The name Hans Christian conjures up associations with boats that are heavy, sometimes slow, but always seakindly; boats that are laden with teak and luxury interiors wrapped into the form of a traditionally styled of a canoe-stern double ender. We’re talking big bowsprits, high bulwarks, butterfly hatches, husky bronze fittings and a kind of character that speaks of seaworthiness that has its roots in American popularity.
As a 41 footer weighing in at over 40,000 pounds in typical cruising trim, she’s in a class of its own as a heavy displacement cruiser. Influenced by the latest design thinking of the time, the underwater form has a split keel arrangement somewhat similar to company’s Telstar Keel first appearing on the Hans Christian 38 Traditional in 1984 where it helped with close windedness and light air performance.
Aided by her split keel, the 41 Traditional has been described as an easy boat to sail and owners of Hans Christian boats are not looking for speed but rather comfort. In this department, the boat excels with a gentle seakindly motion in a manner only heavy boats can deliver.
It’s probably best to describe the boats as being semi-custom in nature. There were at least five variations of layouts; four were described in the original brochure and named the Molokai, Harmony, Atlantic and Pacific. The most popular was the Molokai layout with its twin head arrangement and double berths both forward and aft. Interiors are of a very high workmanship and incorporate many ideas that proved popular for Hans Christian in prior models.
“MalaChite” is the more popular MOLOKAI layout. Upon entering the companionway to Port is a guest stateroom with door. Opposite is the guest/day head which is Near the companionway and good for using at sea. Forward to port is a compete galley large with lots of storage U shaped for use at sea A giant sit down nav station that is larger than any other boat this size is across the galley on starboard with a navigators chair, ships
Service panel and custom electronics panel. There is a large settee forward of the nav station and opposite U shaped dinette. The master berth is forward of the main bulkhead with a Pullman berth to port and settee and hanging lockers opposite. The master head is forward of the master cabin and has a separate shower area and access to the chain locker.
Hans Christian was known for their solid teak wood work inside and
“Malachite” is no exception and features tongue and groove solid teak throughout with bronze opening ports.
