezer box. Massive amounts of practical storage continues via numerous drawers, lockers, and cabinets.
The Navigation Station is to starboard with storage below the chart table. The bulk of the electrical systems equipment are concealed in a sizable equipment locker located aft of the bulkhead where the electrical panel is mounted. The engine is located under the companionway steps.

Aside from her eye-catching appeal, sea-kindly motion, and traditional beauty, the things we love most about Re Metau were not readily apparent; insightful details such as a dedicated trash bin and brass curtain rod holders; her deep gunwales and cockpit coaming always kept us dry; her wide companionway with full screens and swing doors made others envious when the insects were buzzing; and her cavernous storage rivaled their larger, more costly yachts to name just a few. For the past 15 years, she has been our comfortable, cozy home as well as a safe, blue water vessel. These last 7 years were lived self-sufficiently offshore, so you can be sure she’s outfitted to take you anywhere you wish to roam.
Re Metau has a USA Registration and there are no known outstanding mortgages or encumbrances
