Hans Christian 38 rebuilt to factory specs - stunning! $189,000

This outstanding vessel is truly offshore ready.  Many are advertised as “offshore ready”, but Mayaluga is truly offshore-turnkey.  Provision her, step aboard and go!  Rebuilt from the ground up, the recent professional survey states: ……. in many respects this a new vessel, and superior to the factory original.

Hans Christian’s are legendary offshore vessels, heavily constructed with hand-laid GRP and tons of teak everywhere.  This quality of construction is no longer economically viable.  These vessels perform well and provide an extremely comfortable Rolls-Royce-ride in any weather. The Burmese teak interior is from a bygone era with 11,000 man-hours invested in the joiner-work alone.  When you approach one of these beautiful vessels with her springy shear, your heart will truly beat faster!

Mayaluga underwent a very thorough $210,000 full refit before going offshore in 2016 and is truly a stunning vessel.  While away, she was regularly maintained, constantly upgraded and improved by knowledgeable and fastidious owners. She is currently enjoying another 20,000 cosmetic refit.

The Bluewater Cruising Association chose Mayaluga as their offshore-ready show-boat for the Vancouver Boat Show in January 2018.  This classic vessel is infrastructurally sound and cosmetically stunning. Most equipment is latest generation and less than 3 years old.  The recent professional survey puts Mayaluga’s market value at $250,000.

Recent significant upgrades and renewals include teak decks and coring removed, new synthetic coring and fiberglass non-slip professionally applied, new chain-plates, new standing and running rigging, custom reefing system for mainsail, and rebuilt mast and boom. Rebuilt engine, engine room sound insulation, new 12v distribution panel and wiring, all LED lighting, 7 x AGM series 27 batteries, 500 watt solar with 3 MPPT controllers, custom hard-dodger and bimini, new stanchions lengthened to hip-height, stainless 1’’ safety rails all round with secure gates, new 6 man BDC offshore life-raft, 9’ parachute anchor with 250’ rode, new high-end EPIRB and the new Raymarine E7D navigation suite includes chart-plotter, radar, sounder/fishfinder and TillerPilot.  New Icom 802 SSB (Single Side Band radio) with Pactor modem IV, automatic 140 antenna tuner, KISS cable ground-plate system and a dedicated SSB antenna with an additional emergency 27’ whip. New Icom AIS full transceiver (transmit and receive) unit, new Spectra 150 gallon per day water-maker, New FrigoBoat F50 freezer/fridge unit with through-hull cooler unit.

Some vessels are advertised as “offshore ready”.  Mayaluga however, is really and truly offshore ready.  She is fully serviced and literally ready to go again – just load your gear, provision her, step aboard and sail-away”.  Due to many recent offshore modifications Mayaluga is now in far better condition that when she left Victoria in 2016. She is raring to go adventuring again!
