Distancia is a perfect example of a classic yacht meticulously maintained by a knowledgable owner. With multiple upgrades, she clearly represents pride of ownership as soon as you step aboard. All systems work perfectly. An excellent choice for the serious blue-water sailor, she'll take you anywhere and stand up to a gale if you can.
The Hans Christian 36 is a heavy, double-ended, cutter-rigged cruising yacht designed specifically for ocean sailing. Like others of its kind, she's often described as a traditional North Sea double-ender with pleasing lines that draw admiring glances. The hull is solid (and thick) hand-laid fiberglass. The solid bulwarks allow the lifeline stanchions to be mounted vertically for better strength than those through-bolted to the deck.
This yacht has benefited from several recent upgrades in the last two years such as 600 W solar panel (2019); electric head (2019); refrigeration (upgraded 2019); Dickinson diesel fireplace (new 2019); AIS wifi (new 2020); Rocna anchor w/300 chain (new 2020); propane grill (new 2019); hot water heater (new 2018); 4 stage battery charger (new 2019); Vizio TV (new 2019).
The bottom paint, cutlass bearing, and prop shaft are 1 ½ years old. New transmission.Perkins 4-108 diesel has had all standard maintenance including oil and transmission fluids, belts, and impeller. The engine runs great with no smoke and starts immediately when cold.
All systems work perfectly.
